Program Details

Community As Path: A Six Week Series of Talks and Discussion


June 18 / 5:30 PM - July 23 / 8:30 PM

5:30 pm meditation (instruction available)


6:30 – 8:30 watch the talk, followed by discussion and refreshments


These talks are offered to stimulate discussion and build a sense of community.  
The program is about exploring issues around diversity and difference, not about arriving at final conclusions.  The goal is to increase curiosity and caring in our sangha.  From this place of curiosity and caring we can genuinely invite more diversity into Shambhala.  We offer an environment where people of all backgrounds can explore their personal experience of diversity with others.


Please note - in the series, the talks build upon each other, so come to as many as you can!
