    Full Moon Shambhala Sadhana Gathering

    The Kongma Sakyong has requested that all Shambhala centres and groups host a monthly Shambhala Sadhana practice and celebratory meal for all Shambhala community members. These will be opportunities for us to meet, practice together, and have conversation around themes of basic goodness and wholesome society. The intention is to foster experiences of basic goodness personally and societally, and to further bind us as a wholesome community.

    These monthly Shambhala Sadhana gatherings are specifically meant for Shambhala centre members, people already committed to the path of warriorship, even if they have not attended Enlightened Society Assembly. In other words, these gatherings are meant for people who are making regular membership donations to their Shambhala centre, or are considered members as regular volunteers, or are members but unable to contribute to the centre due to other considerations, such as being a full-time student, in financial difficulties, and so forth. The intention is for all members, including their families, to feel included.  We are a society. People who have not received the Shambhala Sadhana at Enlightened Society Assembly may participate in the full moon gatherings, but they may not join other Shambhala Sadhana practice sessions or do the sadhana on their own.

    This event is a snack potluck -- We will practice for an hour and then have conversation with snacks.
