The Shambhala Principle: Rising to the Challenge of Our Times

Naropa University founder Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche brought to the modern world the Shambhala vision of enlightened society. This vision's underlying principle is the inherent basic goodness of humanity. More than a mere hope for the future, the Shambhala vision is also a way of rising to the social and ecological challenges of our time.

Why do we meditate? For personal growth? Can meditation shift deep cultural assumptions about human nature? Can it transform our relationship to ourselves, to others, and to society itself?

Join Boulder Shambhala Center for a weekend exploration of these provocative questions. This weekend workshop includes meditation, teachings to rouse connection with our own basic goodness, and dialogues focusing on three aspects of social transformation—personal, interpersonal, and collective.

All are invited to attend, regardless of meditation experience.

Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche is Naropa University's lineage holder, the leader of Shambhala, and author of The Shambhala Principle: Discovering Humanity's Hidden Treasure.
