Shambhala Training 1 — 6 Comments

  1. We are very pleased to announce that Elizabeth (Shanti) Olmstead will be the Assistant Director for this program! Both Craig and Shanti are great teachers; they were some of the first students of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche!

  2. Hi folks, I am pleased to announce that Prof Soraj Hongaldarom, a philosopher lecturer at Chulalongorn who is exploring current as well as ancient dimensions of Buddhism, will be joining as a guest speaker in my Friday night openning talk of Shambhala Training. (Prof Soraj’s wife Krisana is fearlessly introducing vajrayana Buddhism to Thailand in the Tousands Stars Foundation.)

    Prof Soraj and I are partners in an effort to introduce Meaningful Broadband” to Thailand, which in my own view is an expression of “Shambhala warriorship” — in which the dark forces of the contemporary world are freed for the purposes of compassion and enlightenment. This is not an abstract agenda but a concrete effort to alter the course of the digital revolution inspired by Shambhala teachings. It has won support from the leaders of Thailand in all sectors of society.

    Craig.

  3. Sorry the message got delayed Dr Craig – if there are links included messages get put in the potential spam folder and await approval.
    Good news Dr Soraj will be there – along with Elizabeth should be a good introduction.

  4. i felt seriously disgusted on dec18, 2009 with how the ‘suggested donation’ deal works at shambhala – extremely pushy and i couldnt get over my idignation at the unashamed greed i sensed in how this business – yes, business! – is run. if you want buddhism, look elsewhere. this is not it.
