This past weekend (December 8-10) Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche convened a gathering of the leadership of Shambhala International at the Shambhala Center in Boulder, Colorado. The gathered guests included members of the Sakyong's Council, Mandala Council, Council of Manjushri, and Dorje Kasung Command Council. In addition, a number of individuals were asked to attend because of their formal roles within the administration, or due to their keen interest in the health and vitality of the community.

We are looking forward to posting more information about the conference in the days to come. Were you there? Please send your impressions, notes, comments, etc to .

Thank you to Richard Reoch and Tim Riley for bringing us the audio file for this talk, and to James Hoagland for the images on this page.
