Our three-fold strategy
Following the Kalapa Council Update that we posted on this blog in April called “Strategic Directions”, there was a huge response from the Shambhala community. Many people posted comments, suggestions and questions. We took the many viewpoints into account, took a careful look at the options before us and presented a series of strategic recommendations to the Sakyong last month. With his agreement, we are now putting those recommendations into effect. To read our three-fold strategy and the detailed background to it, please click here.
Part of our three-fold strategy involves tightening our belt for this immediate period. As a result some of our services will need to be reduced over this coming period. To read about these changes in detail, described in a letter fromm Carolyn Mandelker, the Executive Director of Shambhala, please click here.
We encourage you to read and reflect on these two important documents and contribute to a community discussion on this blog!
We would also like to thank everyone who contributed so generously to our most recent appeal, which raised $67,000. It was thanks to everyone who wrote in urging us to launch a further fund-raising appeal that we wrote to everyone asking for their support. We were deeply touched by the generosity of your responses and the many kind messages we received.
