Message from the Sakyong regarding fire at SMC - 1 comment

Filed under Sakyong and Family, Shambhala News Service

To the Shambhala Community,

The Sakyong Wangmo and I have been staying informed of the situation at Shambhala Mountain Center. We began practicing as soon as we heard of the dangers and have received many supplications from students to hold Shambhala Mountain Center in our prayers.

Shambhala Mountain Center is a special place, infused with the blessings of our lineage and we are deeply saddened by the losses that we’ve heard about. At this poignant time, we are holding the well-being of Shambhala Mountain Center in our hearts and in our practice.

With a tender heart,

The Sakyong

Good Society Part II: Feeling the Goodness

Photo by Annie Spratt on Unsplash The second part of a two-part series by Shastri Russell Rodgers. For part one, click here. In Part I of this two-part essay, we looked at the genetics behind the universal human impulse to create good society. The logic was this: everywhere there are humans, we form society. Therefore, it must be in our genes. The first part of this essay was basically a book review of Blueprint: The Evolutionary Origins of a Good Society, by Nicholas Christakis, a Yale professor. Dr. Christakis proposes that encoded in our genes is a “social suite” that is common to all societies that are able to survive the test of time and circumstance. This “suite” includes : good leadership (and respect for that leadership), cooperation, ... continue

One Madder Woman, by Dede Crane

Long time sangha member, Dede Crane, has a new book out! “These madmen — and one madder woman — paint as if suffering seizures! One cannot make heads or tails of the work without taking ten paces back.” From the author: One Madder Woman is an historical novel set in Paris in the mid-nineteenth century about the life and times of the French Impressionist painter, Berthe Morisot, the sole female in the original group of artists that became known as the Impressionists. The book has been described as a love story between 2 sisters, between a genius and her art and between Morisot and the infant terrible of the Paris Salon, Edouard Manet, who painted Berthe more than any other model. continue
