Sunday Gatherings – December 2021

Each Sunday, Shambhala offers “Sunday Gatherings”, a series of free weekly online gatherings for the worldwide Shambhala community where we can come together to connect with our hearts and with each other.

Weekly gatherings will feature a guest presenter and include a meditation or contemplation practice, as well as Q&A or group discussion. Guest presenters will offer either a short dharma teaching or will speak about a particular topic that is meaningful to them.

Upcoming December Gatherings

Exploring Natural Hierarchy and the Right Use of Power
with Susan Skjei
Sunday, December 5 at 3pm ET

Natural power dynamics exist in nature and in our own experience of our world.  When we are in tune with these, we feel synchronized and we experience the world as sacred.  In this talk and discussion we will explore how habitual patterns can distort our relationship with power, status and hierarchy and how we might reestablish a connection with natural hierarchy and use power wisely in a variety of circumstances. Details.

Mathias Pongracz 

Sunday, December 12 at 3pm ET

Join us for a Maitri Bhavana Practice led by Mathias Pongracz, as a way for our worldwide community to come together to practice for the wellbeing of others each month. “Maitri Bhavana Second Sunday” includes a brief talk, a discussion period, and Maitri Bhavana practice. Maitri Bhavana is a regularly scheduled mahayana practice for the seriously ill, or for major global turmoil and disasters. It contains tonglen practice and may be done by anyone.
