One photo from the Shambhala Mountain Center update

Dear Friends,

A small group of SMC staff was able to make a trip up to the land yesterday (Friday 10/2), and we’ve posted some new photos below.

Additionally, we held a Town Hall meeting this morning, in which Michael Gayner offered a report from the trip up to the land and responded to many questions from the broader SMC community. A recording of that meeting can be viewed here:

Ongoing thanks for being a part of this journey, and please continue to share any questions you may have by emailing us at [email protected].

We’ll be in touch again soon.
