The European sangha meets during its first ‘European Forum’

Filed under Community Articles, Regions, Eastern, SE Europe, Regions, Northern Europe, Regional Announcements

The European sangha is composed of different regions with their own cultures and languages. The establishing of these regions and their collaboration takes time and is in process for years. Some regions exist for more than 20 years. Some others are relatively new. The European Regional Directors and Coordinators (ERDC) meet regularly, using zoom.

From Thursday May 29 until Saturday June 1, 2019, European Shambhalians from all directions gathered in Dechen Chöling for the First European Forum. The seeds for this meeting came from various conversations at the Kalapa Garchen in 2017 and the German regional meeting in 2018. They were further developed in the conversations of the ERDC.
