Board Letter Regarding SMC Wildfire

Filed under Shambhala News Service

To the Shambhala Community –

As many of you know, last night, the Cameron Peak wildfire expanded onto the Shambhala Mountain Center (SMC) land.  SMC Director Michael Gayner is working with local authorities to assess current damage and communicate out to the sangha, and the Shambhala Board is working to support Michael and the staff who have evacuated the land.

For the most up-to-date information and communications, please visit the Shambhala Mountain Center Facebook page or their Cameron Peak Fire Update webpage.  

As new updates become available, they will be e-mailed to the SMC mailing list, as well as posted to the Facebook page and webpage linked here.  We expect more updates from Michael later today.

Please refer to his messages for the most complete and accurate information about the status of the land and structures.

The last 24 hours have been heartbreaking and devastating for all of us, given our deep heart connection to this sacred land. Michael has also communicated that the SMC staff is being supported and he is grateful for all of the care and love being expressed from our sangha.

We want to express our deep appreciation for the efforts of Michael Gayner and the SMC staff who are doing everything they can to protect this precious land.

Please continue to hold SMC, the staff, firefighters and Colorado residents in your practice.  As possible, we will continue to communicate how best to support our center and staff.  For now, the communications channels referenced above are the most reliable and current sources of information.
