Shambhala Online offers interactive video dharma teachings over the internet. Shambhala Online provides an opportunity for the participant to watch a talk that is being given at that time (real time, not a recording), and for the participant to engage in discussion with the teacher and the other participants who are also online. Also look through the online library of previously-recorded teachings.
