In his new book “The Shambhala Principle: Discovering Humanity’s Hidden Treasure,” Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche shares stories about his father Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and contemplates the teachings his father presented on basic goodness and enlightened society.

The Shambhala Principle challenges us to join meditative insight with social vision in order to create a culture of kindness and worthiness. Just as the Sakyong did himself, he invites us to contemplate our lives and the teachings we have received. As the Sakyong says in his book, “Even a small change can dramatically shift the long-term behavior of a system. One thought, one word, one person, can make a difference.”

Please join Jon Barbieri to read and discuss "The Shambhala Principle." All are welcome.
