Dharma Study Group

The Portland Shambhala Dharma Study Group
meets alternate Sundays from 11am – 12pm online via Zoom. Please join us! All students, practiced and new alike, are welcome! This is a drop-in group so no registration is necessary.

Currently the group is reading Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior by Shambhala’s founder Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. We are going through the book chapter by chapter, with facilitation by one of our center teachers.

There is a basic human wisdom that can help solve the world’s problems. It doesn’t belong to any one culture or region or religious tradition—though it can be found in many of them throughout history. It’s what Chögyam Trungpa called the sacred path of the warrior. The sacred warrior conquers the world not through violence or aggression, but through gentleness, courage, and self-knowledge. The warrior discovers the basic goodness of human life and radiates that goodness out into the world for the peace and sanity of others. That’s what the Shambhala teachings are all about, and this is the book that has been presenting them to a wide and appreciative audience for more than twenty years.

Books for sale in the center bookstore. Contact the office to set up a time to come in.

Please make sure to check our monthly calendar in case of changes to the schedule.
