    Room: Off Site

    Open to all; Drop-in group so no registration is necessary.

    Beginning March 29th, the Portland Shambhala Center will be hosting an ONLINE book study group. We will be reading Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior by Shambhala's founder Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche. Beginning with the preface, we will be going through the book chapter by chapter, with facilitation by one of our center teachers. Group will most likely meet alternate Sundays - stay tuned for further details.

    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.
