A Year of Deepening in Compassion

The path of the Bodhisattva Warrior begins with developing affection for ourselves and expands this to others, dissolving the barriers that divide us. To support this practice, the Shambhala Acharyas have offered to lead the community in a year long series of talks, contemplative and meditation practices from the Buddhist Mahayana teachings of our lineage.

Our Shambhala Center is joining this class as a Center and we will be doing the class live (most weeks) in our Shrine room at 1PM every other Sunday. We as a Center beleive this will be a rich and wonderful way to come together as a community and practice and study together.  

Part II


The Joyful Snow Lion: the Paramitas, is the second course of the four-part series exploring the Shambhala Mahayana teachings. This course includes an exploration of Relative Bodhicitta and how we put our aspiration into action with the practice of the Paramitas.

It also includes:


  • Five live classes with an Acharya with an opportunity for Q&A.
  • The classes will be recorded, and each will be led by a different Acharya.
  • Access to the recordings will be available in the course, if you miss a session.
  • A live discussion led by the Acharyas. Live discussions are not recorded.
  • Readings and book suggestions to deepen our understanding of these teachings
  • Contemplations to help us integrate these fundamental teachings into our daily lives
  • A discussion forum.
