    Room: Zoom Online

    Please join us for an hour of chat following the Karme Choling presentation -- use this reusable Zoom link for every chat session.

    Here is the description of the Karme Choling series:

    Over the course of 2024, join more than twenty individuals who began their Buddhist path as students of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, or within the Vajradhatu / Shambhala community, and who have continued walking the path of dharma in an extraordinary variety of ways.

    Their Dharma Journeys

    Speakers will describe:

    • Their dharma training within the Vajradhatu / Shambhala organization
    • What further training they sought
    • Which teachers they have studied with closely
    • What aspects of the dharma they have been emphasizing in their own roles as students of close teachers and as teachers themselves

    Speakers and participants will together, explore the richness of our greater Vajradhatu/Shambhala extended dharma family, as well as have an opportunity to cross-pollinate our understanding of each other’s lineages and paths. There will be ample time for questions and discussion.
