Date details +
    Room: Main Shrine Room

    Sitting 6:30pm, Program 7-9pm

    Shambhala New York is pleased to announce a special visit with Lady Diana Mukpo. This evening is offered as a conversation hosted by Lady Diana. This is a very challenging time for the Shambhala Community. Many people are struggling with how to balance the richness of the teachings combined with the desire for change. Lady Diana would like to provide a space where people can express their concerns as well as their aspirations for a stronger community going forward. Sitting begins at 6:30pm. This event is free of charge; donations are welcome.

    Lady Diana Mukpo was married to Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche for seventeen years and has taught within the Shambhala community for over 30 years. Lady Diana has helped in many ways to plant the banner of Shambhala in the West. Her book Dragon Thunder recounts her life with Trungpa Rinpoche. She is an accomplished dressage rider and trainer, competing at the international level.

    Her vision is unyielding and good. Her intention is pure, her intention is to help elegantize the world... From her presence and existence in sharing my life, the Sakyong Wangmo has provided lots of sharp edges and lots of warm memories and lots of sad stories. The Sakyong Wangmo's vision and her fearlessness and her particular type of impatience has brought us here. Therefore she deserved to sit on the same platform with me as a teacher of Shambhala Vision.
