Diana Mukpo Invites Community To Shambhala Household Retreat

Dear <<First Name>>,

We invite you to participate in the Shambhala Household retreat at Dorje Denma Ling, September 6-11, 2019.
 
The Shambhala Household teachings are one of the greatest strengths of our lineage -- the transmission of living our lives fully and seeing the sacredness in all situations. Household practice manifests by interacting with our fellow sentient beings in a decent, respectful and heartfelt manner. This practice has the possibility to bind generations and be a source of healing for the entire sangha. In light of all the pain and uncertainty we are experiencing in our community, it is important to remember the heart of our Shambhala society and the common ground that can bind us together during these difficult times.
 
We envision participation from all levels of practitioners, as there are no boundaries to creating household. For those who are just entering, bring your hearts, for those with more experience, come and share that with others.
 
We plan to host many activities -- from uplifted dinners where we celebrate our dignity, to sitting around the campfire sharing stories of our history. We will work with Ikebana, poetry, calligraphy. We will come together as community to support each other wherever we are on the path, be it Vajrayogini or Chakrasamvara, Scorpion Seal, Way of Shambhala, or just walking in the door. Our aspiration is to create an open and inclusive celebration of the heart of our Shambhala Buddhist teachings.
 
If you are interested in joining us and have special skills related to creating an uplifted household or sustainable living, please respond to this email and tell Dorje Denma Ling how you might share your knowledge with others during our time together in September.
 
I very much look forward to spending time with you all.

Lady Diana Mukpo
