Major

Practice

It was my good fortune to start the year off right by attending nine consecutive days of instruction through the combination of "The Chariot of Mahamudra" weekend intensive with a full seven-day retreat. Both events were lead by Acharya Richard John at my local Shambhala Center.

I continue to seek stability by aiming to meditate one-pointedly. Also, I incorporate Lojong teachings and the Shambhala Sadhana into my regular practice.

About

Tina Turner is a Buddhist who lives in the South of France, is pretty much what I knew of Buddhism five years ago. It was around that time that I discovered my neighborhood Shambhala Center in Manhattan. I threw myself into the curriculum, became an active volunteer, and was inspired to take the Refuge Vow. The generous support of my sangha enabled me to experience Shambhala beyond West 22nd Street last summer when I attended the Enlightened Society Assembly at the Mountain Center in Colorado. While I am more comfortable as part of the support team, it became clear to me during that gathering that it was time for me to assume more leadership responsibilities. Consequently, I've contributed more frequently as a coordinator of programs during the last year.

Main teachers

Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche

Purpose

I believe that my practice will grow in precision, and my devotion to the path will be galvanized by attending the Warriors Assembly.

I entreat your kind support in meeting the cost of my participation.

Offering

By this merit, may all attain omniscience.
May it defeat the enemy, wrongdoing.
From the stormy waves of birth, old age, sickness, and death,
From the ocean of samsara, may I free all beings.

Thank you in advance for your consideration
