I have been practicing the Dharma since childhood. I grew up in the Shambhala and Sun Camp mandalas, and begin my path of Kasungship when I was 16. I completed the Shambhala training levels in high school, and attended Dathün while in university, and at the same time started the Sacred Path levels. Most of my time since then has been spent volunteering for Sun Camp, where I am on the international leadership group, as well as the regional leadership group for Sun Camp at Dorje Denma Ling. I am also active as a Kasung at my local center, where I am the NCO for our squad.


I am an actor and artist living in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. I'm 28, with a thirst for travel and a love of the Dharma.

Main teachers

Acharya Emily Bower and Acharya Mitchell Levy


ESA is the next major step on my personal practice path. I have spent my 20's dedicated to Shambhala Sun Summer Camp, and now I feel that I need to deepen and expand my personal practice path in order to better serve the youth of Shambhala and at Sun Camp. I hope that attending Enlightened Society Assembly can help me better create and teach others to create enlightened society, both at Sun Camp and in my daily life.


I hope to take what I learn from this practice and to apply it my work at Sun Camp, as Lance Corporal for my local center, and to creating enlightened society in general.

Cost breakdown

The total cost of the program is $1,325. That includes the $535 tuition fee and the rest is for housing and food. The flight is separate and will cost around $200-300. I am looking to raise funds for the majority of the program fees.
