Follow-up to Dr. Deanʻs email


As a follow-up to Dr. Deanʻs recent email regarding the Sakyong, below please find links to the most relevant official correspondence from Shambhala International.

These were also posted to our group Facebook page.

With sadness,

Group Coordinator



Over the summer and fall, we will be retooling our offerings a little bit in light of the recent controversy with the Sakyong. Our Ewa Beach Meetup and Honolulu town Meetup group meditation events will now focus on practice-oriented readings from Pema Chodronʻs book How to Meditate. Pema Chodron is treasured around the world for her unique ability to transmit teachings and practices that bring peace, understanding, and compassion into our lives. With How to Meditate, the American-born Tibetan nun presents her first book exploring in depth what she considers the essentials for a lifelong practice.
