This European gathering is open to everyone who is interested in engaging with the future of Shambhala.

This gathering is open to everyone who is interested in engaging with the future of Shambhala, relaxing into being together, and celebrating as a community.

At this pivotal time for Shambhala we are challenged to see more clearly what our innermost values are, as individuals and as society. And we have the precious opportunity to ask ourselves, what we want to bring forward to uplift each other, how we can enrich our world and what support we can offer. As Europeans in Shambhala many of us have been longing for a common and diverse European identity.

In 2018 the idea of having a European Forum started to grow in some peoples minds and hearts. The European regional directors and coordinators - ERDC - are excited about going forward with this idea and Dechen Chöling is auspiciously supporting and hosting this European gathering.

For 2 days we will be exploring how to now manifest the Shambhala principles of basic goodness and enlightened society; we will have conversations and heartfelt exchanges that are meaningful and fun.

We will create a welcoming and safe practice container. In doing that, we are strengthening our European identity. We will reach out to the process team and our outcomes will be communicated and offered to them.

It is an honour to journey together with you.

In the Vision of Enlightened Society,

The European Regional Directors and Coordinators - ERDC
