Creating Enlightened Society in the Sierra Foothills
One Breath at a Time
Shambhala Vision is rooted in the principle that every human being has a fundamental nature of basic goodness. This nature can be developed in daily life so that it radiates out to family, friends, community and society.
A Talk On “Liberation and Confusion, View and Action” with Marshall Bishop
When: Sunday, August 21, 2016/10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Where: Sol y Breath, 14709 Mono Way, Sonora
View is the way we see things, the way we see the world. Depending on what our view of ourselves and the world is, colors our particular way we relate to our perceived reality. So, depending on that view, we act and react to our world. As we encounter the teachings and practices of Shambhala and Basic Goodness, we begin to see that our view of ourselves can loosen and expand, profoundly. Join us for this talk and bring a friend.
Welcome to Sonora Meditation Group’s website. We are excited to make the teachings and practices of Shambhala a living reality in the Sierra Foothills. Here you will find the founding principles and essential elements of this Buddhist path of awakening, with a vast resource of related materials and references. You will also learn about the full range of opportunities to participate in developing your relationship to Shambhala – locally, regionally and internationally. You may discover an affinity with these teachings and practices and want to connect directly with the Group. If so, contact us by email or phone, or start coming to our weekly meditation evenings. Whatever you choose, know there is a place to answer your heart’s prompting for a sane and enlightened society, and it starts here and now.
