Dear Centre directors, leaders, teachers, meditation instructors and program coordinators,
This manual was written to express the view of the curriculum changes, to describewhere the new program is seated within the larger path, and to provide detailedadministrative information to assist you in understanding how you might offer it in your centre.During 2008/2009, approximately 14 centres of different sizes in North America andEurope ran pilots of the Way of Shambhala I program. The information in this documentincludes what we have learned from those centres. We expect to make further refinements over the next few years based on increasing experience implementing thecurriculum. However, the feedback that we have received to date suggests that the view,methods and expression of the Way of Shambhala curriculum provides a very potent anduseful path of training for practitioners on the Shambhala Buddhist path.We ask that centres and groups who are interested in rolling out The Way of Shambhalato first read this manual and then make an appointment with the Shambhala Office of Practice and Educationcmandelker@shambhala.orgor the Shambhala Europe Office of Practice and Education <sabine.rolf@shambhala-europe.org> to discuss roll out.We greatly appreciate your dedication to Shambhala vision, and look forward to workingwith you as we proceed.In the Vision of the Great Eastern SunAcharya Adam Lobel Ms. Carolyn Mandelker Ms Sabine Rolf Kalapa Acharya Director, OPE Director, OPE Europe
