Highlights from the opening event of "Creating Enlightened Society," May 11-13 at Craneway Pavilion in Richmond, California
"We're in such a high, auspicious moment on earth," said Jyoti, Spiritual Director of the Center for Sacred Studies as she opened the "Creating Enlightened Society" gathering hosted by Shambhala in Northern California. She is world famous for bringing together the Thirteen Grandmothers dedicated to preserving the indigenous wisdom and culture of the first nations of humanity.
"I know that I would rather spend my time dreaming this, than the one I find when I turn on TV," she told the gathering.
The weekend is taking place in Craneway Pavilion that overlooks Richmond Harbour of San Francisco Bay. The first night was opened by Shambhala acharyas Adam Lobel and Susan Skjei.
"Creating Enlightened Society" is the second is a four-city tour of public dialogues hosted by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. His book, The Shambhala Principle, was published this past week. He is to address the gathering over the weekend along with Bishop Marc Andrus, the Episcopal Bishop of California; the Reverend Angel Kyodo Williams, founder of the Center for Transformative Change; and Chade-Meng Tan, founder of the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute.
