"Magic in this case is power. It is the power within oneself. You have enough strength and exertion and energy to view things as they are, personally, properly and directly.  You have the chance to experience the brightness of life, and the haziness of life, which is also a source of power... It is not true that there is no magic these days, that we are in the dark ages.  The only magic that exists in this life, this world, is the particular phenomena we are all experiencing right this moment.  Right now, right here you are in this magic. It is choiceless magic."  Chogyam Trungpa 

Come join us for an evening with Shastri Sandra Ladley, a visiting teacher from California, where we will explore these teachings on the power of nowness. All are welcome.

Generosity Policy:
The full program price is a suggested contribution that allows the Center to cover program expenses and overall maintenance. However, it is important to our mission to ensure that everyone who is inspired to go forward on the Shambhala Buddhist path has our complete support. Therefore, we simply ask that you pay any amount that feels generous to you and that fits with what you are able to give. We are happy to accept an offering in the amount you are able to afford, either above or below the suggested level.
