Cheerful Shambhala Day and welcome to our new Center Director!

Shambhala Day 2015 LhasangWe’d like to send a big THANK YOU to everyone that attended our recent Shambhala Day celebration. In case you missed it, Shambhala Day falls on the Tibetan New Year, and as customary, we gathered with our honored guests Acharya Moh Hardin and Sangyum Cynde Grieve, who helped us bring in the new year by celebrating and watching the annual talk by the Sakyong.

This year we had additional treats – Ms. Heather Wenrich took her oath as our new Director!  Also officially joining the council were Dena Lackey, Communications Director, and Kevin Moore, Finance Director. We were sad to say goodbye to our previous director, Palmer McLean, and we wish her luck in Austin.

Additionally, retiring from the council was our beloved Doria Cross, who stepped down as the Representative of Culture and Decorum. However, fear not; for she will continue to teach classes here, hopefully for eons to come.

We look forward to seeing you at a program or an open sitting soon!
