I’m delighted to share here a selection of recent Dharma talks and discussions. Many of these talks are live presentations at meditation centers such as the Shambhala Meditation Center of New York, as well as other places. If you would like to discuss any of these topics further, or if you are interested in bringing me to your meditation center, school, workplace, or other locale for a talk on mindfulness, meditation, dharma, or spirituality and wellness, please be in touch.

The Future of Shambhala

Ethan invites Aarti Tejuja, Dr. Shanté Paradigm Smalls and David Perrin to the show for an open discussion of the revelations which have recently transformed the Shambala community and together look forward to where they see the future of Shambala heading.

The group examines the impact which allegations against former Shambala leader Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche of abuse and misconduct has had on themselves and the community. They examine questions of inclusivity, the responsibility of leadership and awareness towards marginalization in Shambala and other spiritual communities. Join these four for an honest reflection of missteps taken and the opportunity for moving forward with greater accountability, transparency and parity among all members of the Sangha.
