Cheerful Year of the Wood Sheep!

One-Year Temporary Monastic Residency Program: Training in the Shambhala Monastic Order at Gampo Abbey
For many years, it has been the vision of our lineage of Sakyongs that practitioners seeking to deepen and strengthen have the opportunity to do so within the container of a temporary monastic ordination; this has been practiced at Gampo Abbey for decades. At this auspicious time when Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche has established the Shambhala Monastic Order, we are now hosting this training for a one-year period which began in October 2014.
The year will follow an in-depth curriculum based on the principles of Tiger—friendliness, mindfulness, discernment, renunciation, selflessness, exertion, contentment, and confidence. It will also include frequent practice of Shambhala Meditation and other teachings of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, as well as of the Druk Sakyong, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.
