  • Identity and Egolessness: an evening w Acharya Spiegel at the Shambhala Center
    In this modern era we are discovering new things about ourselves and proclaiming identity in broad new ways. This blossoming is visible in the queer community possibly more than any other sphere. The ancient teachings of the buddhadharma come from the point of view of egolessness (aka shunyata; lack of self-nature). And even within Shambhala we talk about having a “healthy sense of self”. How can we understand and experience the power of our identity while also genuinely cultivating egolessness? Join us for a Queer Dharma evening with Acharya Eric Spiegel, the original Gaycharya of Shambhala, to explore the coexistence of these ideas and experiences. The Acharya will give a short presentation on the teachings of egolessness followed by a discussion of our own personal journeys, experience, understanding and curiosity. Bring your questions and ideas! Acharya Eric Spiegel has been teaching in the Shambhala Buddhist tradition for over 40 years and has studied directly with both Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. As an Acharya (which means "Teacher" in sanskrit) he is one of a small group of senior teachers empowered by The Sakyong to directly represent the Shambhala Lineage. He will be giving teachings on death and dying this weekend and has agreed to stay Sunday night to meet with our community. There will be an opportunity to offer a heart gift to the Acharya at this program.
