Hello everyone! While I have enjoyed summer in the Northern Hemisphere, and our communities in the Southern hemisphere have experienced winter, this blog has been inactive! I’ve also been having trouble with my twitter account, and hope to get it up and running again soon.
It’s been very quiet in the Halifax offices of Shambhala over July and August. We have few staff, and when 2 or 3 people take vacations, go on retreat, or work out of the office at the same time, it feels almost completely empty. Anna Weinstein, Director of Centre and Group Support has moved to Toronto for 10 months, and will be working from there. Maggie Colby, our International Program Manager, has been away at land centres supporting large international programs, and David Brown, the Director of the Office of the Kalapa Court has been supporting the Sakyong while at land centre programs. I have taken some time off to move house. I believe that has left only Jill Scott (Office of Practice and Education) and Tim Watkins and his finance team in the building most recently!
There are plans afoot, and we are all resuming our activity, so please stay tuned for more blog activity and twitter feeds pretty soon! As always, I would love to hear from you.
