The Series


Meditation in Action and the Path of Service
The Dorje Kasung is a unique and engaging service organization within the Shambhala community comprised of men and women of various ages and diverse backgrounds.  Founded by Chogyam Trungpa and modeled on the ancient tradition of dharma protectors, the Dorje Kasung embody the principles of Shambhala warriorship in a very direct and accessible way.
Over the course of the training we will explore these dynamic practices and teachings, which are vibrant expressions of meditation/compassion in action.
Co-led by regimental commander Charlie Green and senior Shambhala teacher & kasung Jesse Miller, this will be an informative and hands-on day of engagement, enrichment and fun. This training is open to everyone regardless of their experience and would be particularly beneficial to anyone who is involved or interested in the path of service within Shambhala. Please come and join us in this truly unique opportunity!

Everyone is qualified to take leadership training, and it is not necessary to take these trainings in sequence.

This program is free to Shambhala Interns and Teachers.
