“A Place Where Decency Can Arise.” Waylon talks with Dir. Michael Gayner at Shambhala Mountain. {Video}

 Walk the Talk Show With Waylon Lewis:

“We are learning to host a place where decency can arise.”
~Michael Gayner, Executive Director, Shambhala Mountain Center

One Take With Waylon Lewis & Michael Gayner:
While on “retreat” (working only 12 hours a day), Walk the Talk Show host Waylon Lewis sits down with longtime sangha friend Michael Gayner—Executive Director of Shambhala Mountain Center—to talk about life on a 600+ acre center settled in the Rocky Mountains. Meditation. Buddhism. Practice. Intention, and infusing “the moment with mindfulness and compassion” to begin to change the world.

Thanks for this Waylon. It was lovely to see you here and to host you and the others in my cabin by the stupa. I want to share a video of the final event in the series of Resounding the Profound Treasury – readings from the newly published collection of teachings of Chogyam Trungpa – which took place at the Great Stupa of Dharmakaya on Jan. 11. Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKryoZq6OVw
