Pioneer Valley Shambhala Center’s Statement and Commitment

The Pioneer Valley Shambhala Center is a community of meditators and dharma practitioners committed to the Buddhist path of awakening and compassion. Our community is experiencing deep heartbreak and confusion at the news of sexual misconduct and abuse of power by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, Shambhala’s lineage holder, as well as questions of accountability among his inner circle.

While we are engaged in a process of discerning how to relate to the upheaval and transformation of the international organization of Shambhala, we remain committed locally to teaching and practicing meditation, and to engaging together as a community. We welcome you to join us in practice and solidarity.
