    About the Presentation:

    Magnetizing Enlightened Society: Shambhala Leadership

    Leadership in Shambhala is a personal and societal journey. It is a path of being on the spot and mixing presence with selflessness. How do we hold our seats in the midst of uncertainty, bring out the best in each other, cultivate our strengths, and welcome many voices and energy into the mix? How can we magnetize wealth, auspicious circumstances, and fellow warriors to bring about the vision of enlightened society?

    In this discussion, you’ll be introduced to the teachings on leadership from the Government Pillar of Shambhala. We will also explore the challenges and opportunities in the greater Milwaukee area, and strengthen our shared vision and motivation.
