Talk to me about Shambhala please
I am looking to visit a Buddhist center soon and from the looks of it the two best options in terms of a center that has activities on days and hours I can actually make it are a Shambhala center and a Zen center.
I am familiar with Zen (intellectually), but Shambhala is new to me. I became familiar with it while reading a book by Pema Chodron and I very much enjoy her teaching. However I have heard that it's controversial to some primarily due to it's founder's antics. It also seems it's not Buddhist, but Buddhist like.
Anyway, I really don't know much about it as my above paragraph makes clear so I thought I would ask you folks what it is about and if it is 'kosher'. I do like the idea of their weekend training programs and the level 1 program starts next week so I am considering that.
