I followed a teacher who was part of Shambhala, and so I spent some years learning the teachings of Shambhala, reading Choygam Trunpa and Sakyong Mipham’s work, and making many good Shambhalian friends.  Because of that close tie, I was asked to write about my feelings when the Sakyong and other leaders were accused of sexual and personal misconduct.  Here are some essays I wrote over time about that issue.
