Project Sunshine Phase 2


Project Sunshine began as a one year project to bring healing light to the problem of sexualized violence in the Shambhala Buddhist community. The final report pushed the leadership of Shambhala to acknowledge the problem, and after decades of silence, survivors of violence are now being heard!

The next phase is going to be about creating safe space and a grass roots process for communities to (1) digest what has happened and (2) identify a good way forward.

I am personally committed to offering an intelligent way for us to move forward toward authentic healing and deepening our spiritual paths through this process. I am excited about the plan I am developing with a team of experienced and caring people for Phase 2. I will announce the plan and a fundraising drive for funding the plan at the end of March.

I believe that we can no longer look to the Shambhala leadership to sort out this problem. We need to take responsibility for creating a life affirming way forward that is rooted in integrity. And that’s exactly what I am doing.
