Buddhist Project Sunshine (BPS) is a grass-roots Buddhist community healing initiative driven by a single goal: to renew the integrity of Buddhism in the contemporary world. The powerful feminist drive behind this project arises from inspiration from Yeshe Tsogyal, a great female Buddhist teacher in 8th C. Tibet.

Our work is informed by both traditional Buddhist dharma and Western psychological understandings of trauma and trauma healing. We strive to foster emotionally safe, respectful and honouring environments where people can practice dharma wholeheartedly and build fulfilling lives rooted in compassionate ethics.

Due to lack of funding, our work is currently limited to providing updates about the investigation into allegations of sexual assaults by Osel Mukpo (aka Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche), the former leader of the Shambhala community.
