Mess O'Shambhala: Responding to Scandal with Melanie Klein
Jan 06, 2020 Season 1 Episode 32
Julian Ocean

Here is the re-publishing of the original podcast featuring an in-depth conversation with the director of the Boulder Shambhala Center and the efforts she and this local center have been making to respond to the scandals that have rocked the Shambhala Community.

The publication of this podcast has lead much online criticism and also messages of support and appreciation.

-> I am planning to release at least 2 more episodes, responding to the controversy and criticism and to shed more light on the overall situation. One will feature Carol Merchasin, a lawyer who has been volunteering their time to help investigate the allegations of abuse at Shambhala.
