Shambhala International Program Manager Appointment

Mar 28, 2012

The Shambhala Office of Practice and Education welcomes, with delight, Ms. Maggie Colby to the position of International Program Manager.

Ms. Colby, second generation Shambhala Buddhist, brings to this position many years of devoted service in the Shambhala mandala.

Over the years, she has spent time at all the Shambhala land centres, living at Karme Choling in 2000-2001 and at Dechen Choling in 2008.

For the past 12 years, Maggie has been a close attendant to the Mukpo family, traveling to Tibet in 2001 with the Sakyong and Lady Kunchok, and traveling with the Sakyong Wangmo as her first continuity shabchi (attendant). She continues to volunteer as Head Shabchi to the Sakyong Wangmo.

It is with great appreciation for her years of devoted service and contribution to furthering the vision of Shambhala in this role that we say goodbye to Edith Sage. Edith held this position for five years and represented with great exertion and warmth the Office of Practice and Education at numerous programs throughout the mandala.

Edith has taken a job with The Synergy Company, a natural health supplement company in Moab, Utah.

We wish her all the best in her new adventure.
