with Acharya Mathias Pongracz
Contact person: Christopher St. John

With trust in basic goodness and daring to experience the sharp edge of reality, we move forward with gentleness, increased awareness, and inquisitiveness about the world, as it is. We can extend ourselves to others fully and with kindness.

This program is online only.

Acharya Mathias Pongracz was born to Hungarian parents in Africa, where he passed his childhood with 6 other siblings.

Acharya Pongracz joined Shambhala in 1983 and attended seminary with Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche in 1984 and again in 1985. When the Saykong (then Sawang) taught his first 3 month seminary at SMC in 1992 he asked Mathias Pongracz to serve on the Seminary teachers faculty.

He is currently based in Vienna, and teaches in, French, Hungarian and German, traveling to Shambhala Centers in Eastern Europe, France and other countries.

He also teaches programs on Mindfulness Stress reduction, and has practice in Qi Gong and the art of hosting.
