Richard Sylvester

Shastri Richard Sylvester had the great, good fortune of connecting with Shambhala world while in graduate school at The University of Connecticut, in 1978. He soon moved to NYC, deepening his practice and study at NY Dharmadhatu and Shambhala Center for nearly 20 years. Richard has been delightfully engaged as Shastri at The Shambhala Meditation Center of Providence, RI since September of 2012. Shastri Sylvester very much enjoys his lifelong occupation as a jazz drummer. He finds balance with his practice as a contemplative psychotherapist, and lead facilitator with Acharya Fleet Maull's Prison Mindfulness Institute, engaged in Mindfulness Based Emotional Intelligence Training in the Rhode Island prison system. Additionally, he leads institutional and corporate mindfulness training for The Center For Resilience.
