People of Shambhala is a webzine dedicated to exploring the ethos of contemporary culture, and how we can live authentically in an increasingly connected and complex world today.
Whether we’re looking at fashion and advertising, meditation and spirituality, or philosophy and “high culture,” our aim is to challenge assumptions, and to give our readers new perspectives and information to contemplate and debate.
First and foremost we believe that, though often dismissed as trivial, we can rediscover timeless and enduring values and qualities in contemporary culture, including at the more “pop” end of the spectrum.
Our aim is to unearth the sacred in the profane, to find beauty in the ordinary, and wisdom in the apparently trivial. And, as such, to provide a way of looking consistent with what the Bhagavad Gita refers to as the Atman (the higher Self) and what Confucianism calls Chun Tzu (superior man (or woman, of course).
