People of Shambhala is dedicated to exploring the relationship between the ancient and the modern, and how the former still exists in, or has otherwise been replaced by, the latter.
Our method bears some similarity to “Cultural Studies,” an interdisciplinary field of study that examines both high and low culture, from language, philosophy, and fine art to movies and propaganda. However, our aim is to unearth the sacred in the profane, to find beauty in the ordinary, and wisdom in the apparently trivial.
Because we believe in the intelligence of our readers, and because we’re interested in truth and self-overcoming, we try to publish different points of view, especially if they’re not represented in mainstream discourse. As such, the editor and writers for People of Shambhala do not necessarily agree with all of the opinions expressed by contributors to this site.
