Shambhala Vision has a NEW website.  http://shambhalavision.blogspot.mx/

You can contact Shambhala on the Facebook page but keep in mind there is no signal up there right now so they get to it when they can. Gracias for understanding. :) https://www.facebook.com/shambhalavision


Poor Shambhala, Poor Zipolite, the news is not good.



Thankfully no one lost their lives but it's really a disaster and as with all these things help is slow. People are just realizing how badly damaged things are. There is no water or lights. It's hot and there is no electricity for fans. Apparently there are lots of singing frogs that have appearred and it's very hard as one might imagine to sleep.

 I am praying for my friends and family affected by this terrible Hurricane Carlotta. I am praying the government will get help to the people who have been badly affected by the hurricane so they can get on there feet again.

This year will be an important tourism year for Mexico and it's important the people of Zipolite can recover and benefit from it as the rest of Mexico will.

Poor Zipolite, it's so sad. It's just amazing that no one was killed. It's so sad about all the beautiful flowers and trees and all the peoples home and businesses that have been damaged or worse destroyed.

I visited Zipolite in 1999, two years after Hurricane Paulina and Gloria of Shambhala told me the scary story of how she had to hang on to the roof otherwise it would have blown away. Gloria is amazing but she getting on in years and her health has not been the best. I ask you all to please take a moment and say a prayer for Gloria and for Shambhala and for all the people she has working for her so that they can recover.

I love Shambhala. We love the meditation point and I was so looking forward to doing yoga up there and watching the birds and the ocean and just meditating. The sunset is so beautiful. We love the Karma Kleansing Ceremonies!



I'll keep you posted on things as I hear them. Here are some links you can check.

Stay Strong Gloria! We love you! We're Praying for you!
Stay Strong Zipolite and all our of loved ones and amigos at the Roca Blanca and Posada Esmeralda and to Franco and Slyvia and Javier, Tomasa and Juanito and everyone who has been so kind to us over the years, we send you many prayers and blessings and positive energy that everything comes together and you can all unite and make Zipolite even better- Greener, more Eco-friendly, solar, wind power???

I'm praying that lots of opportunities come your way and everyone can look at the door opening and not the one that closed.

I know after the fire people really pulled together and you'd be amazed how fast things got cleaned up and I know the people of Zipolite will overcome this and be better than ever and it will look like this again!!. Viva Shamhala!! https://www.facebook.com/shambhalavision
