Ruling Your World

The head of Shambhala (a global network of over 200 meditation and retreat centers) inspires participants by sharing how they can reach their potential and by discussing how to maintain a deep sense of well-being in a culture obsessed with winning, doing, and accumulating. The Sakyong, which means "Earth Protector," is considered a spiritual leader in Tibetan Buddhism, belonging to a sacred lineage. Today, he teaches the art of courageous leadership based on wisdom and compassion. He is the author of the recently released Ruling Your World and the national best-seller Turning the Mind into an Ally.
