I received a sweet, heartwarming message the other week from Evan Goergen about his first Shambhala experience this year. Made me smile. Just wanted to share.
Want to share your Shambhala story with us? I’d love to hear from you and feature your story here on the blog! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org ~ Britz
I was just thinking about Shambhala and I realized that I never thanked you for answering my questions and explaining into far detail about the festival and how the love literally flows through the air.
We traveled 1,500 miles not knowing what to expect.
All we knew was what we saw on YouTube and what you told me about the festival.
I just wanted to personally thank you for introducing me to Shambhala, which was the first festival I had ever gone to.
Not kidding, the most life changing experience I have ever had.
In the best way possible.
If there was any place in the world that I could go, to find my inner self it would be Shambhala.
The faculty of Shambhala was the most caring group of people I have ever met in my entire life.
The energy in the air, the feeling of complete peace, and the feeling of being safe all were present there.
There was no point in time where I was bored, there were always new neighbors that would spark up on conversation and the next thing you know 3 hours have passed and there is a group of 20 people at your tent site laughing, and having a great time.
You know you had a good time when it hurt to smile anymore because the whole experience was filled with smiles, hugs, and laughter! ❤
There was no confrontations, arguing, fighting, or heated moments.
Everyone was living in such a peaceful manner with 10,000 people that they didn’t know.
It seemed drama was left outside of the festival and caring, love, support, and friendliness took its place.
Shambhala has been the greatest thing that has ever happened to me.
Whenever I’m slacking in school all the way over here in Minnesota, I think about Shamb and it gives me the encouragement to do better, and be a better person.
Shambhala, to be completely honest was the best week of my life.
I changed after I left my new home. I respect my life, nature, and others so much more. I also appreciate the little things so much more. I will attend Shamb every year until the day I pass.
Thank you so much! ❤
