The Cleveland Shambhala Center expanded in the Summer of 2017.  This is an opportunity to have our new Shrine Rooms blessed and to celebrate the hard work that the community has put in over many years to make this possible.  If you cannot join us for Acharya Spiegel's program, then please come celebrate with us after the program ends!  A small donation is requested to defray costs. (if you are coming to the class already you do not need to register for this program)

Bodhisattva Refuge VowAcharya Eric Spiegel grew up on Manhattan's Lower East Side in a lefty family that he describes as "fundamentalist atheists."

In 1971 he met and became a student of  Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. He has worked in the financial sector for decades and in 2002 he left Wall Street to devote more time to teaching.

The following year, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche appointed him an Acharya, which means "senior teacher." He is the Acharya for the New York Shambhala Community and teaches and has students in NYC, around the US, and internationally.

He has worked extensively with people facing death and with issues related to death and dying. He also works and teaches within the Shambhala tradition on developing a more awakened attitude toward wealth and money.
