THE STORY:

Shambhala (since the 70s) was hit by a hurricane and needs help rebuilding. I have been invited to spend my winter volunteering to rebuild Shambhala. I experienced this peaceful place a few years ago and fell in love. It was the inspiration for Shanti, the community i have, with others, been creating in Madrid, New Mexico since 2007. I've always wanted to do volunteer work and this seems the perfect opportunity to do it. Gloria, the proprietor, and i have been in contact for the past couple of months through letters. Its all volunteer and the hours are long.... but i believe in Gloria and i believe in this special place. I'm hoping to raise enough money to cover my airfare and a minimal amount of living expenses while there. Your contributions are appreciated immensely. I'll of course be documenting every second and am hoping that many paintings will come from the experience.

ABOUT:
Shambhala Vision, Zipolite, Oaxaca, Mexico
Service & Mission
We serve as a meditation retreat and a get away from it all community. Escape to paradise for a much needed eco vacation. Our cabins and rooms on the hill of Shambhala overlook Playa Zipolite.

We have a restaurant and work shop. Our meditation point overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the Bay of Cameron serves as a ceremonial site, creative activity center or for fireside chats around the Kiva (fire pit).

Gloria Johnson, the proprietor, is proud to offer her place as the spring board into Southern Mexico for those looking to relocate
