Lions Roar : January 2015
Announcing LionsRoar.com first thinGs first: I want to thank you for reading this magazine. We’ve been at this for some thirty-six years now, and it’s the support of people like you who’ve made it possible. As you prob- ably know, the magazine business isn’t an easy one. There’s scads of competi- tion, not least of all from the web. And yet, because of you, we’ve been growing. Now, the Shambhala Sun Foundation is a non-profit organization, so growth, for us, doesn’t translate into new cars or what have you. It means we get to turn around and invest in what’s next. For example: video; in-person community retreats with teachers whose work we publish; promoting and sponsor- ing events and initiatives from around the Buddhist (and non-Buddhist) world; books and digital edi- tions. Those are all things we’re doing now. We love it all and know it’s helpful to others, so we’ve been making plans to do much more. But first we needed a proper website. We did okay for years with our array of Shambhala Sun and Buddhadharma sites and blogs; they always grew in traffic, despite the fact that they became out of date, were hard to search and navigate, and were never a visual match for the magazines themselves. So now we’ve improved and simplified things, bringing everything together on one attractive, easy- to-use site: the new LionsRoar.com. Taking its name from the Buddha’s metaphor for the fearless proclamation of the truth, LionsRoar. com gives you access to content from both the Shambhala Sun and Buddhadharma: The Practitio- ner’s Quarterly, all in one place. All searchable. Better navigation. Fully mobile- and tablet-friendly. And much better looking. And, since life does go on between issues of our magazines, we’ll continually offer fresh news, updates, commentary, and other online exclusives at Lion’s Roar. To keep up-to-date and share our content with your friends, just visit our homepage, sign up for our weekly newsletter of top stories, and friend and follow us on social media. If you’re a longtime Shambhala Sun or Buddha- dharma reader, we have no doubt you’ll find LionsRoar.com a much more usable, enjoyable presentation of the thoughtful Buddhist teachers, thinkers, and creatives you’ve come to know in the magazines. If you’re newer to us, we thank you for your sup- port as well. We want you to know we’ve gone out of our way to make Lion’s Roar of real use to you, with helpful special sections to guide you as you explore Buddhist meditation and thought. May LionsRoar.com be of benefit to you, and to all. — rod Meade sperry, editor, lionsroar.coM PHOTOBYMEGUMIYOSHIDA You will learn to: • Integrate mindfulness into daily life • Develop awareness of what truly brings you happiness • Increase your appreciation for life • Strengthen your relationships Presenters include: Mark Coleman • Vinny Ferraro • Linda Graham • Rick Hanson Thupten Jinpa • Dacher Keltner • Chade Meng Tan • Carole Pertofsky Shauna Shapiro • Thanissara • Anam Thubten Rinpoche February-June, 2015 Registration now open: www.awakeningjoy.info can be learned.
