Support for a survivor of Shambhala misconduct

This is a fundraising request to show support for one of the driving forces behind the testimony that led to the findings of sexual misconduct against leaders of the Shambhala Buddhist community.

She volunteered to contribute details of her experience numerous times (and at considerable personal cost) to the Wickwire Holm investigation and Buddhist Project Sunshine, as well as interviews with media. The exertion it required for her to do so interrupted her education and work life, and our contributions here will be offered towards her healing, as well as lost tuition so she can return to pursuing her career path.

She prefers to remain unnamed in this appeal because she is eager to move on in order to refocus on her stalled education, but those of us who know her would like to show our gratitude and solidarity by contributing financially to her pursuit of a livelihood. I hope you will feel inspired to join me.

To read her initial statement, the investigators' assessments and findings surrounding her allegation, as well as statements of several other survivors that contextualize that of her own, please visit
