Betsy Pond

Shastri Betsy Pond is a senior teacher whose involvement with Shambhala began in 1990 when she began looking for meditation teachings and found a small group that met in a boxcar in San Antonio. Her 35 years as a psychotherapist provided extensive experience as a clinician, leading groups and providing talks and teachings in professional and educational settings. These experiences became a strong basis for bringing the Shambhala teachings into real life. Betsy is a student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and in 2010 was invited to fill the role of Shastri in San Antonio. Betsy teaches meditation and leads programs on the inherent goodness and sanity, wisdom and decency of humanity and society as presented in the Shambhala Buddhist teachings.
