Legal and Financial


Before entering into contracts for the purchase or financing of real estate, please contact Mr Alex Halpern, Chief Legal Counsel to the Shambhala Mandala, to review and approve legal documents and answer questions.
It is advisable to use local legal counsel as well.

In general your local Chagdzo, or the Chagdzo Kyi Khyap can be seen as a Centre’s primary source of financial advice in matters of relocation, expansion, or development of a Centre’s facilities.  Beyond that it should be clear that any real-estate transactions or major investments by a Centre need to be reviewed and approved by the Chagdzo Kyi Khyap, Ms. Connie Brock.  With that in mind, Centre leadership is encouraged to get in touch with Ms. Brock if you are seriously considering any major renovations to your facilities, or have any plans to relocate your Centre.

Ms Brock is available by email:  [email protected]
