One of the main themes that the 170 delegates addressed was the issue of “factionalism and inclusiveness.” They discussed how to accommodate a diversity of teachers and traditions within the mandala of Shambhala; how to ensure that the legacy of Chögyam Trunpga Rinpoche is not lost, while remaining open to change; and how to invite and work with an increasingly diverse mix of cultures and social groups.

A charter member of the Biofeedback Society of America, Wortz also founded the Neuro-Development Center in Los Angeles, which specializes in the treatment of learning disabil- ities in children and adults. He is survived by his wife, Karen Comegys-Wortz, daughters Margaret Wortz and Kathyrn Wortz, and his grandchildren. ■ JoTiPalo Bhikkhu began a peace walk from New Orleans on March 1, destined for Thun- der Bay, Ontario. Also known as Don Sperry, Jotipalo is a resident of Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery in Redwood Valley, California. He says the walk is a “physical demonstration of renunciation and a return to simpler values.” Austin Stewart, a layperson from Gunnison, Colorado, is accompanying Jotipalo on the pilgrimage and handling any money used. The duo is expected to finish before August 20 and are dedicating any merit generated by the prac- tice to peace for all beings.
