During it's 33-year run, Man Alive examined issues of faith, morality, and contemporary life. This episode from 1995 and hosted by Arthur Kent, profiles the Shambhala Buddist community in Halifax, NS. In the 1980s, five hundred ambitious young Americans picked up and moved to slow-paced, traditional Halifax at the request of their Guru, a controversial Tibetan named Trungpa Rimpoche. Trungpa drank and smoked, led an unapologetically promiscuous lifestyle and died in the nineties with a note of scandal. The Shambhala community have become an integral part of their adopted home.
