About the Teacher
Acharya Eric Spiegel grew up on Manhattan's Lower East Side in a lefty family that he describes as "fundamentalist atheists." In 1971 he met and became a student of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. He has worked in the financial sector for decades and in 2002 he left Wall Street to devote more time to teaching. The following year, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche appointed him an Acharya, which means "senior teacher." He is the Acharya for the New York Shambhala Community and teaches and has students in NYC, around the US, and internationally. He has worked extensively with people facing death and with issues related to death and dying. He also works and teaches within the Shambhala tradition on developing a more awakened attitude toward wealth and money.Source: ny.shambhala.org
