Kalapa Valley in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, has been called “The Heart of Shambhala.” The Scorpion Seal cabin located there is a key retreat site for Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, who has written some important texts there. However, the cabin is on the other side of a river that rises too high at times for the Sakyong and his support staff to cross. The Trust was asked to provide funding towards a sturdy bridge over Peddler’s Brooke that would make access to the cabin possible in all seasons.
Finally there is great concern for the safety of the visitors that are invited to visit Kalapa Valley; the bridge will provide a safe crossing point for all who pilgrimage to the valley.
