Living the Teachings, Serving the Journey: The Shambhala Path of Service
with Shastri Janet Solyntjes
- for ALL Directors, MIs, ADs, Guides, Coordinators and Aides and those interested in entering the Path of Service.
“The way that we hold a container for an event in Shambhala expresses something of deep importance to participants about what Shambhala is.”
This program is for all Directors, MIs, ADs, Guides, Coordinators and Aides, who are the protectors and hosts of the container for all Shambhala programs and gatherings. When we practice staffing as a Shambhala person, then we will be successful in enhancing and expanding this sacred space, no matter what the program.
This training will focus on the “view”, practice and details of staffing all Shambhala programs. The day will include talks, discussion, hands-on exercises, and practical advice.
For everyone interested in exploring “The Shambhala Path of Staffing: Living the Teachings, serving the Journey”, we invite you to this training! The Ground, Path and Fruition of Staffing will apply to everyone.
