Program Credit Exchange

Staffing a Meditation Program 

The center relies on the volunteer efforts of many who share in the tasks and responsibilities of sustaining it. Volunteering provides a powerful opportunity to practice leadership, support the teachings and fellow practitioners, and deepen one’s connection to the community.

Staffing a program is a fantastic way to get involved and to deepen your meditation practice. Staff will be able to participate in programs free of charge and receive program credit toward a future program or class in exchange for volunteering. Please note, the minimum requirement for staffing Shambhala Training Weekends is completion of Shambhala Training Weekend III, as well as completion of the Weekend you are staffing (if beyond Weekend III).

If you are interested in staffing a program, contact the Shambhala Meditation Center main office with the name of a program and the Registrar will work to place you: or (212) 675-6544.
