Boulder Shambhala Center Satellite Staff

The satellite staff is a core group of volunteers who serve the Boulder Shambhala Center for six months at a time in contracted positions. They work several hours a week in important roles that support the full and part time Center staff. In return they receive some program merit as well as the opportunity to practice through their path of service.

All Satellite Staff must be graduates of Way of Shambhala Level III and are members of the Boulder Shambhala Center.

If you are interested in joining the satellite staff now or in the future, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator,
