Path of Service

“We are all here on earth to see what we can offer . . . Only through the development of mindfulness—which leads to virtues like kindness and generosity—will we become truly peaceful.” —Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche

The Boulder Shambhala Center relies upon the generous support of our members and friends who volunteer their time to help make our many offerings available to the people of Boulder and beyond. From staffing Shambhala Training Levels, volunteering at cultural events or assuming a Satellite Staff position to serving as a Meditation Instructor or teacher, the Path of Service offers something for everyone and forms an essential part of the Shambhala experience.

Whether you’re a member or just looking to get more involved, here are some of the many ways to join us in our work to make enlightened society possible . . .
