Generosity Policy

We invite everyone to engage with the practice of generosity by asking, “How much am I able to give?”  Some times we can be more generous than other times. Sometimes we can stretch and sometimes we cannot. By offering your generosity in whatever measure you can at this time, you join us in offering the Shambhala teachings to the world.

Many of our programs have the option to set your own price by selecting the My Offering payment option. If a program does not have that payment option, we invite you to take advantage of our Generosity Policy. You must contact our program registrar and make arrangements in advance: [email protected] or (503) 278-5816; we cannot arrange Generosity Policy amounts at check-in.

Other ways to support the Portland Shambhala Center:
