Volunteering at Portland Shambhala

Get Involved with Portland Shambhala!

Volunteering in Shambhala gives us the opportunity to join mindfulness practice with action.  

The Shambhala teachings invite us to relate with every aspect of our lives — even the most mundane — with creativity and care.  Engaging in a path of service can enrich our individual journey while supporting the vitality and wellbeing of the community.

Many people have felt that volunteering in the practice environment of the center supports bringing awareness into daily life.   It can also be a wonderful way to connect with community!

We invite you to join us in the practice of compassionate action!   

How to Get Involved

There are many ways to get involved. All of our programs, practice sessions, and celebrations are created by our community of volunteers. We welcome you to volunteer in any of these areas on your own, join in with a group or team, or work with the Volunteer Coordinator to form a team. We aspire to building teams, community, and camaraderie, but also welcome people who prefer to work on their own.
