Shambhala Code of Conduct

Portland Shambhala Center Aspiration and Commitment

At the Shambhala Meditation Centre of Portland, we strive to provide a safe, supportive and respectful environment for the practice and study of the Buddhist and Shambhala teachings and meditation. We applaud and fully support all of our new Code of Conduct policies which can be found at the Code of Conduct Hub.

Please familiarize yourself with these policies and resources. Creating a safe space is everyone’s responsibility. This means being mindful of one’s own conduct and watchful for any impropriety outlined in our policies.

We remain committed to supporting anyone interested in the practice of meditation, the study of Buddhism, and the development of a community that embodies the principles of a genuinely enlightened and compassionate society.

Our centre offers a rich array of weekly ongoing offerings free to the public. No prior meditation experience is required to attend. Most programs offer meditation instruction upon request. All are welcome. Visit our monthly calendar for a full listing of programs.

If you have a concern about something you have experienced in Shambhala, please read “What to do if you have a concern”. If you have experienced harm due to aggression, failings on the part of the organization, or actions within the Shambhala community, you are invited to access the counseling and therapy offering.
