Practice and Education Staffing

Public Programs:

You are warmly invited to join us on the path of staffing. It is a wonderful way to support others on the path, and to review and refresh your own understanding of the teachings. You may staff any Way of Shambhala course that you have already taken (In Everyday Life or Basic Goodness series). For Shambhala Training Levels, completion of Level III or beyond is required. Staffing for other public programs is usually open to anyone interested. Contact Nathan Railla ( for more information.
