    October 13 2019 Community Meeting Agenda

    Introduction to our Provisional Format

    We will be gathering in the Main Shrine Room and sitting in two concentric circles.  The center circle will be seats for representatives of groups, tasks, or jobs held at the center.  The larger circle is the open sitting for all interested parties to attend the community meeting but are not a specific representative of any particular group or program.  For space reasons - only one representative from any group is able to sit in the center circle.  Those in the larger circle are able to still suggest agenda items and note their intent or desire to speak at the meeting by informing the facilitator.  This is a provisional format and following the experience of this new way, we will take feedback to inform how we continue or modify future meetings.

    The center circle will have a representative from: facilitator, director, administrator, administrator - minutes taker, People of Color Group, Families and Children, Heart of Recovery, Social Meditation, White Awake Group, LGBTQ+/Queer Dharma, Societal Health and Well-Being, Practice and Education, Kasung, Finance, Ikebana, Vajrayana, Team Magic, Shrine Care, Bookstore, Culture and Decorum

    The Larger Circle which represents the Community is for ALL: Members, Shastris, Shambhala Educators, Non-Members, Friends and Family
