Shambhala Global Services…Needs YOU (or someone you know)

In my new position as Director of Operations for Shambhala Global Services (SGS), I’m learning a lot about SGS and finding that many Shambhalians don’t know who we are or what we do. I’m also looking to fill a critical open position and so, for both reasons, I’m reaching out to all of you.

Basically, what most of us call “Shambhala International” is really Shambhala Global Services. SGS is Shambhala’s executive body, providing the organization’s database/website, Practice and Education, communications, translation and financial services. SGS also includes Shambhala Online, Community Care and Conduct, Kalapa Publications, The Shambhala Times, and liaisons to the Dorje Kasung and Shambhala Europe. Shambhala is a registered non-profit in multiple countries and the Shambhala Board is its governing body. My primary responsibility as Director of Operations is to provide SGS Staff with the resources they need to be responsive, caring and effective in their work with our community members and leaders.

In addition to providing functional support to land and city centres and groups, SGS staff advises the Board in its work to lead Shambhala forward. Obviously this is a critical time for Shambhala, beyond the pandemic and its impact on our collective health and financial strength, to discern what common ground we have – amid tremendously diverse perspectives – and to protect what is most essential in presenting the Shambhala teachings for this and future generations.

Right now, in support of this work, we are seeking a Director of Governance and Leadership. Continue…
