Sunday Open House is one of the cornerstones of what the Berkeley Shambhala Center offers. For many years, a dedicated group of discussion leaders, meditation instructors, team captains, and staff have created this weekly offering. However, members have expressed a desire for changes that will allow Sundays to better reflect the needs of volunteers and participants alike. We have created some proposals of what a revised Sunday public offering could look like, which we would like to discuss at this meeting. Please join us to learn more about the proposed revisions.
