    Room: Online Program

    Missing your favorite museum, concert hall, film art theatre/creative chats with friends at your favorite coffee hangout?

    Wanting support for your own creative play?   

    Beginning In May the Berkeley Shambhala Center will be offering From the Ground Up, a monthly gathering spot to create and share your art, music, movement, writing, stamp collection and creative energy with others.  It will also be an opportunity to come together in support of the creative spirit in all of us during this difficult time.  No artistic experience or practice is needed to participate, only an open heart and endless curiosity. 

    We will be open with a short meditation and spark of inspiration followed by an open play period and time for sharing.   

    The first meeting will be Thursday, May 14th from  7 to  8:30 PM.

    For further information you can contact:
    Robert Fox: education [at] berkeleyshambhala [dot] org. 

    The evenings will be free but donations to the center are always welcome.

    Program Policy
    Our program policy has changed to reflect the current situation with online programs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Registration
    Please register and pay online in advance of the program to make certain you receive all communications including the link for the program. Our online payment system is set up to accept payment through PayPal.

    Generosity Policy
    The Berkeley Shambhala Center is funded solely by your membership and program donations. Thank you for your generosity as you consider what you can pay for each program at our Center. We strive to price our programs in a way that accurately reflects the financial need of our Center and the cost to us of producing the program.

    We are committed to offering our programs to everyone, regardless of their financial situation. Most programs include a base program price as well as a sliding scale.

    If you need to reach a member of the Shambhala Center Staff, email manager [at] berkeleyshambhala [dot] org with your inquiry.

    What is the Patron Price?
    The other aspect of our Generosity Policy is our Patron Price. Those who are able to offer more than the regular program price can select the Patron Price option. By selecting this option, your generosity is helping to cover the costs of those who may not be able to pay the full price of the program. Thank you for your consideration, and for helping all to receive the treasure of the Shambhala Dharma.

    We appreciate you registering and paying online. This helps us not only to plan for the program, but speeds up the registration line on the day of the program.

    Work Study
    We depend on volunteers to make all of our programs happen. If you are interested in offering your support in this way, please contact manager [at] berkeleyshambhala [dot] org. We would be very grateful. Please note that we have limited work-study options for online programs.

    Refund Policy
    If you are unable to attend a program for which you have pre-registered and paid, and contact us to cancel participation at least one week (7 calendar days) prior to the start of the program, you are entitled to either receive a refund less the cost of processing the payment, or you can apply the full payment amount to the cost of an upcoming program of your choice.

    If you cancel your participation within the week prior to the program, you can apply those funds to another upcoming program of your choice.

    No refunds will be given for cancellations after a program has begun.

    Non Discrimination
    The Berkeley Shambhala Center is open to everyone, and does not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, height, weight, physical or mental ability, veteran status, military obligations, and marital status.
