Please join us for a survey of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche's earliest Western writings from Meditation in Action, Mudra, and the Garuda series among others. Discover (or rediscover) Buddhadharma without credentials, dharmas without blame, manure on the field of bodhi, the original article on spiritual materialism, commentary on the Zen Oxherding pictures, and talks to the early community. 

In line with Trungpa Rinpoche's emphasis on a balance between study and practice, each session will include a period of sitting practice and a period of open contemplative discussion. Sessions will be about an hour long, to fit into busy schedules, and each is a stand-alone discussion, so please drop in as you like.

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.
