March 1st through May 31st
Rites of Passage is open to all children from any tradition; there are no requirements other than being 8 to 12 years old.
Children of this age are going through a developmental stage in which they are becoming more self-aware and confident. They are becoming more independent human beings, and Shambhala celebrates this natural part of growing up.
In this age of endless gadgets, distractions and speed, these classes give children an opportunity to slow down and feel their own basic goodness through learning new skills and making new friendships.
Each class gives children mindful practices that they can connect with now and practice into the future.

The art of leadership and creating brilliant environments that communicate sanity, dignity and decorum
We will focus on the principles of creating beautiful uplifting environments and a wakeful atmosphere as a powerful transmission of open mind and heart. We will draw on the richness of Shambhala culture and decorum.
This daylong Leadership program is also a staff and coordinator training. Our focus on creating Shambhala environments can be applied to our centers, our communities and workplaces.
How we lead our lives in households and in families, at work and at play, publicly and privately, affects the health of an entire society. Join with leaders in Shambhala to explore our mutual commitment to creating a more sane society through principles of universal leadership.
