Community Celebration

December 15th (2018)

Date details +
    Room: Main Shrine Room

    Join us in a celebration of the strength of our community and seasonal magic!
    This fall we found ourselves close to losing our space due to constricted finances. But, the community pulled through and…you did it! Your support, inspiration, generosity, and confidence will continue benefiting the community in our beautiful space! The center will not need to consider exiting its lease early!

    Almost 20 of you increased your regular offering, and there are 15 new monthly financial contributions to the center, half from new community members, and the other half from community members coming back to contribute again.

    What is needed for our celebration on Saturday, December 15th is a group of inspired folks to offer ideas and energy. This celebration will be anything from a simple get-together to be with each other, to a decorated, food-and-drink abundant, dance party! We need your help with inspiration!

    We are starting early in the evening to make it a family-friendly event. So, bring your young'uns.

    We Need Your Help
    Please contact Kelsey, centermanager [at] sfshambhala [dot] org, with your ideas and energy to get this party off the ground.

    We will update this page with more details, including what to bring, as the plan unfolds.

    There is no cost to attend. And, donations are always appreciated.





    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.

    Generosity Policy
    The San Francisco 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. If you are unable to meet any of our listed pricing tiers please contact us to discuss your current needs. In addition to offering scholarship pricing for those in need, we also offer the option of paying for some programs in installments.

    In order to request use of the Generosity Policy, please contact the person listing under the program’s contact information, or email: info [at] sfshambhala [dot] org, at least one week prior to the program you wish to attend.

    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.

    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 We would be very grateful.
