BSMC Leadership Collective Meeting (Open)

August 2nd

Date details +
    Room: Online

    You are invited to take part in the Leadership Collective, a process of participatory governance at BSMC. The purpose is to uphold the view of basic goodness and awake society, articulate our center’s mission, join center initiatives with the view and mission, and make decisions concerning center direction.

    We will do this by participating in a leadership practice that blends elements of a Quaker Meeting, Social Meditation and the best ingredients of the traditional Shambhala Governing Council model. Meetings are open. Everyone is invited to practice leadership (warriorship) together.

    This is a critical time in the life of our Center and we need all the ideas, perspectives, creativity and spirit that you can bring to the discussion of how to move forward.
    At our meeting on Sunday, August 2 at 1:00 p.m., the main topics for discussion will be:
    The 3 work groups (Shambhala; Nondenominational Dharma; Diversity/Inclusion) will provide updates of their work and we will work to finalize plans for a Center retreat in September.
    2.  FINANCES
    The Steering Team will provide an update on the Center's finances as we navigate the process of clarifying who we want to be as a community.
