April 9, 2020: Maine Sangha News

Dear Maine Sangha,

As we partner with the world-wide community in working to slow down the spread of COVID-19, the Maine Shambhala Center in Brunswick, Maine is closed for now. We are monitoring communications from the CDC and the State of Maine and will be making periodic updates as the situation evolves.

As the COVID-19 virus situation continues to develop, we would like to share what we are doing locally to help protect, support and care for our community. While the physical center is closed, our community continues to be at the core of all that we do. In order to care for each other, we are offering a variety of ways to stay connected.

To provide support for the Shambhala and larger community, we have been actively working to transition events online, and to create new programming approaches for this time. With the power of virtual options such as Zoom, we are able to keep us connected for practice, study, and gathering. IIf you are looking for ways to connect with the community, please check the website, as well as your emails, for updates on events. Let us use this time to come together and to keep our connections strong and meaningful.

Please join us online!
