This Week in Shambhala
August 6, 2015

Community is part of our practice.
Join us in the exploration and practice of community.


The Brunswick Shambhala Center Shrine Room was professionally cleaned by ServPro Cleaning Service on Monday, August 3,2015. After the cleaning we realized that we would need to paint as well.  This week we taped and primed all the walls. On August 12th, next Wednesday we will be painting the walls in the morning.
If you are available to assist in this project please contact Kathy Bither at [email protected].

Thank you in advance for your participation.
