This Week in Shambhala
July 31, 2015

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






The Brunswick Shambhala Center Shrine Room is being professionally cleaned by ServPro Cleaning Service on Monday, August 3,2015. All the items in the shrine room must be removed prior to that date. The items must then be returned to the shrine room once the cleaning is completed.

We are planning to remove the items out of the shrine room on Sunday, August 2nd, immediately following Sunday Morning Meditation and then return the items to the shrine room on Tuesday morning August 4th.

If you are available to assist in this project please contact Walter Chop, our facilities coordinator at:

Thank you in advance for your consideration and availability. The more hands to help, the lighter the work load will be.
