      1:00 PM to 4:30 PM - Coordinator Training
      You are cordially invited to staff and coordinator training on Saturday, January 11th. Staffing is an opportunity to hold the practice container for others. We'll cover the overall view and move through the tasks of staffing including water service, shrine keeping, program umdze, kitchen assignments and general decorum around the center.
      Training will begin at 9:30 AM. We'll celebrate with pizza at 12:30.
      Those who are brand new to staffing and those already staffing are welcome all day. Those already staffing and/or coordinating are highly encouraged to stay for the afternoon when we will go into more depth about coordinating and the overall view of orchestrating an uplifted and relaxed program.
      We are a volunteer organization and welcome everyone as staff and coordinators. We need you. To staff a non-Shambhala program (e.g. Buddhist or Dharma talk, seasonal celebrations, special weekends, practice evenings, Sunday tea, etc.) there is no prerequisite; we welcome all to volunteer to staff these programs!
      To staff a Way of Shambhala program (Levels I-V and beyond) one needs to have completed Shambhala
      Training Level III or the program being held, whichever is higher.
