The Process Team is a group of volunteers from throughout the community who are responsible for leading Shambhala forward during a time of organizational, ethical, and financial crisis. The work of the PT is evolving as a unique creative process of listening, exploration, and resolution.
Enriched by the valuable input from people both inside and outside of Shambhala, the Process Team will engage the community in a process of community healing, culture change, and a shift in governance structures relevant for Shambhala in these times and for the future.
The Process Team is charged with creating a path to freshness, trust, and transparency for Shambhala as a worldwide organization that adheres to the vision of Shambhala and the Shambhala teachings, including Mahayana and Vajrayana buddhadharma.
