Karmê Chöling is seeking a new Director
Karmê Chöling is poised to enter the next phase of manifesting Shambhala. The Sakyong has clearly expressed his wish that the current direction of Karmê Chöling be continued.
Moving forward, the next Director will lead the staff in the development of new initiatives, events, and activities that will create more opportunities for connecting and collaborating with people beyond the confines of Shambhala itself. The Sakyong’s next book, The Shambhala Principle, “focuses around a profound transmission: humanity and society are basically good.” We are seeking a Director who can continue to provide leadership and inspiration in this direction and who will dedicate themselves to providing a place for nurturing personal and societal transformation.
If you are interested in the position or know of someone you would recommend, please review the detailed job description.
