Help with the move
You can help in large or small ways. We need boxes! If you have access to any boxes and can bring them by the center at the times listed below. We need all sizes of boxes and crates. Just one or two wine or beer boxes will be helpful. If you can loan a crate to the center we can label it with blue tape and your name, then it will be returned to you after the move. Blue tape, and markers will be above the big sink on the mug shelf. Packing blankets and towels are also needed and can also be labeled. If you can stop by for an hour or two it will make a difference. There will be tasks available to all levels of physical strength. When can you help or drop off boxes?
Please come to the center in North Park (3139 University Ave):
Wednesday Sept. 17: 10 – 8 pm
Thursday Sept. 18: 10 – 8 pm – Moving Day
Friday Sept. 19: 10 – 4 pm – Moving Day
If you can participate on moving day Thursday September 18th please come to the North Park Center between 10 AM and noon or to the Flanders Center (6727 Flanders Drive, Suite 102) between 1:00 and 3:00PM. There will be plenty of light things to move. You need not put your back at risk.
If you have any other resources you can contribute or wish to discuss, please call or text Tracy Mues at 858 361-7212. Texts are preferred but messages will be checked every few hours. (Tracy will be away and out of touch on Saturday and Sunday Sept. 13 – 14th.)
To help raise funds for the renovation and move, we have launched a fundraising campaign for our new space in Sorrento Mesa, which is designed to be uplifting, welcoming and community-based. This fundraising campaign is an opportunity for our Sangha to unite in an uplifting effort that will culminate in arriving at our new Center refreshed and even more engaged in Shambhala Vision. To that end, we ask everyone to join us, participate, and help us take flight! To learn more visit the New Center Campaign website.
We are now up to $10,600 toward our goal of $20,000! The Convocation will occur on the afternoon of Saturday, September 20th, so please save the date. If you have not yet contributed to our Move, please consider giving even a dollar so that you and every Sangha member will have had a hand in this important transition. The Center belongs to all of us!
We have already received many great donations to the new center include folding chairs, office furniture, community room furniture, refrigerator, toaster oven and microwave. We’re continuing to update the Giving Tree with new opportunities for much-needed items. Please browse the Giving Tree tags at the Center and see how you can contribute!
Spark your heart and mind through the practice of meditation.
Shambhala Vision is rooted in the principle that every human being has a fundamental nature of basic goodness. This nature can be developed in daily life so that it radiates out to family, friends, community and society.
