Oath Ceremony and Luncheon for Mr. James Murphy (Orange County)

November 3rd

Date details +
    Room: ORANGE COUNTY SHAMBHALA @ 2750 Harbor Blvd, Suite B03, Costa Mesa, 92626
    Please join us for this special occasion as we welcome Mr. James Murphy as the new center coordinator for Orange County Shambhala.  
    James Murphy’s interest in Shambhala began after visiting the Great Stupa Of Dharmakaya at SMC in 2007. He started attending regular public sittings shortly after moving to OC in 2011 and completed Shambhala Level I for the first time later that year. He was a participant at the 2019 Warrior Assembly in Dorje Denma Ling in Nova Scotia, CA. He currently helps staff programs and events locally and is also involved with the OC Kado / Ikebana group under Elayne Rail’s direction.
    Former center coordinator Sepi Tabai will also formally take her retirement oath. We wish to thank both Sepi and James for their enduring and committed service to Shambhala. We will also be thanking Elayne Rail who is retiring as the SMCLA Kado Coordinator.  Please join us for this celebration which will also feature a luncheon after the oath ceremonies. If you plan to attend, please register below.

    The Shambhala Center of Los Angeles remains open because of the ongoing generosity of our community. One of the cornerstones of our policy is that no one be turned away for lack of funds. If you can’t afford a program, please call our office (323-255-5472) to register based on what you can afford. At the same time, the Center relies on program revenue to cover costs. For those who are able to pay more than the program price, your generosity in paying the Patron Price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price, and provides additional support to the Shambhala Center of Los Angeles. Thank you for your kindness!

    If you cancel more than 7 days prior to your class (and have already paid), you will receive a full refund less a processing fee of $15. If you cancel between 1 to 7 days prior to arrival, we will credit your payment towards another program at Shambhala Los Angeles to be used within 1 year. No refunds or credits are issued for cancellations received fewer than 24 hours prior to arrival.
