Hospice Volunteer Training offered by Boston Shambhala’s Group

I completed 3 levels of Shambhala Warrior Training, and they were extremely useful for me. I was happy to learn that Shambhala groups offer other trainings and worshops, like this one offered by Shambhala’s Turning the Flower Outward group:

Hospice Volunteer Training begins Thursday February 3rd: 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM.

In our effort to “turn the flower outward” and push the Boston Shambhala Center’s envelope beyond its present limits, Shambhala members interested in reaching out to the greater Boston community are dedicating their merit to those facing life-limiting illnesses. Individually and as a group, our collaboration with hospice volunteering is another step towards sharing our practice, exertion and heart with patients and their families, who are facing a time of major transition fraught with fear and uncertainty. Putting other people before ourselves is a powerful way to cultivate compassion and attract blessings. The power of meditation practice mixed with organized group service for others in need is a potent catalyst towards creating an enlightened society.

Join us for five weeks of hospice training with The Beacon Hospice office in Charlestown, MA.

The Beacon Hospice approach to care creates a patient and family environment of hope, comfort, and dignity. This approach is extended through our volunteers, who can make an enormous difference in someone’s life. Volunteering takes many forms. From working directly with patients at the bedside, to knitting lap blankets, to working in the office…there is something for everyone.

Please join us for this hospice volunteer training, which is scheduled for five consecutive Thursday evenings, February 3rd – March 10th from 6-9pm.  Please feel free to contact Jill Hurley with any questions at

Note: this training will NOT be at the Boston Shambhala Center. Contact Jill Hurley for more information. Email us if you would be interested in another training in the future.
