Note: participants are asked to please not attend more than one Scorpion Seal Assembly per year.

It is not necessary to apply to the Shambhala Office of Practice and Education in order to attend a second year Scorpion Seal assembly. The practice centre will verify that you have attended Scorpion Seal Assembly Year 7 when you register


Staffing a programme represents a unique opportunity to deepen one’s practice, discover or revisit teachings, while helping to make the dharma available to others.

Staffing a Scorpion Seal Assembly can thus be an incredibly rewarding and rich experience. However it requires an important engagement. If you are interested in taking a staffing role in this assembly, please email Joanna Francis at [email protected]
