Code of Conduct Hub
Welcome to the Hub for the Shambhala Code of Conduct
As per the Shambhala Board Resolution, the new Code of Conduct is in effect on Shambhala Day 2021. Following a phased approach, the International Care and Conduct Panel will serve on an interim basis as the panel (equivalent to the international Council) as a way to support the transition to the new Code of Conduct. Access a description of the phased implementation here.
Shambhala Vision tells us that we can experience a natural source of radiance and brilliance in the world, which is the innate wakefulness of human beings. From this wakefulness it is possible to create what the Shambhala tradition calls “enlightened society.” The Code of Conduct is intended as a mirror to support behavior that reflects our innate wakefulness.
The Code of Conduct Hub is a place to find the Shambhala Code of Conduct Policies and Process. It contains a variety of information and resources about how the Code is implemented in Shambhala.

The Shambhala Code of Conduct consists of the Code of Conduct and four Policy Documents.
These policies outline a Path of Good Conduct, and several categories of misconduct. Learn more about the policies and supporting documents.
The procedures and infrastructure, a critically important part of the Code of Conduct, are still in the process of being finalized and put in place. The Code is to be effective on Shambhala Day, February 12, 2021.
Learn more about the process once it’s completed.
