We Have A New Director!!!


The Director Search Committee and Governing Council of Pittsburgh Shambhala Meditation Center are pleased to announce that Jessica Heathcote has accepted the role of Center Director. She will officially assume the role September 1, 2018.

Jessica has been practicing meditation with Shambhala Pittsburgh since 2012, and has served as our Volunteer Coordinator since 2016. She is also trained as a Shambhala Guide, has staffed or coordinated numerous Center programs, and has been an integral voice in recent discussions informing Community Care.

In late summer Jessica is attending her first Shambhala Warrior Assembly at Karme Choling in Barnet, Vermont.

Jessica’s wisdom, heart, and humor are a welcome and well-deserved addition to the PSMC Governing Council, especially as our whole Center works together through emerging forms of governance and community determination.

Please offer Jess a deep warrior’s bow in her new role!
