The governance and day-to-day administration at SWZC is organized through member collaboration in 'circles.'
These circles are organized by the Three Treasures: The Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. The Buddha Circles represent the practice and training aspects of the center. The Dharma Circles represent the administrative and operational aspects of the center. The Sangha Circle is embodied by the SWZC community that animates the harmony and unity of the Buddha and Dharma Circles.
Stewardship within the SWZC circle structure consists in facilitating the processes of each circle. The steward of each circle acts as an empowering agent, to encourage all its members to participate in fulfilling the circle’s charge. To that end, another important element of circle stewardship is training the next steward.
