The Art of Being Human—Weekend Retreat

What students have said:

“Welcoming, non-dogmatic, respectful, non-pressuring.”

“Touched a lot of issues I've been wrestling with.”

“It’s so good.”

Through the practice of meditation, we glimpse unconditional goodness as the ground of our existence. Opening to ourselves with gentleness and appreciation, we begin to see our potential as genuine and compassionate human beings. This workshop is recommended for new and experienced meditators. Level I lays the foundation and is a prerequisite for the four Shambhala trainings that follow.

No prerequisite. Open to all.

Shambhala Training

Shambhala Training is a series of contemplative workshops, suited for both beginning and experienced meditators. The simple and profound technique of mindfulness and awareness is the basis of a secular path of meditation, which can benefit people of any spiritual tradition and way of life.

Shambhala Training is the study and practice of Shambhala warriorship—the tradition of human bravery and leadership. This path shows how to take the challenges of daily life in our modern society as opportunities for both contemplative practice and social action.

The Shambhala Training is inspired by the ancient legend of the Kingdom of Shambhala, said to be a society which drew its gentle and fearless sense of social responsibility from the practice of meditation. The legend of the Kingdom of Shambhala has been a guiding vision for many centuries in Asian culture and has parallels in Western traditions. All aspects of our daily life and society—family, commerce, education, the arts—can be permeated with a sense of sacredness.
