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.

Shambhala Training is organized into five weekend programs that include meditation training and practice, talks by senior instructors, personal interviews and group discussions. Levels I-V provide a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation practice, emphasizing the development of genuineness, confidence, humor, and dignity within the complexity of daily life. The programs are recommended for new and experienced meditators, as well as for those looking to enrich their existing spiritual path.

Meals: Coffee will be available in the morning and lunch is included on Saturday  – with vegetarian options.  The group is invited to go out to dinner Saturday night, but it is not required.
