Discovering Wisdom, Strength, and Ease

This introductory course will explore how the practice of meditation reveals the innate wisdom of the heart, strength of mind, and a sense of ease.

Through meditation, we address our fears and appreciate that difficulties are not an obstacle. Rather, we find we can bring bravery into everyday life and engage with the world directly from the perspective of nowness. 

There will be meditation instruction by experienced teachers, discussion groups, contemplative exercises, and home practice between classes.

This course covers Shambhala Training Levels I, II, and III.

Mondays, from Sept. 9th – Nov. 4th, 6:30 – 8:30pm

And two Saturdays of immersive meditation practice:

Saturday Oct. 19th : 9am – 1pm 

Saturday Nov. 9th : 9am – 5pm

In-person only at the Durham Shambhala Center.

Register early.  Class size is limited.


Shambhala Training is an experiential path progressing from an introduction to meditation through advanced training.  It  is based on the vision that all beings have a natural source of innate wakefulness that can be discovered, cultivated, and expressed through the practice of meditation.

This path is open to anyone, from any religion or cultural background, who seeks to develop gentleness, confidence, clarity, and strength through meditation. 

The simple and profound technique of mindfulness – awareness meditation can benefit people of any spiritual tradition and way of life.
