Shambhala Training Level I: The Art of Being Human

with Denise Wuensch & Dhi Good
September 27 / 7:00 PM - September 29 / 1:00 PM

Note: This was rescheduled from the original early August weekend dates.

Shambhala Training is a path of meditation that develops our inherent fearlessness, confidence, openness, and gentleness towards ourselves and our world. Level One includes thorough meditation instruction, practice sessions, and conversation with experienced teachers.

Shambhala Training welcomes people of all religious traditions as well as those who do not follow a particular spiritual path. These workshops are recommended for new and experienced meditators, as well as for those looking to enrich their existing spiritual tradition. 

Level I is open to all - there is no prerequisite.

The Friday night talk is FREE and open to the public. Please feel welcome to attend (you do not need to register in advance). Registration at the door for Saturday will depend on availability.You may learn more about the entire Shambhala Training path here.

A highly recommended conjoined program is Meditation in Everyday Life beginning Tuesdays, October 8th, which is a 5 week course further exploring the practice of meditation and how to integrate mindfulness on a kitchen sink level.
