Shambhala City Mindfulness Retreat

with Jerry Webster
July 27 / 9:00 AM - July 30 / 6:00 PM

Open to All

This retreat will join the practices of Shambhala meditation and mindfulness meditation (shamatha), with an emphasis on using the retreat container as a basis for generating loving kindness. We will use every part of our day—including eating together, meditating together, individual meditation instruction and daily teachings—to support each other on our path of mindfulness. Join us for this precious opportunity to engage in the practice of meditation.

This urban retreat is a unique opportunity to deepen one's meditation practice without going far from home. New and experienced meditators are welcome.

Participants are welcome to join for all or part of the 4-day session. Should space become an issue, registration preference will be given to those who are participating in the entire program.

Prerequisite: none - everyone is welcome

Register and pre-pay early to secure your spot.

Daily rates: (Patron) | (Sustaining) | (Subsidized)


Patron Price: Please register with the Patron Price if you are able. By offering a little more, you help make programs accessible to participants with less financial means. Thank you!

Sustaining Price: This price is the amount per participant required for the Shambhala Center to cover the costs of the program.

Subsidized Price: This price allows people with less financial means to attend programs at a discounted rate, supported by the contributions at the ‘Patron Price’ level.

Generosity Policy: Our Generosity Policy is an option for participants in unique situations for whom none of the above options are appropriate, and helps make programming available to all those who wish to participate. If the subsidized rate is prohibitive for you, the Generosity Policy allows you to offer as much of the fee as you can based on your individual circumstances. Please consider the value of the program and practice generosity at the level appropriate for you. To utilize the Generosity Policy, please contact our Head of Finance at [email protected] before the program. We cannot accept Generosity Policy registrations at the door, so please make arrangements in advance.
