Art of Being Human (Shambhala Training Level I)

with Janice Glowski
August 24 / 8:30 AM - August 24 / 5:00 PM

The Art of Being Human is a secular meditation training program that develops fearlessness, confidence, openness and gentleness towards ourselves and our world. These qualities arise out of meditation practice and the study of Shambhala warriorship. The Art of Being Human is the first Shambhala Training program (Level I) in a five program series.  People of all religious traditions, as well as those who do not follow a particular spiritual path, are welcome.

In The Art of Being Human, we will learn to experience the world as sacred and see basic goodness as our birthright. Through the practice of meditation, we glimpse unconditional basic 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.

The program includes meditation instruction, talks, group discussions, guided contemplative practice, and individualized instruction.

Generosity Policy
We have a generosity policy to make our offerings available to all who wish to participate.  If the program price is an obstacle for you, consider what works for your current situation and offer what you can.

For those who can offer more than the program price, we have a "Patron Price."  Your generosity in offering the patron price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price.  Thank you!
