The Art of Being Human

with Bill Brauer
May 1 / 6:30 PM - May 2 / 4:30 PM


Finding bravery in times of confusion, Shambhala Level 1, The Art of Being Human is a wonderful program for new and experienced meditators alike. 

The simple and profound technique of mindfulness and awareness is the basis of a secular path of meditation, which can benefit people of any spiritual tradition and way of life. Shambhala Training is the study and practice of Shambhala warriorship - the tradition of human bravery, kindness, and leadership. This path shows how to take the challenges of daily life in our modern society as opportunities for both contemplative practice and social action. Every Shambhala Training level includes thorough meditation instruction, periods of meditation practice, optional one-on-one meetings with a meditation instructor, talks by a senior teacher, group discussions, and contemplative movement exercises.  

With the guidance of a senior Shambhala teacher and a group of experienced meditation instructors, you will discover that awakening is not about escaping from the world we live in, but instead is about bringing a mindset of wakefulness to every aspect of our lives: work, play, relationships, and more. 

Please register by April 24.  Practitioners who have previously attended Shambhala Level 1 training may attend this program for half-price.
