Shambhala City Online Weekthun


with Jerry Webster
July 25 / 9:00 AM - July 31 / 6:00 PM

Open to All!


A weekthün is a week-long meditation retreat based on the understanding that meditation is always experienced in a social context and that our path is tremendously supported by an awake and kind environment. This online retreat will join the practices of Shambhala meditation and shamatha, or mindfulness meditation, with an emphasis on using the retreat container as a basis for generating loving kindness and compassion. We will use every part of our day—including eating together, meditating together, individual meditation instruction and daily teachings, all conducted online—to support each other on our paths. Please join us for this precious opportunity to engage in the practice of meditation.


This urban weekthun is a unique opportunity to deepen one's meditation practice with others, within our own home. New and experienced meditators are welcome.


Participants are welcome to join for all or part of the online weekthun.


Prerequisite: none - everyone is welcome

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 email the Registrar at [email protected] before the program. We cannot accept Generosity Policy registrations on the day of the event, so please make arrangements in advance.
