Shambhala Training is a sequence of weekend programs suitable for anyone interested in exploring meditation as a means to develop fearlessness, confidence, openness, and gentleness toward ourselves and our world.

Each program involves the study and practice of Shambhala warriorship—a path of nonaggression born from the willingness to meet our world without bias or judgment. This path shows how to take the challenges of everyday life as opportunities for both contemplative practice and social action.

In Shambhala Training Level I: The Art of Being Human we glimpse unconditional goodness as the ground of our existence through the practice of meditation. As we open to ourselves with gentleness and appreciation, we begin to see our potential as genuine and compassionate human beings.

Every Shambhala Training level includes thorough meditation instruction, periods of meditation practice, one-on-one meetings to clarify questions, talks by a senior teacher, group discussions and a concluding reception.

Friday night includes a community talk.  Please join us - no registration for Friday night is necessary.

This program is open to everyone. There are no prerequisites required.

*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, please consider what works for you in your current situation, and offer as much of the program fee as you can.

For those who can offer more than the program price, your generosity will help to cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price.
