Shambhala Path Meditation Instructor Training I & II

About us

Application Deadline: September 9th, 2018

New Shambhala Educator Path

Shambhala is embarking on a transition from the current roles of Assistant Director and Meditation Instructor to newly envisioned roles on a revised path for working with students that is more aligned with our community in the present and our aspirations for the future. The new roles will be part of an overall path known as the path of the Shambhala Educator. Within the next few months all Assistant Directors and Meditation Instructors will receive communication from Shambhala Office of Practice and Education describing how they can update and upgrade their training through online courses for the new designation as Shambhala Path Meditation Instructors (SPMIs).

This training is generally for Shambhala Guides who want to take the next step along the path of the Shambhala Educator.

Free Retreat Givewaway

We love you. And because we do, we're giving away another free retreat.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

It would my first vacation in the mountains. I think getting away and beginning a new routine would be good for me and a friend. Dianne

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
