About this Program
Shambhala Training Weekend I: Feel Human Again is the first weekend retreat in Shambhala Training. This mindfulness meditation retreat weekend presents the view that human beings, at their core, are fundamentally awake.
Through the practice of sitting and walking meditation, we will remember our natural confidence and relax to the freshness of the present moment, no matter what that moment may bring.
With the guidance of a senior Shambhala teacher and a group of experienced meditation instructors, we'll 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.
About Weekend I
Shambhala Training Weekend I is designed for new meditators or those looking to reconnect with meditation practice.

Concluding Sunday reception
Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior by Chögyam Trungpa
About Shambhala Training
Shambhala Training offers a structured path of meditation and emotional intelligence education rooted in the ancient wisdom of the Shambhala tradition and created for the challenges of modern, everyday existence.
The Shambhala Training path consists of weekly classes and weekend retreats suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators, and open to people of any spiritual tradition.
