Shambhala Training Weekend I: Feel Human Again

About us

Open to All

This weekend retreat is designed for those looking to begin Shambhala Training and/or new and returning meditators looking for a venue to explore and deepen mindfulness-awareness meditation.

 

Opening to oneself fully is opening to the world.

- Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche 

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. Our Shambhala teacher will incorporate teachings on awake living into meditation instruction and informative talks. Students leave with the tools they need to bring a mindfulness meditation practice into their daily lives.

Shambhala Training Weekend I includes: 

  • Guided meditation practice

  • Mindfulness meditation talks

  • Optional one-on-one meditation instruction

  • 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.

This comprehensive overview of mindfulness meditation and contemplative living practices presents the view that when we foster a more awake relationship with ourselves and we are creating a more awake and compassionate world.
