Way of Shambhala - Shambhala Training Level I


with Mark Hazell
January 5 / 8:30 AM - January 6 / 1:00 PM

Registration for this weekend retreat is now closed.


Through the practice of meditation, we begin to glimpse that goodness—rather than confusion—is the unconditional ground of our existence. Opening to ourselves with gentleness and appreciation, we begin to see our potential as genuine and compassionate human beings.


This first weekend retreat of the Way of Shambhala path of training introduces the practice of meditation and the basic principles of the Shambhala teachings. The retreat includes meditation instruction and practice, talks, group discussion, and individual interviews. It pairs well with the course Meditation in Everyday Life.


Prerequisite: Open to the public. (Note: Shambhala Training Level I is prerequisite for Level II.)


Schedule: Saturday, January 5, 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM; and Sunday, January 6, 8:30 AM – 1:00 PM


Suggested reading: Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior, by Chogyam Trungpa. This book is available for purchase in the Victoria Shambhala Centre’s bookstore.


Suggested price: $85.00. Generosity Policy applies.
