Shambhala Training Level I: The Art of Being Human (For Parents)


with Deborah Hoskins & Steve Hoskins
January 11 / 7:00 PM - January 12 / 6:00 PM

Free Public Talk, Friday, January 11th, 7:00 p.m.


This Level I program is open to parents only. It doesn't matter what age your children are: if you are a parent, you are most welcome to attend.  The training is designed to help facilitate the busy lives of parents who might be able to fit a one day program into their weekend schedule but not two. The talks will focus on how the Level I teachings apply to being a parent.


We are not providing childcare, but it is hoped that parents of younger children would only need to find a baby sitter for the one day and could attend together so that each would benefit.


The one-day program is a complete Level I training. Participants will be eligible to go on to a Level II program whenever they have the opportunity.


Shambhala Training Level I participants are introduced to basic goodness and the practice of meditation in a supportive, social environment. The day includes talks by the director, group meditation practice, discussion, and individual meetings with meditation instructors.


Price: $100; $75 for full-time students with student ID; $25 for repeaters. Scholarships are available; no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Please refer to our Generosity Policy at this location.
