Shambhala Urban Retreat - Waking Up in Philadelphia


with Jonathan Herson & Alexander De Varon
December 26 / 9:00 AM - December 30 / 6:00 PM

Please join us for the Philadelphia Shambhala Center's second Urban Retreat, five days of manifesting enlightened society right here at home.

The retreat will include meditation, talks, guided meditations and contemplative walks.  This program is suitable for all practitioners - beginners through advanced.


The public program will co-exist with the Vajrayana retreat, so it will be a whole community experience.


We end each day at 6 pm to allow participants to spend time with their families.


The only exception will be Friday, 12/28, a full moon when we will be doing the Sadhana of Mahamudra at 7:30 pm to end the day.

You may register for the full program or individual days.

Cost for the entire program: $100

Single day: $25.00

Please register online. If you're planning on coming for one or more days, but not the entire retreat, please indicate which days you will attend in the "comments" section of the registration page.
