Shambhala vision holds that we are inherently and unconditionally worthy. Through hearing and contemplating ancient wisdom teachings and practicing meditation, we can experience and manifest our inherent goodness, and begin to realize our greatest potential as human beings.


Shambhala Training is a way to develop openness, gentleness, fearlessness, and confidence in ourselves and our world in our everyday lives.


In Level One this truth of basic goodness comes alive in our experience. The first in a series of urban weekend retreats, Level One includes instruction and personal guidance in meditation, meditation practice sessions, talks by the director, and opportunities to discuss your experience with others. These workshops are recommended for both new and experienced meditators.


We welcome people of all religious traditions as well as those who do not follow a particular spiritual path. No pre-requisite.


Work-study is available. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds.
To repeat a Weekend: $60.00
