The Way of Shambhala
The Way of Shambhala is a complete training in authentic meditation practices and teachings. This series of courses and weekend retreats (Shambhala Training) is an experiential overview of meditation practices, wisdom teachings, contemplative arts, and physical disciplines rooted in the ancient traditions of Shambhala and Vajrayana Buddhism.
The full program is comprised of four modules of practice and study opportunities –
- The Everyday Life Series of courses
- Shambhala Training weekend retreats
- The Basic Goodness Series of courses
- The Sacred Path weekend retreats. (advanced Shambhala Training retreats)
The courses are weekly, interactive, communal, and create a learning environment where the teachings are intimate and relevant. We train in meditation, and use inquiry, dialogue, and contemplative arts throughout the classes.
The weekend retreats are opportunities to deepen one’s practice of meditation in a powerful environment that meets the needs of a work-week and family life. Rather than having to go away for meditation experience, we provide this training in local communities.
Within each module, the courses or weekend retreats are designed to be taken sequentially. For example, within the Shambhala Training weekend retreats, participants progress from level I through Level V in sequence. You may begin with any of the first three modules listed above.
All are welcome to participate. The Way of Shambhala is open to people of all religious backgrounds or no religious background. It is recommended for new and experienced meditators, as well as those looking to enrich their personal spiritual path and social action in the world.
