Viewing of Shambhala Meditation Training Part 1 & Part 2, with Acharya Dale Asrael (streaming video)

December 29 / 5:15 PM - February 2 / 6:30 PM

The fee covers BOTH sessions.  A "heart gift" to Acharya Asrael can be offered at the session.


PREREQUISITE: Authorization as a Meditation Instructor (Additional presentations will be scheduled for ADs and Guides.)


In preparation for the MI Gatherings to be offered in various locations throughout the Shambhala mandala in 2013, Acharya Dale Asrael will be offering two online sessions for MIs in which participants will contemplate and practice some of the main themes from the Shambhala Meditation text. 


These sessions initiate the process of Meditation Instructors studying the Shambhala Meditation text internationally. Acharya Dale Asrael, Dean of Meditation Instructors, will be teaching directly from the unpublished text, emphasizing specific details about the three steps of the practice and their implications for meditation and our life.


Preparatory contemplation for December 29 session is the first line of the Shambhala Meditation text, by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche:  "At this time great confusion and suffering exists because humanity cannot simply be."


Please contemplate this line, exploring the ways you experience it personally in your own life, and also the ways you observe it in others.


All Meditation Instructors are invited to participate in these two sessions. These presentations are especially important for MIs to hear and integrate into personal practice prior to attending one of the Meditation Instructors' Gatherings in 2013.


Participation is with a Center or Group. Individuals may register if their center is not offering a group viewing or if it is impossible for them to attend a group viewing.
