Shambhala Training Level I: The Art of Being Human

with Michael Stephens
April 26 / 7:00 PM - April 28 / 2:00 PM

Shambhala Training Level I: The Art of Being Human marks the beginning of the Shambhala Training path which teaches students of any tradition effective tools for meditation. This first level focuses on the basic technique of mindfulness meditation. By settling our minds, we begin to see the magic of the world beyond our habitual filters, and experience the quality of basic goodness which can neither be created nor destroyed.

Generosity Policy:  Our intent is to share the Shambhala Buddhist teachings with all who are interested, regardless of financial considerations. As a result we have adopted a pay-what-you-can policy as an option for people being introduced to our sangha through introductory programs (through Way of Shambhala Year One), as well as for those who are supporting the Pioneer Valley Shambhala Center as members.
