Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche has requested that throughout the Shambhala community this year we emphasize meditation instruction as a focus of our work together. Specifically, he would like us to use this period of time to train and deepen in Shambhala Meditation by studying the text. Additionally, to prepare for the role of meditation instruction in a societal vision, he asks that we further develop skills of listening and inquiry. As he said, our role is “…not to teach the students something, but to help them discover something”.
The Meditation Instructors’ Gathering will include study and contemplation of excerpts of the Shambhala Meditation text, exploring ways the qualities of gentleness, trust, and caring inform our entire approach to meditation (our own practice, as well as teaching meditation to others). Thus, meditation can be understood as an expression of appreciation for oneself, and the qualities of embodiment, relaxation, kindness and confidence can be communicated.
