During this program, the Sakyong’s instructions for the new Shambhala Meditation will be presented. We will have the opportunity to contemplate portions of the Shambhala Meditation text. We will also deepen our training in meditation instruction and practice the skills of feeling, being, and touching as a structure for our meetings with our meditation students.
