"The first principle of Shambhala vision is not being afraid of who you are"

Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche


The Art of Being Human introduces a very personal exploration of our innate human dignity and basic goodness.


This first level focuses on the basic technique of mindfulness-awareness meditation. By settling the mind, we begin to experience the brilliance of the world beyond our habitual patterns and conceptual filters, the quality of basic goodness we can neither create nor destroy. Through the practice of meditation, we glimpse unconditional goodness as the ground of our existence. Opening to ourselves with gentleness and appreciation, we begin to see our potential as genuine and compassionate human beings
