CANCELLED - The Way of Shambhala Level 1: Discovering Basic Goodness

June 21 / 7:30 PM - June 23 / 5:00 PM

“There is a natural source of radiance and brilliance in the world which is the innate wakefulness of human beings – if we open our eyes, if we open our minds, if we open our hearts, we will find that the world is a magical place”,  “Shambhala – Sacred Path of the Warrior”, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche


The Way of Shambhala


The Way of Shambhala offers a structured path of meditation and complete introduction to the foundations of Shambhala Buddhism.  Suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators, and open to people of any spiritual tradition, this series of weekends and classes provide a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation practice, wisdom teachings, and physical practices rooted in the ancient traditions of Shambhala and Tibetan Buddhism.

This first weekend workshop is entitled Discovering Basic Goodness (also known as The Art of Being Human). 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.


The weekend will consist of thorough instruction in meditation, the practice of sitting and walking meditation in a group setting, one-on-one interviews to clarify questions, discussion groups and talks by senior teacher Jane Hope.

Shastri Jane Hope was a student of Trungpa Rinpoche and a founder member of the London Shambhala Meditation Centre. She has been appointed by the Sakyong as a ‘Shastri’ (senior teacher) for the UK and the Ukraine.



The cost for the programme is £125 and includes lunch on Saturday and Sunday.  A deposit of £40 is required to secure your place.  There is an Early Bird option of £110 if you pay in full before 14th June.   Concessions are also available, please ask.
