Shambhala Training Level 1 - The Art of Being Human


with Shelley Heinz
May 4 / 8:30 AM - May 5 / 1:00 PM

In Shambhala Training the ancient wisdom of Shambhala comes alive in our daily life. Level 1 will open our eyes, hearts, and minds to our own basic goodness and the sacredness of life.


This program is the first in a series of weekend seminars that provides an open and friendly environment to discover knowing how to live with a clear mind, a gentle heart and a sense of humor through the practice of meditation. The weekend includes an introduction to sitting meditation practice, talks by a director, individual meetings with a meditation instructor, group discussion, and a concluding reception. We welcome people of all religious traditions as well as those who do not follow a particular spiritual path.


These workshops are recommended for new and experienced meditators, with an emphasis on applying the wisdom of meditation to our everyday lives.
