(Oct) Shambhala Training Level I: The Art of Being Human
with Ethan Nichtern
October 11 / 7:00 PM - October 13 / 1:00 PM
What recent students have said:
"Welcoming, non-dogmatic, respectful, non-pressuring."
"Touched a lot of issues I've been wrestling with."
"It's so good."
This introductory weekend intensive explores and deepens the basic technique of mindfulness meditation. By settling our minds we begin to see the magic of the world beyond our habitual filters. We experience the power and fulfillment of resting in the present.
In addition to meditation practice, each weekend includes talks by one or more of our senior instructors, one-on-one and group meditation instruction and discussions, and opportunities to socialize and make new friends with fellow participants.
You can register for just the Friday night public talk for only $20 for an introduction to Shambhala Training.
