Program Details

Shambhala Meditation Weekthun

with Linda Catling
December 26 / 9:00 AM - January 1 / 6:30 PM

Shambhala Meditation was introduced by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche to help us connect more deeply with our inherent worthiness and the experience of basic goodness. Weekthun participants will practice Shambhala Meditation along with sitting meditation. 

The Sakyong has asked that Shambhala Meditation be presented within a particularly strong practice container. For this reason participants are asked to commit to the full retreat. We will not be able to accommodate part-time participation in the Weekthun.***

NOTE: If you are undecided please come on the first day,  December 26th. At the end of the day you can decide if you want to continue.

The Weekthun will include meditation practice, dharma talks and the study of the Shambhala Principle by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche.  We'll be practicing silence for most of the retreat and everyone will participate in a short work period. Please plan to bring your lunch and eat together in the Shrine Room.


The program counts as one week of a dathun, fulfilling the weekthun requirement for Enlightened Society Assembly and other advanced programs.


For more information, please contact Eric Laufe, Director of Practice and Education, p&


*** If you won't be participating in the Weekthun, but would like to meditate during the week, please e-mail p& If there's interest, we will set up another practice space.


No one will be turned away because of lack of funds.
