The Heart of Warriorship

Shambhala Training is organized into five weekend workshops that include meditation training and practice, talks by senior instructors, personal interviews and group discussions. Levels I-V provide a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation practice, emphasizing the development of genuineness, confidence, humor, and dignity within the complexity of daily life. The workshops are recommended for new and experienced meditators, as well as for those looking to enrich their existing spiritual path.

Level I: 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.

* Generosity policy applies. Our program tuitions are set at a level needed to support the program and the Center.  However, it is our commitment that no one be prevented from participating in our programs due to financial constraints.  We ask participants to contemplate how much they can offer and give more, less, or the suggested amount based on their individual circumstances.  This policy supports individuals who need to “pay what they can” due to financial hardship.  It also encourages generosity in those who have the means to offer more than the recommended tuition.
