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 $25 for an introduction to Shambhala Training.

Ciprian Iancu has been practicing meditation for over fifteen years, and has led programs throughout the northeast US; Birmingham, Alabama; and Cape Town, South Africa. He served as the co-executive director of the Shambhala Meditation Center of New York for three years, and currently teaches Buddhist meditation at the New School University.
