Shambhala Training Level I


September 26 / 6:30 PM - September 27 / 6:00 PM

Through the practice of meditation, we begin to glimpse that goodness, rather than confusion, is the unconditional ground of our existence. Opening to ourselves with gentleness and appreciation, we begin to see our potential as genuine and compassionate human beings.


This first weekend retreat of the Way of Shambhala path of training introduces the practice of meditation and the basic principles of the Shambhala teachings. The retreat includes meditation instruction and practice, talks, group discussion, and individual interviews.


Prerequisites: This program is open to everyone, and no previous experience with meditation is necessary.


Childcare: Childcare will be offered with this program. Please RSVP in advance if you will need this service.


Location: Seattle Shambhala Center, 3107 E Harrison St, Seattle.
