The Art of Being Human (Level 1) - POSTPONED TO 27/28 SEPTEMBER

with John Seex
May 23 / 8:00 PM - May 25 / 4:00 PM


In his book “Shambhala – Sacred Path of the Warrior” Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche said “There is a natural source of radiance and brilliance in the world which is the innate wakefulness of human beings – if we open our eyes, if we open our minds, if we open our hearts, we will find that the world is a magical place”.

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.

The weekend is taught by John Seex who is a student, and occasionally a secretary, of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. He has been practicing for 20 years and last year completed an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy. He is devoted to the Shambhala path of creating enlightened society through befriending all parts of ourselves and entering into the essence of our experience rather than try and manage it.

The Way of Shambhala offers a structured path of meditation and complete introduction to the foundations of Shambhala Buddhism.  Suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators, and open to people of any spiritual tradition, this series of weekends and classes provide a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation practice, wisdom teachings, and physical practices rooted in the ancient traditions of Shambhala and Tibetan Buddhism.
