Shambhala Guide Training
with Carolyn Krusinski & Nicholas Kranz & Diana Evans
December 12 / 9:00 AM - December 14 / 6:00 PM
In addition to being trained to give initial instruction, a Shambhala Guide is a resource, friend, and host to newcomers within the context of Shambhala Center educational programs and events. The emphasis is not merely on delivering the meditation instruction but also on offering information on our Shambhala and Buddhist lineages, the programs, the practice paths, the shrines, Shambhala forms, chants, ceremonies, events and so on. The Guides will therefore be trained in the principles of engagement and friendship, listening, inquiry, and speaking from the heart, so they can assist each new student individually and appropriately.
