Monthly Half-Nyinthün


November 25 / 9:00 AM - November 25 / 12:00 PM

Building Trust in Our Mind

"The first moment of bravery is working with the mind. That’s what we do in meditation—build trust in our mind."
     - Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche

Nyinthün is a Tibetan word meaning “a period of one day". In the Shambhala tradition, it refers to a full day of meditation practice. Here in Cape Town, we meet on the last Sunday of every month for a morning half-nyinthün, alternating sitting meditation with walking meditation and yoga stretches. This concentrated practice opportunity is recommended as an excellent monthly discipline for developing trust in our mind, deepening our practice and building our practice community.

Please join us from 09:00–12:00.

Venue: Erin Hall, No.8 Erin Street, Rondebosch. See directions attached. Please note that the half-nyinthün takes place in the front room of the house.

What to bring: We have meditation cushions/benches, mats and chairs, so bring your own only if you have one you especially prefer to use.

For further information contact Michelle at secretary[at]shambhala[dot]co[dot]za. Please let Michelle know if you require instruction in the meditation technique, so that we can arrange for a meditation instructor to meet with you.

There is no charge for attending Shambhala Cape Town practice sessions; however, we suggest a voluntary donation of R30.00 toward our costs.
