Shambhala Training Level I: The Art of Being Human  Through the practice of meditation, we glimpse unconditional goodness as the ground of our existence. As we open to ourselves with gentleness and appreciation, we begin to see our potential as genuine, dignified and caring human being.

Every weekend level includes meditation instruction, periods of meditation practice, one-on-one meetings to clarify questions, talks by senior teachers, group discussions and a concluding reception.

This program is open to everyone. There are no prerequisites required.

The Friday night talk is free and open to the public.

About the Way of Shambhala:

Shambhala Training is a sequence of weekend retreats suitable for anyone interested in exploring meditation as a means to develop qualities of opennes, gentleness, fearlessness, and confidence toward ourselves and our world.

Each weekend presents a progression of Shambhala warriorship—a path of nonaggression born from the willingness to meet our world without bias or judgment. This path shows how to take the challenges of everyday life as opportunities to increase our capacity for kindness and compassion.

The Way of Shambhala is composed of Shambhala Training Levels I-V, with each level followed by a five-week In Everyday Life course that expands upon what was offered in the weekend.

Over the course of a year, the Way of Shambhala introduces the entire Shambhala path. This series offers a glimpse of the Shambhala vision of enlightened society by emphasizing the ways in which meditation can impact our daily lives, and from there, how the sanity of meditation can expand to impact our community and our whole society.
