Together we will discover the new Sadhana of Kindness, a companion practice to the Shambhala Sadhana. Join us for communal practice and study of this beautiful text!

A sadhana, literally “means of accomplishment,” is a liturgical practice that presents a guided meditation to accomplish a specific purpose—in this case, the cultivation of kindness. In the Buddhist and Shambhala traditions kindness is understood as the innate longing for connection that enables us to put others before ourselves. Engaging in ordinary kindness connects us directly with others, and life becomes a mutual celebration of our shared humanity.

The program will include a reading transmission, or lung, which gives permission to practice this sadhana. In addition to practicing the sadhana, we will engage in sitting meditation, Shambhala Meditation, various movement exercises, study, dialogic pairs, discussion groups, and contemplative outdoor walks. We will observe silence to facilitate tuning into our sense perceptions.

This program is open to everyone.
