    As we learn to trust our nature enough to let go into the present moment with gentleness and precision, our hearts soften, and we appreciate the sacredness of our daily lives. In communicating with the world gently and fearlessly, our awareness sharpens. We discover the open clear sky of mind, a delightful source of wisdom and uplifted energy.

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

    Prerequisites: Shambhala Training IV

    Shambhala Training provides in-depth meditation retreats and teachings. Attendance is required for each session of the program.

    About the Way of Shambhala

    The Way of Shambhala includes Shambhala Training programs I–V. Over the course of a year, these programs introduce the entire Shambhala path. This series offers a glimpse of the Shambhala vision of enlightened society by emphasizing how meditation can impact our daily lives—and from there, how the sanity of meditation can impact our community and our whole society. 

    We are delighted that through sponsor support, we can offer pricing options. Registering as a sponsor generously supports those who cannot afford the full price. Thank you!

    Generosity Policy: Please contact Ed Smutney at [email protected] if you need financial assistance to attend this program.

    The program prices include a $25 material fee for a pin to commemorate graduating the Shambhala Trainng series, which is quite the accomplishment and very worthy of the celebration that will be on Sunday.
