    Shambhala Training is a secular meditation training that develops fearlessness, confidence, openness, and gentleness towards ourselves and our world. These qualities arise out of meditation practice and study of Shambhala warriorship. Shambhala Training welcomes people of all religious traditions as well as those who do not follow a particular spiritual path.
    This weekend retreat – the Art of Being Human – is the first in a series of five trainings in the Way of Shambhala Series. Level One introduces participants to the practice of sitting meditation and to the basic principles of the Shambhala path of warriorship. The program includes meditation instruction, talks by the Director, group discussions, guided contemplative practice, and individual interviews with instructors.
    Through the practice of meditation, we glimpse unconditional basic goodness as the ground of our existence. We learn to experience the world as sacred and see basic goodness as our birthright. Opening to ourselves with gentleness and appreciation, we begin to experience ourselves as genuine and compassionate human beings. 
    The weekend opens with a PUBLIC talk on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome!
