Room: Brunswick


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 first weekend of the Way of Shambhala series 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.

Shambhala Training Level One is a pre-requisite for Level Two and is the first step in the Way of Shambhala curriculum.
We will learn to experience the world as sacred and see basic goodness as our birthright. Through the practice of meditation, we glimpse unconditional basic goodness as the ground of our existence. Opening to ourselves with gentleness and appreciation, we begin to see our potential as genuine and compassionate human beings.

This program will take place at the Shambhala Meditation Center, 19 Mason Street, Brunswick on February 23-25.

The Friday evening talk will be free and open to the public.

Director: Shastri Veit Weber

Shastri Veit Weber was appointed by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, the lineage holder of Shambhala, to serve as a Shastri in 2010. In this role, Veit oversees Practice & Education and the curriculum known as the Way of Shambhala at a regional level, serving New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. He trains meditation guides, instructors, and teachers. Veit will be joined by fellow Shambhala Training Director Craig Schneider, also from New Brunswick.

We appreciate your pre-registering and paying online where possible. This not only helps us plan for the program, but speeds up the registration process on the first evening of the program.

Generosity Policy

The Brunswick Portland Shambhala Center is funded solely by your membership, program fees, and  donations. Thank you for your generosity as you consider what you can pay for each program at our Center. We strive to price our programs in a way that accurately reflects the financial need of our Center and the cost to us of producing the program.

We have a generosity policy to make our offerings available to all who wish to participate. If the program price is an obstacle for you, please consider what is possible for you in your current situation, and offer as much of the program fee as you can.

For those who can offer more than the program price, we have a “patron price”. Your generosity in offering the patron price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price.
