Please join us for this mindfulness meditation retreat presenting the view that human beings at their core, including ourselves, are fundamentally awake and good. This program is open to all.

The Art of Being Human: Shambhala Training Level I

December 7-9 at the Brunswick Shambhala Meditation Center, 19 Mason Street in Brunswick with Shastri Veit Weber.

The Art of Being Human: Shambhala Training Level I is the first of the five levels of training curriculum, a seminal path of ancient meditation practices and wisdom teachings rooted in the Shambhala tradition - created for the challenges of today's modern, everyday existence.

This retreat is designed for those looking to:

• learn mindfulness meditation
• explore the Shambhala path
• deepen an existing mindfulness-awareness meditation practice

Through the practice of sitting and walking meditation, we will remember our natural confidence and relax to the freshness of the present moment, no matter what that moment may bring. Shambhala Training presents the view that human beings, at the core, are fundamentally awake and good.

With the guidance of a senior Shambhala teacher, you will discover that awakening is not about escaping from the world we live in but instead is about bringing a mindset of wakefulness to every aspect of our lives: work, play, relationships, and more. It all begins with giving ourselves the opportunity to reconnect with our true human existence—the experience of our five senses, the feeling of emotions in our body, and yes, even the awareness of thoughts across our minds.

Shambhala Training Level I includes:

  • Instructions on sitting and walking meditation 
  • Guided meditation practice
  • Mindfulness meditation talks by a senior teacher
  • Small Group discussions
  • Optional one-on-one meditation instruction

Schedule for the weekend is:

Friday 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Saturday 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM

Sunday 8:30 AM - 1:00 PM

You will leave with the tools you need to bring a mindfulness meditation practice into your daily life.
