    Register with a friend and you each pay half price!
    Each week, we will join together to practice seated and walking meditation, as well as share in discussion about readings from several Shambhala Buddhist texts. Together, we will explore what happens when we stop avoiding ourselves and practice simply being with whatever is going on in the present moment. Through mindfulness and awareness, we will learn to cultivate stability and courage in the daily complexities of jobs, responsibilities, relationships, and the everyday desires, concerns, and uncertainties we all face. This is the first class in the Way of Shambhala curriculum. It offers a glimpse of the Shambhala vision of an enlightened society created through mindfulness-awareness meditation.
