Shambhala Training is a series of contemplative workshops, suited for both beginning and experienced meditators. The simple and profound technique of mindfulness and awareness is the basis of a secular path of meditation, which can benefit people of any spiritual tradition and way of life.

Shambhala Training Level I: The Art of Being Human, introduces the rich Shambhala tradition, which inspires and encourages us to explore, appreciate, and celebrate what it is to be human. During the weekend, one is given formal meditation instruction.

Through practice, we develop courage to simply be with ourselves in a curious and gentle way, allowing things to be as they are. With the guidance of senior Shambhala teacher, Shastri Andrea Darby and a group of experienced meditation instructors, we’ll 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.

All participants must pre-register to save a place for the weekend.
