"In the Shambhla tradition, the discipline for developing both gentleness towards ourselves and appreciation of our world is the sitting practice of meditation." Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

The Way of Shambhala begins with Shambhala Training Level I - The Art of Being Human. Level I introduces the rich Shambhala tradition, which inspires and encourages us to explore and celebrate what it is to be human. During the weekend we begin to work with the practice of meditation which allows this gentle exploration to take place.

Level I offers both a good introduction for complete beginners and a fresh inspiration for those who may already have some experience of meditation within their own spiritual traditions.

The entire Way of Shambhala curriculm consists of five Shambhala Training weekends or "Levels" and eight evening courses (five in the Everyday Life series and three in the Basic Goodness series.) Each class offers meditation instruction and practice, talks on the Shambhala teachings, group discussions and dialogue.

Completing the Way of Shambhala provides the tools you need to establish a personal meditation discipline and take the basic principles of warriorship forward into your daily life. The series of classes are taken sequentially, and can be done at your own pace.

***Registration deadline EXTENDED to the end of the day, Sun, Jan 5th***
