  • $150 Price

Communicating with the world gently and fearlessly, our awareness is sharpened and we find the open clear sky of mind—a delightful source of wisdom and uplifted energy. We trust our nature enough to let go into the present moment.

Every Shambhala Training level includes thorough meditation instruction, periods of meditation practice, one-on-one meetings to clarify questions, talks by senior teachers, group discussions and a concluding reception.  The weekend is structured to offer participants teachings and an in-depth meditation retreat.  Attendance is required for the Friday night talk and for each session of the program.
