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 is the study and practice of Shambhala warriorship, the tradition of human bravery and leadership. This path shows how to take the challenges of daily life into our modern society as opportunities for both contemplative practice and social action.

Level I: The Art of Being Human

Practice sitting and walking meditation and learn the basic principles of the Shambhala path of warriorship. Rediscover the good energy present in all of our experience. This basic goodness, innate to the way things are, is our own inborn, unconditional nature.

Prerequisite: None—everyone is welcome. Note: Shambhala Training Level I is prerequisite for Level II.

We encourage Level I participants to also take Meditation in Everyday Life, a 3-week course that is a companion to the weekend retreat.

In order to make our programs accessible to everyone, we have a “pay what you can afford” policy. If the program price is an obstacle for you, please decide what works for you and offer whatever you can.

For those who can offer more than the program price, we have a “patron price”. Your generosity in offering the patron price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price.
