Shambhala Training Weekend I: Feel Human Again (aka The Art of Being Human) is the first of five weekend retreats in Shambhala Training. This mindfulness meditation retreat weekend presents the view that human beings, at their core, are fundamentally awake.

Through the practice of sitting and walking meditation, we will remember our natural confidence and relax to the freshness of the present moment, no matter what that moment may bring.

With the guidance of a senior Shambhala teacher 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.

Shambhala Training Weekend I is designed for new meditators or those looking to reconnect with meditation practice. Our senior teacher will incorporate teachings on awake living into meditation instruction and informative talks. Students leave with the tools they need to bring a mindfulness meditation practice into their daily lives.

Shambhala Training Weekend I includes:

  • Guided meditation practice

  • Mindfulness meditation talks

  • Optional one-to-one meditation instruction
