This program is offered simultaneously in-person and online via Zoom.

The Shambhala teachings are some of the world’s highest spiritual teachings disguised in common, everyday language that says there is no difference between the spiritual path and how I live my life, as it is, right now. These teachings suggest that the way to counter this powerful age of aggression is to show up with tremendous gentleness and bravery. When we look around, we see that this world needs medicine this powerful.

Come together for this one-day seminar to explore how this path is designed to help ourselves help the world. The training is both very deep and very fresh—designed to meet the intense confusion of the world with fearlessness and ordinary magic, meeting the world fully and nakedly on its own terms. This is not simply an introductory tour; The Hidden Treasure Teachings of Shambhala is a confluence of multiple wisdom streams, not only traditional Buddhism, but also indigenous shamanic practices, and the deep wisdom of the Tibetan Dzokchen tradition. We will cover some of these in Saturday’s seminar.

This program is a deep dive into where Shambhala comes from and where it is going. While it is open to all, it is primarily recommended to participants who already have a meditation practice.”
