Shambhala Meditation is a unique approach to mindfulness-awareness practice that invites the meditator to explore directly the qualities of feeling, being and touching the goodness that is fundamental to our basic human nature. In this week of group retreat (weekthün), we will go deeply into Shambhala Meditation. It helps us explore the felt personal experience of our own humanity.

This is a residential retreat. Open to all who have received the Shambhala Meditation transmission. Beginner and experienced meditators are warmly invited to attend. Full attendance meets the weekthün requirement that is a prerequisite for various advanced programs.
