“Shambhala meditation is synchronizing with our own genuineness; it is the act of being. Through this process we discover reality with three gestures - feeling, being, and touching... the mind progressively develops strength and trust in basic goodness, finally reaching full saturation with its own understanding and experience. When we have a strong mind, no matter what thoughts occur, we maintain our mental seat.”
-- Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche

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. As such, it invites us to relate to our direct experience and go beyond superficial thinking.

Retreat is a potent way to deepen in the practice of meditation. In this week of group retreat (weekthün), we will explore Shambhala Meditation, the felt personal experience of our humanity. This program will also include gentle physical activity, talks, silence, individual and group instruction and discussion.

Open to those who have received the Shambhala Meditation transmission. Full attendance meets the weekthün requirement that is a prerequisite for various advanced programs.

No partial attendance is accepted.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT ACCOMMODATIONS

We are temporarily offering a discounted single occupancy rate on accommodations for those attending alone. This option defaults to a room in the Lodge. However, if you choose a single in a cabin or tent, we will adjust your invoice to reflect the Covid rate.

ONLY CHOOSE DOUBLE OCCUPANCY IF you are attending the program with a friend or partner, otherwise you may still be charged the single price for the room, cabin, or tent.
