    “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.
