Shambhala Meditation Weekthun

With Shastri Tom Bell

August 26 - September 2, 2018

“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

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 all; beginner and experienced meditators of all levels are warmly invited to attend. Full attendance meets the weekthün requirement that is a prerequisite for various advanced programs.
