Through the practice of meditation, we begin to glimpse that goodness—rather than confusion—is the unconditional ground of our existence. Opening to ourselves with gentleness and appreciation, we begin to see our potential as genuine and compassionate human beings.

This first weekend retreat of the Way of Shambhala path of training introduces the practice of meditation and the basic principles of the Shambhala teachings. The retreat includes meditation instruction and practice, talks, group discussion, and individual interviews.

Prerequisite: None—everyone is welcome. (Note: Shambhala Training Level I is prerequisite for Level II.)

Dates and times: Saturday, September 13, 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM; and Sunday, September 14, 8:30 AM – 1:00 PM

Suggested reading: Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior, by Chögyam Trungpa. This book is available for purchase in the Victoria Shambhala Centre’s bookstore.
