Shambhala Training is a series of weekend long contemplative workshops, suited for both beginning and experienced meditators. The simple and profound technique of mindfulness and awareness is the basis of a secular path of meditation, which can benefit people of any spiritual tradition and way of life.
The sequential program includes the study and practice of Shambhala warriorship - a path of non-aggression born from the bravery and gentleness of meeting our world without bias or judgment. This path shows how to take the challenges of daily life in our modern society as opportunities for both contemplative practice and social action.
The Shambhala Training weekends consist of thorough instruction in meditation, the practice of sitting and walking meditation in a group setting, one-on-one meetings with a meditation instructor to clarify questions, discussion groups and talks by a senior teacher.
