The Friday night TALK is free and open to the public.

This course is an introduction to meditation and Shambhala Buddhism.  NO pre-requisits are required.

In Shambhala Training Level One the ancient wisdom of Shambhala comes alive in our daily existence. This first level presents the view that the world is sacred and basic goodness is our birthright. This is a basic human wisdom that doesn't belong to any one culture or religious tradition - though it can be found in many of them throughout history. All humans can discover this goodness of human life and radiate that goodness into the world for the peace and sanity of others.

Shambhala Training is a path to develop the dignity of being human, using meditation as a means to develop fearlessness, confidence, openness, and gentleness toward ourselves and our world. The first in a series of trainings, Level One includes instruction on meditation, talks by the director, individual meetings with teachers, discussions with other participants, and a concluding reception.

These workshops are recommended for new and experienced meditators, with an emphasis to apply the wisdom of meditation to our everyday lives.

The program schedule is Friday from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, Saturday on 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, and Sunday from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. Registration opens at 6:30 pm.

The course 'MEDITATION in Everyday Life' is recommended either before or after Level One.
