The dathün is a month-long journey to deepen in the practice of meditation. If you have not attended a week or more of dathün previously, please register for week I or week II. If you have a situation that requires an exception to the guidelines below, we can arrange for you to discuss this with the program directors:
If you wish to enter in the Weekthün I, you feel inspired to do an intensive group retreat. If you already have a meditation practice, that is a good foundation.
If you wish to enter in the Weekthün II, it is suggested that you have already completed some Shambhala Training Levels or attended other meditation programs.
If you wish to enter the Weekthün III, it is suggested that you have already completed at least one weekthün and are already familiar with oryoki.
