Shambhala Training Level I: The Art of Being Human
March 15–17, 2013
Meditation sharpens our intelligence and uncovers our wisdom. In this workshop, we receive practical instructions for transforming confused emotions and situations into effective actions as they arise. No longer deterred or depressed by obstacles, we can include everything as part of the path. Daily life challenges can become opportunities for both contemplative practice and social action. Through the practice of meditation, we glimpse unconditional goodness as the ground of our existence. Opening to ourselves with gentleness and appreciation, we begin to see our potential as genuine and compassionate human beings. This workshop is recommended for new and experienced meditators, as well as for those looking to enrich their existing spiritual path. You will receive a copy of Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.
