Shambhala Training Level I: The Art of Being Human
Shastri Jeffrey Stevens
May 2–4, 2014
Through the practice of meditation, we glimpse unconditional goodness as the ground of our existence. This immersive weekend workshop helps us open to ourselves with gentleness and appreciation and begin to see our potential as genuine and compassionate human beings. This program is recommended for new and experienced meditators, as well as 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.
A longtime student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, Jeffrey began studying and practicing the Shambhala Buddhist path in 1992. He has an academic background in philosophy, anthropology, and Indo-Tibetan Buddhism. His occasionally humorous teaching style emphasizes a precise understanding of the mechanics of meditation, and he encourages students to articulate what they have learned with each new step in their education. In his professional life, he is a founding partner of August Wealth Group, a financial management company. He serves as Shastri, a senior teacher of the Shambhala tradition, at the Shambhala Meditation Center of Denver.
Financial aid is available for this program.
