Silent Meditation Intensive: The Cradle of Loving-Kindness

Shastri Loden Nyima

January 10–12, 2020

Tuition $100 + 2 nights

Loden Nyima

In today’s speedy world, we are all in need of kindness to ourselves. This two-day practice intensive is designed for meditators looking to take a deep dive into their practice. This weekend is spent in silence to offer ourselves space to settle, on the sacred land of Shambhala Mountain Center and with an experienced instructor. This way, we practice befriending ourselves and uncovering our natural basic goodness.

Arriving Friday to settle in, this retreat offers full days of meditation on both Saturday and Sunday. Minimal instruction on the practice of sitting meditation, walking meditation, and mindful eating will be offered.

Not suitable for novice meditators.
