The Shambhala Meditation Dathun can be taken in it’s entirety or in weekly segments. 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 are completely new to meditation, we recommend our Simplicity Retreat, which is running December 21-28, concurrently with Week II of the Dathün.
