Through meditation we get to know ourselves with kindness and appreciation. This frees us from the cycle of doubt, resentment, and negativity. Join us for the first program in The Way of Shambhala series and learn how to integrate mindfulness-awareness meditation with your daily life.

This program includes meditation instruction, talks, periods of meditation practice, and discussion .

The Way of Shambhala programs offer a structured path of meditation and a complete introduction to the foundations of Shambhala Buddhism. Open to people of any spiritual tradition, this series provides a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation practice, wisdom teachings, and physical practices rooted in the ancient traditions of Shambhala and Tibetan Buddhism.

There is no prerequisite. Everyone welcome.
