Shambhala Training Level 1: The Art of Being Human

With Mimi Valiulis

February 14 - 16, 2020

Open to all!

We usually associate happiness with fleeting moments of satisfaction, pleasure or comfort, but the Shambhala teachings and the meditation practice they are based on can lead us to deeper and more enduring happiness. This is the path we set out to explore in Level 1 as mindfulness practice begins to open us to the depth and dimension of the present moment where we learn to appreciate who and what we really are.

The Shambhala Training Level 1 introductory weekend explores and deepens the basic technique of mindfulness meditation. By settling our minds we begin to see the magic of the world beyond our habitual filters. We experience the power and fulfillment of resting in the present and begin to make friends with ourselves.

This weekend includes sitting and walking meditation instruction and practice, talks by an experienced Shambhala teacher, group meditation discussions, and opportunities to socialize and make new friends with fellow participants.
