Shambhala Training Weekend One NYC

Join us for the first weekend retreat of The Shambhala Path
July 8-10, 2017

“Feel Human Again: Shambhala Training Weekend I,” is the first program in the renowned Way of Shambhala series. This intimate urban retreat provides instruction for sitting and walking meditation as a means to develop mindfulness in daily life.

This first Shambhala Training Weekend presents the view that human beings, at the core, are fundamentally awake. By training in meditation, we learn to remember our natural confidence and relax to the freshness of the present moment, no matter what that moment may bring.

We’ll discover that awakening is not about escaping from the world we live in, but instead is about bringing our practice to every aspect of our lives: work, play, relationships, and more. It all begins with giving ourselves the opportunity to reconnect with our true human existence — the experience of our five senses, the feeling of emotions in our body, and yes, even the awareness of thoughts across our minds.
