In a busy, high-pressure, hi-tech world, the teachings on awareness and warriorship offer youth an opportunity to slow down, learn about oneself, and open one's heart to others. At the heart of the Shambhala teachings is the understanding that every person is fundamentally good and we have the potential to manifest as Enlightened Society.

In this weekend we will explore what it looks like to lead our lives from this basic principle. Together we will create a culture that will encourage our innate qualities of kindness, wisdom, and strength.

This retreat will include talks, discussions, art and physical activities synchronizing body and mind.

Parents have an opportunity to participate in the year end nyinthün Letting Go and Letting Come held concurrently Dec. 26 - Jan. 1.
