Shambhala Training Level I for Teens: The Art of Being Human

with Shastri Nick Kranz

February 24 - 26

 

This program is open to teens only.

Shambhala Training is a series of contemplative workshops, suited for both beginning and experienced meditators. The simple and profound technique of mindfulness and awareness is the basis of a secular path of meditation, which can benefit people of any spiritual tradition and way of life. Shambhala Training is the study and practice of Shambhala warriorship, the tradition of human bravery and leadership. This path shows how to take the challenges of daily life into our modern society as opportunities for both contemplative practice and social action.

Level I: The Art of Being Human

Practice sitting and walking meditation and learn the basic principles of the Shambhala path of warriorship. Rediscover the good energy present in all of our experience. This basic goodness, innate to the way things are, is our own inborn, unconditional nature.

Recommended Text: Shambhala: Sacred Path of the Warrior by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.

The program begins at 7:30pm on Friday, February 24, 2017 and ends around 5:00pm on Sunday, February 26, 2017.
