A Retreat on Shambhala Meditation

with Acharya Fleet Maull

February 23 - 25

Special Funding Available

If you are an educator, M.Ed. student, health care professional, or artist, you may be eligible for special financial support through Hemera's Contemplative Fellowships.

This program is for both new and long time meditators and also for those who have already been introduced to Shambhala Meditation and would appreciate the opportunity to deepen their practice.

Please join Acharya Fleet Maull to explore and connect with our own humanity through the practice of Shambhala Meditation, a unique approach to the practice of meditation transmitted by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche specifically for the times we live in and the many challenges we now face.  Proclaiming and connecting with Basic Goodness through the practice of Shambhala Meditation offers a powerful antidote to the speed, aggression and social trauma and suffering of our times.

Shambhala Meditation is an intimate practice that is both simple and profound. Through Shambhala Meditation, we learn to embody wisdom and compassion, bearing witness to the display of worldly phenomena with open and tender hearts.

From Proclaiming Goodness: A Guide to Shambhala Meditation by Sakyong Mipham:

"As courageous people who care deeply about the future, we must gently billow the sails of human goodness. It is up to us to take responsibility for uplifting ourselves and society. This happens by discovering our basic goodness and appreciating our worthiness as human beings. We can do this through Shambhala meditation."

Acharya Maull has been authorized by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche to transmit Shambhala Meditation and guide students in learning the practice.  This program is open to all, and Acharya Maull will offer the transmission of Shambhala Meditation to new and experienced meditators alike.  Through talks, guided meditation, dialog and interactive practices, Acharya Maull will guide participants in fully establishing themselves in the practice of Shambhala Meditation. 

Program participants will receive:

  • A safe and sane retreat environment for receiving the teachings
  • Formal transmission of the practice of Shambhala Meditation from Acharya Maull, a personal representative of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche
  • Guidance and support in practice of Shambhala Meditation from from an authorized senior teacher.
  • Opportunity to engage in facilitated dialog with fellow students regarding their experience and practice of Shambhala Meditation.
