Shambhala Training Weekend I: Feel Human Again

“Feel Human Again” is the first retreat in Shambhala Training, a structured path of meditation and emotional intelligence education. This immersive experience is designed for new and returning meditators looking to explore and deepen a mindfulness meditation practice. 

About Shambhala Training Weekend I

Shambhala Training Weekend I: Feel Human Again is the first weekend retreat in Shambhala Training. This weekend provides an opportunity to learn and practice the simple yet profound technique of mindfulness-awareness meditation.

Through short, repeated sessions of sitting meditation, we will deepen our familiarity and comfort just being with ourselves. In the process, we will remember our natural confidence and relax into the present moment.

Interspered lectures and discussion help us clarify the Shambhala view of meditation practice: to reconnect with our inherent sanity as a means to extend compassion to ourselves and others. Through a healthy balance of instruction and practice, we deepen our understanding of the how and the why of meditation.

With the guidance of Shambhala teacher David Perrin and a group of experienced meditation instructors, we’ll discover how to carry our practice off the cushion and into every aspect of our lives.

Shambhala Training Weekend I includes:

  • Instructions on sitting and walking meditation
  • Guided and silent sessions of sitting and walking meditation
  • Talks and small group discussions
  • Optional one-on-one Q&A with meditation instructor
  • Concluding Sunday reception
  • Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior text book by Chögyam Trungpa
