Way of Shambhala Series – New Cycle Starting in September!
In September, SMCD kicks off its annual Way of Shambhala program series which will continue through next May. The simple and profound technique of mindfulness and awareness forms the basis of this secular path of meditation.
The program consists of five weekend workshops – Shambhala Training Levels 1 – V – that provide an experiential overview of meditation practice, wisdom teachings, contemplative arts, and physical disciplines rooted in the ancient and profound traditions of Shambhala and Vajrayana Buddhism. These five contemplative weekend intensives are interspersed with weekly classes — the Everyday Life Series – that support and deepen the students’ training and understanding of the practices.
Beginning with Shambhala Training Level I and/or Meditation in Everyday Life (see above), the program of courses and weekend retreats build on each other sequentially. Anyone may take either the Everyday Life courses or the Shambhala Training weekend retreats exclusively. We encourage concurrent participation in both, if possible, as the combination can profoundly deepen and extend one’s meditation practice. For further information, click here.
