The Art of Being Human Shambhala Training Level 1

With Shastri Jason Revulson

September 28 - 29, 2019

Through the practice of meditation, we glimpse a kind of goodness that is inherent in our being. It’s a sense of being aware, open and confident in one’s own being. At the same time, the world appears as a series of small, delightful surprises. This is actually our fundamental nature, and it feels basically good. This is both the basis and the result of a good meditation practice.

This workshop will be appropriate for people who want to learn to meditate, or people who already have a meditation practice but want to deepen it.

The program will include meditation instruction, time to meditate, talks, discussions and conversations with a meditation instructor. There will be a light breakfast, tea and coffee on Sunday morning.
