Shambhala Training Level I: The Art of Being Human

The workshop will take place on Saturday, September 16, 8:30 am to noon and 1:30-5:30 pm, and continue on Sunday, September 17, from 8:30 am to 12:15, followed by a reception. 

Meditation provides us a glimpse of goodness that is inherent in our basic being. It’s a sense of being conscious, aware and open to others. When we are in this state of goodness, we experience nowness as a series of small, delightful surprises. We have a quality of caring and connection. This is actually the root of who we are. It’s also basis of a deep meditation practice.

This city retreat, directed by Shastri Russell Rodgers, will be appropriate for people who want to learn to meditate, or people who already have a meditation practice but want to deepen it by understanding its roots.

The retreat will be held at the Shambhala Centre, 812 Stanley Street, Nelson. There will be a light breakfast, tea and coffee at 8:30 am on Saturday and again on Sunday morning. Cost: $110, or whatever you can afford.
