Meditation Retreat for Everyday Life with Rupa Acharya Suzann Duquette and Shastri Ethan Nichtern

Shambhala Mountain Center:
Shambhala Queer Dharma Retreat with Acharya Eve Rosenthal and Acharya Eric Spiegel
All beings possess natural goodness, kindness and intelligence, noble qualities inherent in each of us, regardless of style or sexuality. The Shambhala dharma is about gaining confidence in these inherent qualities by means of meditation and infusing this confidence into our everyday lives. While this is true for everyone, the LBGTQ community faces particular challenges within society; this can be both an inspiration and an obstacle for each of us. This retreat for the LGBTQ community invites practitioners of all levels of experience, but no previous meditation is necessary.
