    Shambhala Training is a secular meditation training that develops fearlessness, confidence, openness and gentleness towards ourselves and our world.
    In this workshop we will explore how human beings have an inherent capacity for wakefulness and intelligence which can be cultivated and strengthened through meditation and reflection.  The workshop will include instruction in sitting and walking meditation, group discussions and talks by senior teacher Mark Blumenfeld.

    Shambhala Training is a series of contemplative workshops, suited for both beginning and experienced meditators. The simple and profound technique of mindfulness and awareness is the basis of a secular path of meditation, which can benefit people of any spiritual tradition and way of life. Shambhala Training is the study and practice of Shambhala warriorship, the tradition of human bravery and leadership. This path shows how to take the challenges of daily life into our modern society as opportunities for both contemplative practice and social action.
