The Art of Being Human in Challenging Times:
Special Shambhala Training Level I
Shambhala Meditation Center
Washington, D.C.

Friday, April 20 – Sunday, April 22, 2018

The Art of Being Human: Shambhala Training Level I is the first program in the renowned Way of Shambhala series. This intimate urban retreat provides instruction for sitting and walking meditation as a means to develop mindfulness in daily life.

This first weekend program presents the view that human beings, at the core, are fundamentally awake. By training in meditation, we can remember and reconnect with our natural confidence, and relax to the freshness of the present moment, no matter what that moment may bring.

We’ll discover that awakening is not about escaping from the world we live in, but instead is about bringing our mindfulness into every aspect of our lives: work, play, relationships, and more. It all begins with giving ourselves the opportunity to reconnect with our true human existence — the experience of our five senses, the feeling of emotions in our body, and even the awareness of thoughts across our minds.
