Shambhala Level I The Art of Being Human
At the Victoria Shambhala-Buddhist Meditation Centre
An introduction to the path of meditation in which we learn to experience the world as sacred and see basic goodness as our birthright. More
Through the practice of meditation, we glimpse unconditional goodness as the ground of our existence. Opening to ourselves with gentleness and appreciation, we begin to see our potential as genuine and compassionate human beings.
This first weekend of the Shambhala Training Heart of Warriorship series introduces participants to the practice of sitting meditation and to the basic principles of the Shambhala path of warriorship. There is a fundamental, good energy present in all of our experience, and this basic goodness, innate to the way things are, is our own inborn, unconditional nature as well.
The program includes meditation instruction, talks by the Director, group discussions, guided contemplative practice, and individual interviews with instructors.
Shambhala Training Level One is a pre-requisite for Level Two and is the first step in The Way of Shambhala curriculum.
