This is the first part of an extensive path of training rooted in the ancient meditation practices and wisdom teachings of the Shambhala tradition. These teachings are based on the vision that every human being has a natural source of innate wakefulness and compassion that we can discover, cultivate and express in our life. Through the practice of sitting and walking meditation, we will remember our natural confidence and relax into the freshness of the present moment, no matter what that moment may bring.

Our retreat will include:
• Guided meditation practice
• Mindfulness meditation talks by senior teachers
• Group discussions
• Mindfulness movement exercises
