The Way of Shambhala
The Way of Shamabhala (WoS) is a series of weekend 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.
The sequential program includes the study and practice of Shambhala warriorship- a path of nonaggression born from the bravery and gentleness of meeting our world without bias or judgment. This path shows how to take the challenges of daily life in our modern society as opportunities for both contemplative practice and social action.
The WoS weekends consist of thorough instruction in meditation, the practice of sitting and walking meditation in a group setting, one-on-one interviews to clarify questions, discussion groups and talks by a senior teacher.
WoS is particularly suitable for those who practice in other spiritual traditions, but are looking to explore the transformative benefits of meditation. Level I is the beginning of the Shambhala Training path, which has two parts, The Heart of Warriorship (Levels I – V), and The Sacred Path (Levels Great Eastern Sun through Golden Key).
