    “Recognizing this goodness even for a moment reveals inconceivable wisdom”

    Full Moon Shambhala Sadhana Gatherings
    Meditation - Conversation - Food
    Open to all.

    Please bring a copy of the sadhana if you have one.

    There will be a children's program provided in the morning during practice of the Shambhala Sadhana that will focus on similar themes of goodness and wisdom. Please also consider staying for our afternoon Family Practice Day.

    If you are new to the Center, you are invited to attend our concurrent Welcome to Shambhala program instead.

    The Shambhala Sadhana is a meditation practice that utilizes imagery and sound to connect with our basic goodness and the goodness of others. It is a practice written by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche just prior to the conclusion of a year-long retreat. The Sakyong composed this text to deepen our personal and social connection with basic goodness. The Shambhala Sadhana powerfully and simply communicates the essence of basic goodness and enlightened society.

    The Sakyong has requested that we gather on full moons as a community and practice the Shambhala Sadhana. As a society, this is an opportunity for us practice together and have conversation and food in order to foster experiences of basic goodness personally and as a community.

    Those who have not received the Shambhala Sadhana at Enlightened Society Assembly may participate in these Full Moon gatherings but may not join other Shambhala Sadhana practice sessions or do the sadhana on their own.
