This intimate meditation retreat weekend presents the view that human beings, at their core, are fundamentally awake. It is open to all.

Shambhala Training Level I: Back to Basics (aka "Feel Human Again") is the first weekend retreat in The Way of Shambhala, an extensive path of training in authentic meditation practices and wisdom teachings.

This weekend retreat is designed for those looking to begin Shambhala Training and/or new and returning meditators looking for a venue to explore and deepen mindfulness-awareness meditation.  We’re hoping that practitioners at all levels will join us to revisit the teachings on Basic Goodness and in order to further cement the ties of community that bind us together.

Through the practice of sitting and walking meditation, we will remember our natural confidence and relax to the freshness of the present moment, no matter what that moment may bring. Shambhala Training presents the view that human beings, at the core, are fundamentally awake.

With the guidance of teachres Lyle Larson and Arelly Sanchez-Shackett, along with group of experienced meditation instructors, you will discover that awakening is not about escaping from the world we live in, but instead is about bringing a mindset of wakefulness to 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 yes, even the awareness of thoughts across our minds.

During this weekend, the teachers will incorporate teachings on awake living into their meditation instruction and informative talks. You will leave with the tools you need to bring a mindfulness meditation practice into your daily life.

Shambhala Training Weekend I Includes

  • Guided meditation practiceMindfulness meditation talks
  • Optional one-on-one meditation instruction
