This mindfulness meditation retreat weekend presents the view that human beings, at their core, are fundamentally awake.
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.
With the guidance of David Perrin and a group of experienced meditation instructors, we'll 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.
Shambhala Training Weekend I is designed for new and experienced meditators alike, looking to deepen or reconnect with meditation practice. Our Shambhala teacher will incorporate teachings on awake living into meditation instruction and informative talks. Students leave with the tools they need to bring sanity into their daily lives.
This is the first weekend retreat in Shambhala Training, a complete curriculum of mindfulness meditation and emotional intelligence education. Learn more: http://ny.shambhala.org/shambhala-training
