This course introduces Shambhala Meditation, a new practice created by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. Simple yet profound, Shambhala Meditation complements and empowers mindfulness. Feeling, touching, and being allow us to contact our humanity and inherent worthiness.

The only prerequisite for this course is familiarity with sitting meditation.

We will be working with the online course from Shambhala Online as the primary material. Shastri Tom Berthoff will help guide the program - leading discussion groups, offering clarifications, and so on.

Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche

The Sakyong, literally translated as “earth protector,” is a dharma king and lineage holder of the Shambhala lineage, guiding thousands of students around the world in the path of meditation.

The Sakyong’s teachings show us how to use everyday life as a means to ripen our spiritual potential. We practice turning the mind toward others as a discipline that creates confidence and compassion –the ability to attain success that occurs from acting virtuously.
