Shambhala Training Level I: The Art of Being Human is the beginning of the Way of Shambhala path - a series of weekend retreats and companion classes that are an effective way for students of any tradition to learn to meditate. 

Shambhala Training Levels I through V provide secular meditation training that develops fearlessness, confidence, openness and gentleness toward ourselves and our world. These qualities arise out of meditation practice and the study of Shambhala warriorship.

This first Level focuses on the basic technique of mindfulness-awareness meditation. By settling the mind, we begin to experience the brilliance of the world beyond our habitual patterns and conceptual filters, the quality of basic goodness we can neither create nor destroy.

Shambhala Training welcomes people of all religious traditions as well as those who do not follow a particular spiritual path.
