Shambhala Meditation Weekthun
with Kathryn Heckman
SHAMBHALA MEDITATION WEEKTHUN
Retreat is a potent way to deepen in the practice of meditation. In this week of group retreat (weekthun), we will explore Shambhala Meditation, the felt personal experience of basic goodness, together with the practice and study of mindfulness-awareness (shamatha-vipashyana). This week of practice will also include gentle physical activity, talks, silence, individual and group instruction and discussion.
This weekthun is open to all; beginner and experienced meditators of all levels are warmly invited to intend. Full attendance meets the weekthun requirement that is a prerequisite for various advanced programs.
As this is an in-city retreat held at the Halifax Shambhala Centre, 1084 Tower Rd., participants will be at the centre for the program during the day (see dates and times above), returning home in the evening.
Participants are asked to commit to the full retreat. Partial attendance may be possible only if one takes part in the beginning of the retreat. As space is limited, priority will be given to full-time participants.
