September 23rd—December 23rd

    Room: Online

    The practice of meditation is a means to connect with our inherent goodness and worthiness.  Meditation allows our natural intelligence to express itself and thereby enable a journey of self-discovery.   As we grow with the practice, it deepens our resilience and enables appreciation of life’s challenges and complexities.

    In “Learning to Meditate” we will meet on Zoom where a Shambhala Path Meditation Instructor will host a conversation about the path of meditation and offer instruction in the practice. We will practice together for brief periods then pause to allow space to discuss questions or issues coming up for you. We will point out upcoming retreats and courses that may be of interest, and we can arrange follow-up individual instruction for those who have an interest in a more in-depth discussion. 

    “By meditation here we mean something very basic and simple that is not tied to any one culture. We are talking about a very basic act: sitting on the ground, assuming a good posture, and developing a sense of our spot, our place on this earth. This is the means of rediscovering ourselves and our basic goodness, the means to tune ourselves in to genuine reality, without any expectations or preconceptions.”

    –Chögyam Trungpa, Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior

    There is no fee for this program, but you need to register each time you plan to attend, so that we know to schedule a meditation instructor to lead the Zoom meeting.
