    Room: Online using Zoom

    By Zoom

    Join us every Sunday in group practice of the Shambhala community's core discipline of mindfulness-awareness meditation. Periods of silent sitting and walking meditation will include training in opening our hearts. The basis of opening our hearts and minds is sitting meditation.

    The First Sunday of each month we will train in opening our hearts by cultivating Compassion through the practice of Maitri Bhavana, a short Shambhala Buddhist practice for those who are suffering from illness.

    The Third Sunday of each month we will train in opening our hearts by cultivating Kindness through the practice of the Sadhana of Kindness, a short Shambhala Buddhist practice on the power of kindness torward ourselves and others.

    On Alternate Sundays we will read and contemplate teaching from our lineage followed by a discussion. Currently we are reading Shambhala: Sacred Path of the Warrior.

    Each Sunday will include opening and closing chants and conclude with a discussion.
