Shambhala Training Level I -The Art of Being Human
with Joseph Fiala
LIVING AS IF EACH MOMENT WERE FRESH AND NEW, renouncing warfare with self and other, feeling the strength of one’s being, the tenderness of one’s heart – these are some of the hallmarks of being human. In The Art of Being Human, we seek to touch the bedrock that lies underneath our accumulated conditioning.
Through the practice of meditation, we glimpse unconditional goodness as the ground of our existence. Opening to ourselves with gentleness and appreciation, we begin to see our potential as genuine and compassionate human beings.
New meditators are welcome. The program will consist of meditation instruction and practice, talks by the director, discussion groups and individual interviews.
This program is the first in the Shambhala Training series and is open to all. It is a prerequisite for Shambhala Level II.
