The practice of sitting meditation slows our torrent of thoughts and distractions and uncovers the stable, clear and potent quality of our mind. This week of meditation will include meetings with meditation instructors, short talks, contemplative lunches, and plenty of time to let your mind rest from the usual hectic pace of life.
Beginners and seasoned meditators are all welcome.
Adapted from the Shambhala dathun the city weekthun is an opportunity for us to connect deeply with meditation while relating it directly with our regular life. Meditation practitioners of any silent tradition are welcome. Please contact Sandra Ladley with any questions at email@example.com. Full participation in the program will count toward the dathun requirement for Sutrayana Seminary; two consecutive sessions per day can be counted as the requirement for Shambhala Guides. To receive credit toward your dathun requirement you must register for this program and attend all three sessions daily.
We would also like to invite practitioners of all levels to join us in this week of spacious mind - for the entire week or one FULL day. Please no partial days. Everyone is asked to register by Wednesday, August 1. This is not a DROP IN program.

9:00 AM - 12:00 PM - Morning Chants and Meditation
Noon-1:30 Lunch Break
1:30 PM - 4:30 PM - Meditation

If we are willing to take an unbiased look, we will find that, in spite of all our problems and confusion, all our emotional and psychological ups and downs, there is something basically good about our existence as human beings. Unless we can discover that ground of goodness in our own lives, we cannot hope to improve the lives of others... we are speaking here of the basic goodness of being alive---which does not depend on our accomplishments or fulfilling our desires. —Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
