    Shambhala trains us to engage our everyday life in the world with the same open, soft vulnerability we have discovered and cultivated privately in our meditation. This approach – scary, daring, and gentle – thwarts defensiveness and aggression and is the essence of Shambhala warriorship. It’s how we gain confidence in our own basic goodness and help others experience theirs. Together we transform moments driven by fear into moments of mutual courage, kindness, and wisdom.

    Join us for a weekend retreat course that will introduce you to the Shambhala teachings and practices of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, one of the most influential Buddhist teachers in the West. He offered a secular path of meditation that is open to people of any spiritual tradition or none at all.

    This weekend will be taught by Chris Kreeger, a senior teacher who has taught meditation, Shambhala, and Buddhism for over 30 years. The course will take place in Chris’ home in Baltimore, affording an intimate gathering where participants can connect with people similarly interested in meditation and develop a supportive, ongoing community of friendship.

    The weekend retreat will begin on Friday evening, July 26, from 6:30 PM until 8:30 PM. It will continue Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 AM until 6 PM. Sessions will include meditation instruction, Shambhala path teachings, and discussions.  Full location details for Chris' home will be in the email confirming your registration.

    This course is suitable for beginners as well as experienced meditators who want to deepen their practice and understanding; prior Shambhala program attendance is not required.

    Because Chris’ living room can only accommodate 10 people, we recommend registering early to secure your spot.  For everyone to get the most out of this program, we ask that participants make a personal commitment to attend the entire weekend.  This helps create a supportive environment for everyone and provide necessary continuity.
