    The Shambhala Sadhana and Shambhala Meditation are central practices of our community. Acharya Dan Hessey has offered to lead us.

     

    All members are welcome to attend.

     

    It is restricted to members, because some prior familiarity with Shambhala teachings and culture is helpful to understanding the Shambhala Sadhana.

     


    The emphasis is on collective group  practice, gathering and celebrating society regardless of levels on the path. The aspiration is for a consistent, celebratory, and profound community experience in which new and seasoned warriors are all practicing and in  conversation together.

     

    The Shambhala Sadhana practice coupled with food and conversation — Food, Conversation, and Meditation — is a powerful method to engage together in creating enlightened society. The Shambhala Sadhana encourages us to experience basic goodness personally and societally. Good conversation inspires us and increases our relationships with others. Celebration helps us to gather together and radiate goodness in our cities, towns, and communities.
