Open to all!

We usually associate happiness with fleeting moments of satisfaction, pleasure or comfort, but the Shambhala teachings and the meditation practice they are based on can lead us to a deeper and more enduring happiness. This is the path we set out to explore in Level 1 as mindfulness practice begins to open us to the depth and dimension of the present moment where we learn to appreciate who and what we really are.

The Shambhala Training Level 1 introductory weekend explores and deepens the basic technique of mindfulness meditation. By settling our minds we begin to see the magic of the world beyond our habitual filters. We experience the power and fulfillment of resting in the present and begin to make friends with ourselves.

Jane Hope is a long-term student of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, and a founding member of the London Shambhala Meditation Centre. She has been appointed by the Sakyong as a 'shastri', or senior teacher, for the UK and the Ukraine. Jane has been teaching since 1981 in the UK, North America and Europe. Born on the edge of the Pennines in the North East of England, Jane studied fine art and, like many of her generation became fascinated by Eastern religions and art. In the late 60’s, while living and working with an experimental theatre group and commune, the Exploding Galaxy, she started to hear rumours about an “interesting and outrageous young lama” who was living somewhere in UK. This was Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Jane worked for 15 years as a Bereavement Counsellor working with parents whose baby had died from SIDS (Sudden Infant death Syndrome). She has three published books, including “The Beginners Guide to Buddhism”.
