Room: London meditation hall

Shambhala offers a series of weekend retreats suitable for anyone interested in the practice of meditation as a way to develop confidence, openness, and self-understanding. Intensive practice over the course of a weekend is a very powerful way to strengthen your meditation and your motivation to develop a regular personal practice.

What is this course about?

Meditation is presented as an opportunity to rest in what you already are — basic goodness, natural peace and clarity. It is how we train in being awake, placing the mind on the breath, in the present moment.

Through the simple, regular practice of sitting meditation, we learn to develop a healthier relationship with our mind and thoughts and become skilled in how to work with the speed and the challenges of daily life. We to allow the mind to relax within itself, with a sense of appreciation and joy.

What is involved?

Every Shambhala retreat weekend includes:

  • Detailed and regular meditation instruction
  • Periods of meditation practice
  • Individual support and advice
  • Talks on what we can discover through meditation
  • Opportunities to ask question
  • Group discussion activities
