SHAMBHALA MEDITATION WEEKTHUN with ASHE ACHARYA JOHN ROCKWELL
In this weeklong meditation retreat, we will explore "Shambhala Meditation," a transmission of the spirit and essence of being human, together with our study and practice of the heart instructions of mindfulness-awareness (shamatha-vipashyana) meditation of the Shambhala Buddhist tradition.
Birth of Shambhala Meditation: At the conclusion of an intensive month-long retreat in 2011, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche strongly experienced the need for humanity to connect to its own worthiness. He then reflected on how his father, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, had expressed to him that the essence of meditation is simply being.
Thus Shambhala meditation arose as the heart of the Shambhala message: feeling worthy to be and touching our basic goodness. The entire vision of Shambhala can be experienced in this simple yet profound practice.
Ashe Acharya John Rockwell is a foremost teacher in the Shambhala tradition. His teaching draws upon years of steeping in the study and experiential exploration of dharma, leadership, social engagement, qigong, and the natural world. He guides students with precision, clarity, humor, and warmth. Acharya Rockwell travels extensively to offer potent training programs for all levels of Shambhala practitioners.
