The Annapolis Royal Shambhala group is hosting a weekend public talk and retreat with Moh Hardin in Sept. This year the focus is on meditation, including working with what we have, such as our thoughts and emotions (rather than trying to get rid of them).
Hope to see you there,
Shambhala Meditation – Proclaiming Basic Goodness
With Acharya Moh Hardin, a senior teacher in the Shambhala Buddhist lineage.
Public Talk: Friday, September 16 7–9 pm (Free will offering)
Retreat: Sat & Sun, Sept 17 & 18 9am–5pm
Both events will be at the Granville Ferry Community Hall
The entire vision of Shambhala can be experienced in the simple yet profound practice of Shambhala Meditation. It connects us directly with our basic goodness and awakens us to the fullness of our humanity. Shambhala Meditation is the heart of the Shambhala message: feeling worthy to be, and touching our basic goodness.
In this pilot weekend program, we have the opportunity to explore and practice Sakyong Mipham’s teachings on Shambhala Meditation, including the three stages of feeling, being, and touching, and how to work with our body, mind, thoughts, and emotions. It is open to everyone. You do not have to be a member or have previous meditation experience. If you have practiced Shambhala Meditation before, this is an opportunity to deepen your understanding and experience. If you have practiced Shambhala Meditation at a longer retreat, this is an opportunity to refresh the transmission and share your experience with others. A good mix of new and experienced practitioners will make this a very enriching retreat for all.
Suggested Donation for the retreat is $85, including lunch. Money should not be the cause of anyone missing these teachings, so please pay what you can afford.
