"We have an actual connection with reality that can actually wake us up and make us feel basically, fundamentally good. Shambhala vision is tuning into our ability to wake ourselves up amd recognize that goodness can happen to us. In fact, it is happening already."
-Chogyam Trungpa

Shambhala Training is organized into weekend workshops that include meditation training and practice, talks by senior instructors, personal interviews and group discussions. Levels I-V provide a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation practice, emphasizing the development of genuineness, confidence, humor, and dignity within the complexity of daily life.

Level I: The Art of being Human  Through the practice of meditation, we glimpse unconditional goodness as the ground of our existence. Opening to ourselves with gentleness and appreciation, we begin to see our potential as genuine and compassionate human beings.
This program is directed by Tom Haynes, of the Atlanta Shambhala Center . A much sought-after senior Shambhala teacher, Tom is known for his perceptive listening and his clarity in communicating the concepts used in Shambhala Training.

Level I is open to all meditators, new or experienced. The tuition for the weekend is $100 for adults, $75 for students. No one will be turned away for financial reasons. Class size is limited, so advance registration is recommended. Contact us at, or by phone at 262-2895.
