The Art of Being Human: Shambhala Training Level One for Youth (Ages 12-18)

with Acharya Alan Schwartz

Teen Level 1

Through the practice of meditation, we begin to realize that we are worthy just as we are.

Saturday and Sunday
October 28th and 29th

9:00 AM to 5:00 PM

Opening to ourselves with curiosity, gentleness, and appreciation, we are able to relax and be genuine. We thus learn how to live meaningful lives and feel connected to ourselves and others. Meditation also helps us with school, friendships, sports, and relationships.

This weekend-long program includes meditation instruction with periods of sitting and walking practice, talks, group discussion and personal meeting times.

The instruction and practices will be offered in a relevant way specifically geared toward youth ages 12 to 18, and participation is restricted to humans within this age group.
