A TEN DAY RETREAT AT SHAMBHALA MOUNTAIN CENTER: A TIBETAN/AMERICAN
DHARMA CENTER IN THE COLORADO ROCKIES
Established in 1992 by Michelle Killoran. 2016 is our 25th consecutive year.
3 Credits: CH II Credit and World Cultures Credit. P/NP Only
For those interested in the Eastern Paths of Liberation this is a wonderful opportunity to explore the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism as well as the Sacred Warrior Traditions of Shambhala (a non-religious, secular approach to spirituality). We will be spending 10 days at Shambhala Mountain Center - SMC - located in the spectacular Colorado Rockies. This Is a practice and study lay center not a monastery of monks/nuns (please see www.shambhalamountain.org).
The program revolves around a number of hours each day of meditation, formal dharma talks and dharma art classes. There will also be readings, lectures, discussions and demonstrations of various other contemplative practices. These alter each year--in the past we have had Japanese archery, Japanese tea ceremony, Japanese flower arrangements, Maitri Space Awareness, Native American Sweat Lodge, Warrior walk and Contemplative ecology etc. See samples of previous year’s schedule, attached.
