Now Available Online: NEW Way of Shambhala Courses
Two courses from the Way of Shambhala curriculum — Basic Goodness 1: Who Am I? and Contentment in Everyday Life — are now available to individuals and groups via Shambhala Online. Designed for those without access to teachers, the online course series features high-quality, recorded talks by senior Shambhala teachers, an online community of participants, and facilitation by experienced course leaders.

Basic Goodness 1: Who Am I? with Kalapa Acharya Adam Lobel begins November 18. In this 6-session course, Acharya Lobel leads participants on a journey of contemplative inquiry focused on the timeless question, "Who am I?" Course participants will learn:
- Buddhist teachings on how our sense of self arises moment by moment provide a reference point.
- Meditation practice is used as a way to contact and express the mind of basic goodness.
- Join a virtual community for discussion, contemplation and dialogue exercises.
