    Are you curious about meditation? Are you wondering how does meditation relate to reclaiming what it means to be human?

This talk is the introduction to a weekend Level I program on Saturday March 9th and Sunday March 10th. The Friday evening talk is a unique opportunity to come and bring a friend and learn more about meditation and Shambhala. Following this Friday evening, a full program will be offered on Saturday and Sunday.

    "Our life is an endless journey. It is like a broad highway that extends infinitely into the distance. The practice of meditation provides a vehicle to travel on that road. Our journey consists of ups & downs, hope & fear, but it is a good journey. The practice of meditation allows us to experience all the textures of the roadway, which is what the journey is all about. Through the practice of meditation, we begin to find that within ourselves there is no fundamental complaint about anything or anyone at all." -- Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
