The Art of Being Human explores the view that human beings, at the core, are fundamentally awake. Through training in meditation we learn to let go of habitual patterns, drop our attachment to how things “should” be, and begin to truly appreciate things as they are. Wakefulness is not about escaping the world we live in but rather it is about entering our lives more fully. This begins with taking time to learn how to appreciate our true humanity — our sense perceptions, our feelings, and minds.

This mini-retreat provides students with basic instruction for sitting meditation as a means to develop mindfulness in daily life. Senior Shambhala Teacher Shastri Debbie McCubbin will present these topics and provide instructions for basic mindfulness-awareness meditation practice including working with posture, the breath and relating to thoughts.

The Art of Being Human course includes:
- Guided meditation instruction
- Mindfulness meditation teachings
- Mindfulness-awareness practices

There is no prerequisite and no meditation experience is required. All are welcome.
