Shambhala Path Meditation Instructor (SPMI)
The Shambhala Meditation Group of Adelaide and Shambhala International are pleased to offer a training program for Shambhala Educators who feel inspired and ready to continue along the path of helping others on their meditative journeys.
When we support students along the Shambhala path, we are bringing together the Shambhala principle of basic goodness and meditation practices that are the distillation of thousands of years of practitioners’ experience. We are helping others to recognize that meditation is a portal through which we can discover our innate human capacity for wakefulness, wisdom and compassion—and to learn how to bring those qualities into our lives, creating good human society.
Skillfully guiding others in the journey of meditation requires knowledge based on studying view and practices of meditation, as well as on deep personal experience. The SPMI needs to be able to authentically meet each student where they are and provide the appropriate next step on the path of meditation, and to do this in an environment of kindness, acceptance and understanding.
This training offers a strong foundation in knowledge and skills essential to being a Shambhala Path Meditation Instructor. We will review the fundamental teachings of meditation, and study and practice how to support students both within and between the Way of Shambhala programs and courses. Participants also will deepen their understanding of the practices of listening, reflection and inquiry, and will practice ways in which to bring these skills into their work with students.
