Weekend Warrior Training I for BIPOC

  • Shambhala Meditation Center of Seattle (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Join Dr. Claudelle Glasgow for a weekend meditation retreat for BIPOC.   As Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, our fundamental ground of innate goodness is challenged on a daily basis in several spheres of our existence.  This can bring a seemingly fundamental ground of stress and negativity into our lives. This practice will offer opportunities through combining meditation and the arts to continually access that goodness in the face of racial oppressions with gentleness and appreciation.

This program introduces the practice of meditation and the basic principles of the Shambhala teachings.  Through the practice of meditation, we begin to glimpse that innate goodness, rather than confusion, labels, and conditioning, as the unconditional ground of our existence.

This program is open to those who identify as people of color. No previous experience with meditation is necessary.

Prerequisites: This program is open to those who identify as black, indigenous, and people of color. No previous experience with meditation is necessary.

Schedule (subject to change):

Saturday 8AM - 5PM

Ray Warren Symposium on Race and Ethnic Studies: Mental Health is Not Just for White People

Panel description: What does mental health look like for people of color? In what ways have mental health care systems focused on white people, and what have been the consequences? This panel will raise questions about the cultural exclusivity of “mental health,” asking who has access to a doctor’s diagnosis or to an education about mental illness. We will also examine how racism affects mental health treatment and produces higher rates of medical conditions that generate significant psychological challenges. Additionally, this panel will explore responses within communities of color to develop transformative practices and new resources.

Weekend Warrior Training: Warrior in the World

Prerequisite: Level 2 Retreat

Since we have discovered our own goodness and begun to relax with the nature of fear, we can afford to be more daring. With gentle fearlessness, we learn to step beyond our conditioning and open to the freshness of each new moment. The third weekend of Shambhala Training is all about becoming intimate with human bravery. 

At this point on the path, the warrior leaves the stuffiness of the cocoon and explores the world with direct perception. This can be the beginning of a life-long love affair with the phenomenal world, one not based on the reference points of gain and loss, but seeing things as they are. Along this journey we develop genuine confidence, humor, and personal dignity.

Shambhala Training Weekend III provides an expanded meditation practice for relating more with space and our environment, further awakening the mind and heart. This technique helps us to bring mindfulness and awareness into all aspects of our daily life.

When we become awake to our sense perceptions, we can venture into the world with confidence and vulnerability that is fearless, gentle, and alive.
