Room: Main Shrine Room

The Art of Being Human introduces the concept of basic goodness as the unconditional ground of existence. Through the practice of meditation we experience the realization that basic goodness provides an alternative to being trapped in repetitive habitual patterns. This, in turn, brings us a sense of joy and appreciation of what it means to be fully human.

We are always willing to work with financial obstacles and find alternative means for paying for programs. No one will be turned away due to the inability to pay the full cost of the program.

The director for this program will be Richard Sylvester. Richard had the good fortune of being introduced to the Shambhala community, in Connecticut, in 1978. Becoming a practitioner, while finishing up his graduate studies in psychology, set a clear course for his future and continuing practice as a psychotherapist. Richard is a senior teacher in the Shambhala Buddhist sangha, jazz musician and the proud grandfather of two beautiful, teenage granddaughters. Susan Shuffman will serve as assistant director.
