Years Meditation: 16
How has meditation been of benefit to you? My mind and emotions have become more and more stable over the years of having a regular meditation practice. The positive effects in my life are numerous, including greater clarity of thought, less reactiveness, more resilience, and more enjoyment of simple moments.
How has Seattle Shambhala been of benefit to you? Shambhala has become my spiritual community. I often feel like I’m coming home when I come to the Seattle center. I learn so much by being around others who are on a similar spiritual path. And it’s a fun group of people!
What’s your favorite activity, open house night, holiday or other center program? and why? Sunday mornings are awesome– a great mix of meditation, community, and food.
What was your first experience at Shambhala like? It felt foreign at first, but also very warm and welcoming. After a while, it didn’t feel so foreign.
