Weekend Retreat 1 of the Shambhala Training Series

Through the practice of meditation, we begin to glimpse that goodness—rather than confusion—is the unconditional ground of our existence. Opening to ourselves with gentleness and appreciation, we begin to see our potential as genuine and compassionate human beings. 

 

 Shastri Ben Hines     

Shastri Ben Hines first encountered Shambhala in 1981 in a series of four talks called “Awakened Heart.” With a lifelong interest in how society works, Ben’s life has been deeply marked by meditation and the Shambhala teachings and by the example of the Sakyongs, each of whom present the highest possibilities of society as a path for the expression of dignity, nobility and sacred outlook. Ben mixed meditation practice with a career in construction and retired from Habitat for Humanity in 2010. Appointed as Shastri in 2010, he is married, a father of two, with three grandchildren.
