Umdze Training (Eagle Rock)

with Debra Dysart

October 14th

Date details +
    Room: EAGLE ROCK SHAMBHALA- Main Shrine Room- 963 Colorado Blvd, 90041

    Serving the community as an umdze is a rewarding practice opportunity. It is open to members who have taken Shambhala Training Level III: Warrior in the World or beyond.

    An “umdze” is the time keeper or chant leader for sitting meditation. Being an umdze is an opportunity to deepen your own practice while also serving others. The umdze takes the seat as an elder practitioner, providing an example of all the forms we practice in our lineage. 

    Whether you are currently an umdze who wants to develop further in your practice,  or you would like to learn to umdze and understand all the shrine room forms, you are invited to attend this training. The training is free of charge but please preregister below.  There is no obligation to become an umdze after the training.  We hope to see you there!

    The Shambhala Center of Los Angeles remains open because of the ongoing generosity of our community. One of the cornerstones of our policy is that no one be turned away for lack of funds. If you can’t afford a program, please call our office (323-255-5472) to register based on what you can afford. At the same time, the Center relies on program revenue to cover costs. For those who are able to pay more than the program price, your generosity in paying the Patron Price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price, and provides additional support to the Shambhala Center of Los Angeles. Thank you for your kindness!

    If you cancel more than 7 days prior to your class (and have already paid), you will receive a full refund less a processing fee of $15. If you cancel between 1 to 7 days prior to arrival, we will credit your payment towards another program at Shambhala Los Angeles to be used within 1 year. No refunds or credits are issued for cancellations received fewer than 24 hours prior to arrival.
