I attended a two day class at Shambhala and I left the class after the first day. Katherine Kaufman is not a yoga instructor. She did no yoga at all, only sat in the middle of the class acting like a high queen. She was very rude to several people attending and I was appalled at the attitude of some of the employees at the center. If this is a buddhist retreat, then I don't want to go there again. Prices are completely ridiculous and the fact that you cannot take your dog on a leash with you to the Stupa is insane. Also, the fees for classes is not something I think the Buddha would have agreed with. This is a place for snobby rich people pretending to practice buddhism. However, if you can get passed the insanity of the so-called practicing buddhists, then the hike up to the Stupa is definitely worth the drive to Red Feather. If you take away the un-awakened teachers and staff then you have a peaceful environment. Just don't stay there and attend anything. Take the hike and go on in peace!
