Jeffrey Stevens serves as Shastri, a senior teacher at the Shambhala Meditation Center of Denver.  Shastri Jeffrey Stevens is a longtime student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, and he began studying and practicing the Shambhala Buddhist path in 1992. He has an academic background in philosophy, anthropology, and Indo-Tibetan Buddhism. His occasionally humorous teaching style emphasizes a precise understanding of the mechanics of meditation, and he encourages students to articulate what they have learned with each new step in their education.
