Shambhala Training Level III: Warrior in the World

with Acharya Michael Greenleaf

March 7 - 10

Shambhala Training is a series of contemplative workshops, suited for both beginning and experienced meditators. The simple and profound technique of mindfulness and awareness is the basis of a secular path of meditation, which can benefit people of any spiritual tradition. Shambhala Training is the study and practice of Shambhala warriorship, the tradition of human bravery and leadership. This path shows how to take the challenges of daily life in our modern society as opportunities for contemplative practice and social action.

Level III: Warrior in the World

Bring the mindfulness and awareness of meditation practice into everyday life. Alive to our sense perceptions, we can venture into the world with a vulnerability that is fearless, gentle, and awake.
