Shambhala Training Level II: Birth of the Warrior

with Shastri Andrea Darby

June 25 - 27

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 II: Birth of the Warrior

Intensify the discipline of meditation practice, which enables us to work with the obstacles that arise as meditation practice develops. Explore how habitual ways of thinking and experiencing obscure the raw brilliance of the world we live in and our own genuineness and tenderness. Moving forward out of these habitual patterns, we learn to work with the fear that arises.
