Warrior in the World: the Heart of Warriorship, Level 3

with Shastri Bill Brauer

May 16 - 19


Having learned not to turn away from fear, we can extend this strength into everyday life situations. We learn that we can apply our practice to whatever arises, developing more confidence in all aspects of our world.

Warrior in the World (Heart of Warriorship, Level 3), provides a meditation practice that builds upon the mindfulness-awareness technique of The Birth of the Warrior (Level 2) to further awaken the mind and heart. With gentle fearlessness, we learn to step beyond our conditioning and open to the freshness of each new moment.

We continue to relate to our perceptions and our world directly through meditation practice, and we further develop our capacity to relate to others and our environment with humor, kindness, and strength.

With the guidance of a senior Shambhala teacher and a group of experienced meditation instructors, you will learn a meditation practice that builds upon the technique learned in Birth of the Warrior (Level 2). This program provides students with real techniques for raising our gaze and relating to the world around us like warriors

Warrior in the World (Level 3) includes:
• Guided meditation instruction
• Mindfulness meditation talks
• Optional one-on-one meditation instruction
• Mindfulness movement exercises
• Concluding festive banquet
