Shambhala Training Weekend III: Warrior In The World

About us

Prerequisite: Shambhala Training Weekend II: Discover Your Inner Warrior

Shambhala Training Weekend III is the third retreat weekend in the highly acclaimed Shambhala Training curriculum. Completion of Shambhala Training Weekend II is a prerequisite for this program.

"To be a warrior is to learn to be genuine in every moment of your life." - Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche 

About this Program 

Having discovered our own goodness and having begun to relax with the nature of fear, we can afford to be more daring, open, and genuine. 

Shambhala Training Weekend III provides a meditation practice 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. 

About Weekend III

Shambhala Training Weekend III: Warrior in the World introduces a meditation practice that builds upon the mindfulness-awareness technique of Shambhala Training Weekend II. The weekend provides students with a means to raise our gaze and relate to the world around us, like warriors.  

Our senior Shambhala teacher will incorporate these teachings into the weekend’s talks and meditation instruction. A team of meditation instructors will be on hand to personally assist participants with one-on-one interviews and guided group meditation.

Shambhala Training Weekend III includes: 

  • Guided meditation practice

  • Meditation talks

  • One-on-one sessions with a senior instructor

  • Concluding Sunday reception

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

So that I am rejuvenated to be the best I can be in my relationships - personal, work and in Society - offering and giving to be of benefit to others! Laura
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
