About this Program
This intimate program provides a deepening of instruction for sitting and walking meditation as a means to explore how we can free ourselves from the patterns that repress the brilliant, compassionate, mindful warrior within.
This second Shambhala Training Weekend presents the view that when we open up to our own genuineness, we can begin to work directly with our fears. Through tenderness, we can meet life's challenging moments, not with distractions and self-aggression, but with courage and confidence.
By relating to fear through meditation practice, we begin to appreciate that there isn't actually anything fundamentally wrong with us. We are good, just as we are, right here and now. We can discover and cultivate the bravery necessary to embrace our true nature.
About Weekend II
"Shambhala Training Weekend II: Discover Your Inner Warrior" (aka Birth of the Warrior) introduces a meditation practice that builds upon the mindfulness-awareness technique of Shambhala Training Weekend I. The weekend provides students with real techniques for working with fear and habitual patterns of thought and behavior.
Our senior Shambhala teacher will incorporate these teachings into the weekend’s talks and meditation instruction. Our teacher and a team of meditation instructors will be on hand to personally assist participants with one-on-one sessions and guided group meditation.
Shambhala Training Weekend II includes:
Guided meditation practice
One-on-one sessions with a senior instructor
Concluding Sunday reception
