About This Event
Prerequisite: The Art of Being Human – Shambhala Training Level I
"Fear is a natural reaction to moving closer to the truth." - Pema Chödron
Birth of the Warrior: Shambhala Training Level II is the second retreat weekend in the renowned Way of Shambhala series. This intimate program provides 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 weekend program 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 our essential nature as wholesome, worthy, and positive. We are good, just as we are. Our practice reveals the courage to embrace our true nature.
About This Weekend:
Birth of the Warrior: Shambhala Training Weekend II introduces a meditation practice that builds on the mindfulness-awareness technique of The Art of Being Human: Shambhala Training Level I. The weekend presents techniques for working with fear and habitual patterns of thought and behavior.
An expereinces Shambhala teacher will incorporate these teachings into the weekend’s talks and meditation instruction. The teacher and a team of meditation instructors will be on hand to personally assist participants with one-on-one interviews and guided group meditation.
