Shambhala Training Level III: Warrior in the World

with Brian McCorkle
April 12 / 7:00 PM - April 14 / 6:00 PM

Having learned not to turn away from fear, we can extend that practice into everyday life situations without the barrier of the cocoon. This takes daring. Through daring and gentleness, we open to a clear perception of the world and its feedback. In doing so, our fixation on our own point of view relaxes, and we learn that we can work with whatever situation arises.

In Shambhala Training Level III: Warrior in the World, we begin to develop confidence in all aspects of our daily life.
