Shambhala Training Level II: Birth of the Warrior

with Michael Ratener
February 8 / 6:30 PM - February 10 / 6:00 PM

The point of Shambhala Training is to get out of the cocoon, which is the shyness and aggression in which we have wrapped ourselves… A Shambhala warrior is someone who is brave enough not to give in to the aggression and contradictions that exist in society…who is able to step out of the cocoon--that very comfortable cocoon that he or she is trying to sleep in. -- Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

Registration at 6:30 pm, program begins at 7 pm.

In Shambhala Training Level II: Birth of the Warrior, we learn to recognize habitual patterns and discover fearlessness. Having experienced a taste of basic goodness, we want to go forward. Meditation practice allows us to observe how we create a cocoon of habits to mask our fear. We begin to appreciate that there is no fundamental obstacle to experiencing basic goodness and discovering fearlessness.

Prerequisite:  Level I: The Art of Being Human
