About Birth of the Warrior: Shambhala Training, Level II

In this, the second in the series of Shambhala Training weekend workshops, we cultivate our willingness to observe our cocoon of habitual fear and defence mechanisms. We begin to appreciate that there is no fundamental obstacle to experiencing basic goodness.

"The point of the Shambhala Training is to get out of the cocoon, which is the shyness and aggression in which we have wrapped ourselves." — Chögyam Trungpa

The program includes meditation instruction and practice, formal talks on the Shambhala teachings, group discussion, and personal interviews.

About the Way of Shambhala

This course is the second course in the Way of Shambhala series, which offers a structured path of meditation and a complete introduction to the foundations of Shambhala Buddhism. Open to people of any spiritual tradition, this series provides a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation practice, wisdom teachings, and physical practices rooted in the ancient traditions of Shambhala and Tibetan Buddhism.
