Shambhala Training Level II: Birth of the Warrior


with Sue Gilman
March 1 / 7:30 PM - March 3 / 6:00 PM

After discovering our basic tenderness and intelligence that arise through contacting our basic goodness, we also discover why we close down to our fundamental nature. Afraid of our brilliance, afraid of our own fear, we create a cocoon of habitual tendencies and interpretations that keeps us distracted. Ego is the name for all the ideas, images, and feelings we have about who we are or want to be. Stepping out of the cocoon of “me” is a slow process of learning about fear. Through relating properly and thoroughly to fear we discover that the way out is through the way in.


This is the second weekend retreat of the Way of Shambhala path of training. It pairs well with the course Contentment in Everyday Life.
