CONGRATULATIONS! YOU MADE IT THROUGH LEVEL ONE! We invite you connect further with the experience of Basic Goodness and explore how meditation practice can help us to step out of our habitual patterns of escape and fear.


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


Open to graduates of Shambhala Training Level I.


NOTE: The program will not go forward unless we have at least 10 registrations with deposit by Monday, Jan 14, 2013 . If you register and the program is canceled, you'll be contacted by a Shambhala Training representative.
