Shambhala Training Level II, Birth of the Warrior
with William Barry
March 1 / 7:30 PM - March 3 / 6:00 PM
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.

This Level of Shambhala Training intensifies the discipline of meditation practice, enabling participants to work with obstacles that may have arisen as meditation practice develops. We also explore how habitual ways of thinking and experiencing obscure the raw brilliance of the world we live in and our own genuineness and tenderness.
As warriors, we learn how to work with the fear that occurs when we move forward out of these habitual patterns.

“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.” Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche
