Shambhala Training Level II: The Birth of the Warrior


with Jeff Wigman
March 1 / 7:30 PM - March 3 / 5:00 PM

Cultivating the willingness to observe our cocoon of habitual fear and defense mechanisms, in The Birth of the Warrior, we examine our habitual tendencies, fears, and defense mechanisms, building on the foundation of the meditation practice introduced in Level I.


"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
