Way of Shambhala, Level II: Birth of the Warrior
with Linda Mockeridge
January 12 / 4:00 PM - January 13 / 6:00 PM
Level II looks at how to recognize the habitual patterns that prevent us opening to the experience of basic goodness. How we can feel the fear and do it anyway!
After discovering our basic tenderness and intelligence that arises 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. At the root, fear means the fear of death which means simply the death of “me”.
Ego is the name for all the ideas, images, and feelings we have about who we are or want to be. It is also the root of fear. 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.
