As Warriors in the World we are able to develop bravery in order to step outside the self-created cocoons of our habitual patterns and fear.




"Shambhala vision teaches that, in the face of the world's greatest problems, we can be heroic and kind at the same time. Shambhala vision is the opposite of selfishness. When we are afraid of ourselves and afraid of the seeming threat the world presents, then we become extremely selfish. We want to build our own little nests, our own cocoons, so that we can live by ourselves in a secure way. But we can be much more brave than that." – Chögyam Trungpa


Open to graduates of Shambhala Training Level II.
