Open to graduates of Shambhala Training Level II.

In level III, we make an effort to bring the mindfulness and awareness cultivated during our meditation practice into all aspects of our daily life. When we become awake to our sense perceptions, we can venture into the world with confidence and a vulnerability that is fearless, gentle, and alive.

The warrior in the world leaves the stuffiness of the cocoon to explore the world with direct perception. This can be the beginning of a life-long love affair with the phenomenal world – not based on the reference points of hope and fear, gain and loss. Along this journey we develop genuine confidence, humour and personal dignity.



Parlan McGaw has been a student of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche since 1988. He is an actor and editor. In addition to teaching here at the Shambhala Center, he has been using meditative techniques to help actors deepen and enrich their work since 2005, when he codirected the first of two weeklong retreats for actors with master teacher Michael Howard at Karme Choling Meditation Center in Vermont. He has since taught programs for actors at Shantigar Retreat Center in Massachusetts, Villanova University, the Michael Chekhov Acting Studio, the Michael Howard Studios, and the Interdependence Project in New York.
