Shambhala Training Level II: Birth of the Warrior

with Agness Au
April 19 / 7:00 PM - April 21 / 5:00 PM

In this program, we examine our habitual tendencies, fears, and defense mechanisms. Building on the foundation of the meditation practice we introduced in Shambhala Training Level I, we learn to work with the fear that occurs when we move forward out of the habitual patterns which obscure the raw brilliance of the world we live in as well as our own genuineness and tenderness.

PREREQUISITE: Completion of Shambhala Training Level I is required for attendance at this level.
