Combination Way of Shambhala Level I: Art of Being Human and Level II: Birth of the Warrior

with Linda Mockeridge
August 16 / 7:00 PM - August 18 / 6:00 PM

Would you like to slow down and connect with yourself and others in a fresh way?  Join us for this introduction to the Shambhala teachings.  The only prerequisite is curiousity. 

The weekend program includes Shambhala Training Levels I and II.  The weekend will include meditation instruction and practice, teaching and discussion.

The Art of Being Human Level I  emphasizes the importance of developing tenderness and gentleness to ourselves.  By first accepting our own basic goodness, we can appreciate the basic goodness of others.   Treating ourselves gently and kindly can have a profound effect on how we view the world. 

 Birth of the Warrior Level II leads us to begin to explore the habitual patterns and defense mechanisms that we develop in order to protect ourselves from the fearful situations that arise in life. We begin to see that we no longer have to hide from the world but can approach life with freshness and openness and bravery. 

Shambhala Training is organized into five weekend workshops that include meditation training and practice, talks by senior instructors, personal interviews, and group discussions.  Levels I and II are being offered over one weekend for the price of one program.

Shastri Linda Mockeridge leads this weekend program.  Visiting from San Antonio, Ms Mockeridge is a shastri or senior teacher in the Shambhala tradition.  Her teaching is filled with insight and humor. 


Participants should be aware that they must attend all parts of a Level, i.e., the entire Level, in order to receive credit for completion of the Level, which is a prerequisite to attend the next Level.
