Shambhala Level II: Birth of the Warrior

with Rick Merrill & Shelley Pierce
May 24 / 6:30 PM - May 26 / 6:00 PM

The Heart of Warriorship program comprises the first five Shambhala Training workshops. These workshops, or "levels," provide a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation practice, emphasizing the development of genuine confidence, humour, and personal dignity within the complexity of daily life.


In the Level II Birth of a Warrior program, we focus on deepening the meditation practice through the cultivation of contentment and simplicity. Through understanding the painful conditions and emotions that keep us trapped in habitual patterns, we can open to our inherent goodness and express the qualities of gentleness, appreciation and steadiness.
