Shambhala Training Level III - Warrior in the World

with Greg Smith
November 22 / 7:00 PM - November 24 / 6:00 PM

In Level III we work in a deliberate way. 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 upon the reference points of hope and fear, gain or loss. Along this journey we develop genuine confidence, humor and personal dignity.

Prerequisite: This program is open to graduates of Shambhala Training Level II.

The weekend includes meditation training and practice, talks by senior instructors, personal meetings with teachers, and group discussions.

STAFFING: If you've completed Level III, we invite you to volunteer to help staff this program! It also is recommended [but not required] to have taken the "Shambhala Path of Staffing" training.
