Level II: Birth of the Warrior
with Christine Wetzl
December 14 / 9:00 AM - December 15 / 6:00 PM
Shambhala Training is a secular path of spiritual training that develops fearlessness, confidence, openness, and gentle action in the world. This action arises out of meditation practice and the study of Shambhala Warriorship.
Meditation practice allows us to observe how we create a cocoon of habits to mask our fear. We begin to appreciate that there is no fundamental obstacle to experiencing basic goodness. This second weekend of Shambhala Training intensifies the discipline of meditation practice, enabling participants to work with obstacles that may have arisen as meditation practice develops. We also explore how habitual ways of thinking and experiencing obscure the raw brilliance of the world we live in and our own genuineness and tenderness. Finally, we learn how to work with the fear that occurs when we move forward out of these habitual patterns.
