Level II : Birth of the Warrior
with Helen Bennett & Loretta Geuenich
August 23 / 7:00 PM - August 25 / 6:00 PM
Shambhala Training Level II builds on the foundation of the meditation practice that was introduced in Level I and explores how our habitual ways of thinking obscure the raw brilliance of the world. By opening to our own genuineness and tenderness, we learn how to work with fear.
This weekend develops a meditation practice, enabling participants to begin to see through habitual patterns that have been created over time and which limit the ability to engage fully in the world.
Shambhala Training is a path to develop the dignity of being human, using meditation as a means to develop fearlessness, confidence, openness, and gentleness toward ourselves and toward our world. The second in a series of trainings, Level Two includes instruction on meditation, talks, individual meetings with teachers, discussions with other participants, which provides the opportunity to explore thes rich teachings with others.
