Program Details

Shambhala Training Level II: Birth of a Warrior


September 19 / 7:00 PM - September 21 / 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.


Prerequisite: Shambhala Training Level I


Our Generosity Policy


In order to make our programs accessible to everyone, we have a “pay what you can afford” policy. If the program price is an obstacle for you, please decide what works for you and offer whatever you can.


For those who can offer more than the program price, we have a “patron price”. Your generosity in offering the patron price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price.
