Shambhala Training Levels I, II and III


with Lance Brunner & Charlotte Brookes & Margaret Hughes
October 12 / 9:00 AM - October 17 / 4:30 PM

Shambhala Training is a series of contemplative workshops, suited for both beginning and experienced meditators. The simple and profound technique of mindfulness and awareness is the basis of a secular path of meditation, which can benefit people of any spiritual tradition and way of life. Shambhala Training is the study and practice of Shambhala warriorship—the tradition of human bravery and leadership. This path shows how to take the challenges of daily life in our modern society as opportunities for both contemplative practice and social action.


Level I: The Art of Being Human


Through the practice of meditation, we glimpse unconditional goodness as the ground of our existence. Opening to ourselves with gentleness and appreciation, we begin to see our potential as genuine and compassionate human beings.


Level II: Birth of the Warrior


Having experienced a taste of basic goodness, we want to go forward. 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.


Level III: Warrior in the World


Developing fearlessness by examining our habitual tendencies, we are willing to experience our life without relying on the cocoon. We begin to engage the world directly and extend the attitude of fearlessness to our activities.


The course will be taught by Senior Shambhala Teacher Lance Brunner. Lance is known for his open and creative teaching style and for teaching the Dharma Art disciplines within Shambhala.
