Shambhala Training Level III: Weekend Retreat

June 6 / 7:00 PM - June 8 / 6:00 PM

In Shambhala Training Level III we focus on bringing 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.

Going further beyond the stuffiness of the cocoon, we explore the world with direct perception. This can be the beginning of a life-long love affair with the phenomenal world, one that is not based upon the reference points of hope and fear, gain or loss. Along this journey we continue to develop genuine confidence, humor, and personal dignity.

Prerequisite: Shambhala Training Level II
