Shambhala Training Level II: Birth of the Warrior


with John Smythe
October 25 / 7:00 PM - October 27 / 5:00 PM

Having experienced a taste of basic goodness in Level I, we want to learn more. Meditation practice allows us to observe how we create a cocoon of habits to mask underlying fear. We begin to appreciate that there is no fundamental obstacle to experiencing basic goodness. 


In Level II, we use meditation practice to observe more directly how our habitual fear and anxiety can lose its power when confronted directly, in an atmosphere of gentleness. We begin to appreciate that there is no fundamental obstacle to experiencing basic goodness.


Just like Level I, this weekend includes individual and group meditation instruction, teachings by a senior director, and opportunities to socialize with fellow participants.
