Shambhala Training Level III: Warrior in the World

with Jenny Bates
January 31 / 7:30 PM - February 2 / 5:00 PM

Prerequisite: Shambhala Training Level II

In level III, we make an effort to bring 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.

The warrior in the world leaves the stuffiness of the cocoon to explore the world with direct perception. This can be the beginning of a life-long love affair with the phenomenal world – not based on the reference points of hope and fear, gain and loss. Along this journey we develop genuine confidence, humour and personal dignity.

The class includes sitting and walking meditation instruction and practice, discussions, one on one meetings with teachers, and talks.

All prices include breakfast and lunch on Sat. and Sun.  Lodging prices are for one person in shared accomodations.
