Level II: Birth of the Warrior

with Brett Ferrigan
November 22 / 7:00 PM - November 24 / 5:00 PM

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.

Birth of the Warrior, the second weekend of the Way of Shambhala 1 series, intensifies the discipline of meditation practice, enabling participants to work with obstacles that may have arisen as meditation practice develops. We also explore how habitual ways of thinking and experiencing obscure the raw brilliance of the world we live in and our own genuineness and tenderness. Finally, we learn how to work with the fear that occurs when we move forward out of these habitual patterns.

Pre-requisite: The Art of Being Human:  Shambhala Training Level I.

Birth of the Warrior (Level II) is a pre-requisite for Warrior in the World (Level III) and is the second step in the Way of Shambhala 1 series.
