Level II – The Birth Of The Warrior

February 7th – 9th, with Robert Ziegler


Maybe we experienced a taste of basic goodness during Level I, or maybe we’re not so sure. But we remain curious and want to go forward. In Level II, we will review the notion of basic goodness, and explore how we habitually obscure our experience and buffer ourselves. Through this exploration, we begin to appreciate that there are no insurmountable obstacles to experiencing life fully and clearly.


The weekend will begin with a talk on Friday evening.  Saturday and Sunday will have sitting, talks and contemplations.  The weekend concludes with a lunchtime celebration on Sunday.


Prerequisite: Shambhala Training Level I


Friday evening:  7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Saturday 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM (please bring a brown bag lunch)

Sunday 8:30 AM – 1:00 PM (please bring something for a celebratory pot luck)


Program cost:  $135 (includes HST) 

We continue to offer a generosity policy for those who wish to attend but have financial constraints, please contact the registrar in advance.


For more information, please contact Danielle at

More details will come out next week.

Levels I-V provide a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation practice, emphasizing the development of genuineness, confidence, humour and dignity within the complexity of daily life.
