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 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.

Birth of the Warrior is the second training in the 2022 5-training series.  The remaining programs are:

June 3-5:  Warrior in the World with Craig Sargent (hybrid from Lexington, KY)

September 9-11:  Awakened Heart with Jackie Muse (hybrid from Atlanta, GA)

December 9-11:  Open Sky with Janet Bronstein (hybrid from Birmingham, AL)

The program includes meditation instruction, talks by the Director, group discussions, guided contemplative practice, and individualized instruction.

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