Birth of the Warrior – Shambhala Training Level 2

con Gabriela Córdova Novion

September 6 - 8, 2024

Having experienced a taste of basic goodness, we want to go forward. 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.

Shambhala Training Level 2: Birth of the Warrior is a weekend program that includes meditation instruction and practice, lectures, group discussion and individual meetings with a meditation instructor. The program is open to all people of all religious traditions as well as those who do not follow a particular spiritual path.

Prerequisite: Students are required to have participated in Level 1: The Art of Being Human.

Shambhala Training is the study and practice of Shambhala warriorship: living fearlessly in the present moment with open hearts and compassion towards all. It is founded on the teachings of Chogyam Trungpa as presented in the book, Shambhala: Sacred Path of the Warrior and it emphasizes the simple and profound technique of mindfulness and awareness meditation to help us realize our own potential and create a good human society on this earth.
