Birth of the Warrior

April 13-15, 2017

Brunswick Shambhala Center

19 Mason Street, Brunswick

This second-weekend program in the Way of Shambhala Training path provides a deepening of instruction for sitting and walking meditation as a means to explore how we can free ourselves from the patterns that repress our brilliance, compassion, and mindfulness.

Having tasted the experience of basic goodness in the first-weekend retreat, we long to move forward.

Deepening our meditation practice allows us to observe how we personally create a cocoon of habits to mask our fear. These habits trap us and prevent us from experiencing the full potential of our lives. Through meditation, we begin to appreciate that there is no fundamental obstacle to experiencing basic goodness.

Shambhala Training Weekend II: Birth of the Warrior introduces a meditation practice that builds upon the mindfulness-awareness technique of Shambhala Training Weekend I. The weekend provides students with real techniques for working with fear and habitual patterns of thought and behavior.

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

 

About Shambhala Training

Shambhala Training offers a structured path of meditation and emotional intelligence education rooted in the ancient wisdom of the Shambhala tradition and created for the challenges of modern, everyday existence.

The Shambhala Training path consists of weekly classes and weekend retreats suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators, and open to people of any spiritual tradition.

This comprehensive overview of mindfulness meditation and contemplative living practices presents the view that when we foster a more awake relationship with ourselves we are creating a more awake and compassionate world.
