The ideal of warriorship is that the warrior should be sad and tender, and because of that, the warrior can be very brave as well. Real fearlessness is the product of tenderness. It comes from letting the world tickle your heart, your raw and beautiful heart.
—Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
Deepen your meditation practice, and continue along the path of the Shambhala teachings on warriorship, in this weekend retreat.
Warrior in the World: Shambhala Training Level III builds on the presentation of basic goodness in Shambhala Level I, and the teachings on “cocoon” in Shambhala Level II and leads us into an exploration on how to further develop fearlessness. By examining our habitual tendencies, we are willing to experience our life without relying on the cocoon. We begin to engage the world directly and extend an attitude of fearlessness to our activities.
We will extend our meditation practice to build upon the mindfulness-awareness techniques learned in Shambhala Training Levels I and II, and explore real techniques for how to engage in the world with fearlessness and gentleness.
Please Note: We will be joining Shambhala Online for this Hybrid Program. You may choose to do this class from your home, or join us at the Centre.
