Shambhala Training III: Warrior in the World
Friday December 15th, 7-9pm Mountain TIme
Saturday & Sunday, December 16th & 17th, 9am-6pm Mountain Time
This is a hybrid person (in-person and over Zoom)
In Shambhala Training III, we work in a deliberate way, making an effort to bring the mindfulness and awareness cultivated in our meditation practice into all aspects of daily life. When we become awake to our sense perceptions, we can venture into the world with confidence and vulnerability that is fearless, gentle, and alive.
The warrior begins to expand awareness to explore the world with direct perception. This can be the beginning of a lifelong love affair with the phenomenal world, one not based on the reference points of hope and fear or gain and loss. Along this journey we develop genuine confidence, humor, and personal dignity.
Every Shambhala Training program includes thorough meditation instruction, periods of meditation practice, one-on-one meetings to clarify questions, talks by senior teachers, group discussions and a concluding reception.
Prerequisites: Shambhala Training I and II
Shambhala Training provides in-depth meditation retreats and teachings. Attendance is required for each session of the program.
About the Way of Shambhala
The Way of Shambhala includes Shambhala Training programs I–V, with each training followed by a five-week “In Everyday Life” course that expands upon what was offered in the training. Over the course of a year, these programs introduce the entire Shambhala path. This series offers a glimpse of the Shambhala vision of enlightened society by emphasizing how meditation can impact our daily lives—and from there, how the sanity of meditation can impact our community and our whole society. Joy in Everyday Life is recommended either before or after Shambhala Training III. Please click here for a full description of the Way of Shambhala.
