This weekend retreat is being offered through Shambhala Online. We will participate as a group to watch the live-stream teachings — along with in-person practice, discussions and community at the Minneapolis Shambhala Center. The best of both worlds: an outstanding international teacher connected with Centers around the world, received in the community of our own Center!
If you are unable to attend the program at the center, you also have the option of participating via zoom from home.
Deepen your meditation practice, and continue along the path of the Shambhala teachings on warriorship, in this weekend retreat.
Developing 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 the attitude of fearlessness to our activities.

About the Teacher
Elaine Yuen is an educator, chaplain and researcher. She has been a student and teacher in the Shambhala community since the early 1970’s. She was a professor at Naropa University where she taught courses on pastoral caregiving (chaplaincy), contemplative education and Buddhist studies.
The point of Shambhala Training is to get out of the cocoon, which is the shyness and aggression in which we have wrapped ourselves… A Shambhala warrior is someone who is brave enough not to give in to the aggression and contradictions that exist in society…who is able to step out of the cocoon–that very comfortable cocoon that he or she is trying to sleep in.
