The “Heart of Warriorship” Shambhala Training curriculum consists of five weekend programmes that include meditation training and practice, talks by senior instructors, personal interviews and group discussions. These five weekends provide a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation practice, emphasizing the development of genuineness, confidence, humour, and dignity within the complexity of daily life.
This second weekend focuses on developing precision in our meditation practice, which helps us recognize habitual patterns and underlying fears. This helps us learn to trust our underlying basic goodness and relax into a more open way of being. There are talks, discussion groups, group and one-on-one meditation instruction. A light breakfast is provided on Saturday and Sunday.
