We would like to offer this Shambhala Training retreat free to everyone! We need as many people as possible cultivating basic sanity in the year ahead – able to respond to challenges with genuineness, confidence, humor and dignity. We ask that you commit to attend the full weekend, and to let us know if you won’t be able to attend.
Registration is still required so we can prepare for the program. We hope you will join us!
Warrior in the World helps us to develop confidence in all aspects of our daily lives. Bringing the mindfulness and awareness of meditation practice into everyday life, alive to our sense perceptions, we can venture into the world with a vulnerability that is fearless, gentle, and awake.
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. This takes daring.
Through daring and gentleness, we open to a clear perception of the world and its feedback. In doing so, our fixation on our own point of view relaxes, and we learn that we can work with whatever situation arises.

Registration Please register with an email you check regularly. We will send important information about the program to you via email and don’t want you to miss it.
You will not receive an email right away. Participants will receive a confirmation email within 24 hours of registration, and a confirmation email with program details approximately 1 week before the program begins. Sometimes emails may end up in your promotions, spam or junk folder. It’s also possible that you’ve unsubscribed from emails from Shambhala, which prevents you from receiving the necessary emails. If you don’t receive the confirmation email, please contact [email protected].
Price – Our standard price is $185 for the weekend, but our primary goal in offering these foundational teachings is to make them accessible to everyone who feels it would be beneficial. We are waiving the price for this program. If you are able, we welcome donations, but none are required or expected.
In-person participation As an in-person event, all participants must agree to abide by the Shambhala Center’s current Coronavirus Precautions Policy. Additionally, we ask you to limit the use of scented products, as many people have chemical sensitivities. Note that our building is not wheelchair accessible.
