Birth of a Warrior: Shambhala Training Level II
with Brett Ferrigan
January 17 / 6:30 PM - January 19 / 3:00 PM
Meditation practice allows us to observe how we create a cocoon of habits to mask our fear. We begin to appreciate that there is no fundamental obstacle to experiencing basic goodness.
Birth of the Warrior, the second weekend of the Way of Shambhala series, intensifies the discipline of meditation practice, enabling participants to work with obstacles that may have arisen as meditation practice develops. We also explore how habitual ways of thinking and experiencing obscure the raw brilliance of the world we live in and our own genuineness and tenderness. Finally, we learn how to work with the fear that occurs when we move forward out of these habitual patterns.
The program includes meditation instruction, talks by the Director, group discussions, guided contemplative practice, and individualized instruction.
