Shambhala Level III Warrior in the World

with Kim Kelso
May 8 / 6:30 PM - May 10 / 4:00 PM

Building on the Shambhala Level II experience, we will explore techniques to further awaken the mind and heart in this Level III weekend. Having developed fearlessness by examining our habitual tendencies, we are now willing to engage everyday life situations and learn to apply our practice to whatever arises. We begin to engage the world directly, extending our view beyond the personal to outward care and communication.  This program provides students with real techniques for raising our gaze and relating to the world around us like warriors.

Prequisite: Must have completed Shambhala Level II
