Birth of the Warrior is Level II in the Shambhala Training curriculum. It builds on the foundation of the meditation practice that was introduced in Level I and explores how habitual ways of thinking obscure the raw brilliance of the world we live in.
By opening to our own genuineness and tenderness, we learn how to work with fear to cultivate the willingness to see our deep-seated habits and defenses. This program intensifies the discipline of meditation practice, which enables us to begin seeing through obscurations of habitual patterns that we have created over time.
The online version of this program is offered on three Saturdays, with two Thursday evening sitting sessions to provide adequate time for meditation practice.
Prerequisite: Shambhala Training Level I: The Art of Being Human
