Birth of the Warrior: Level II Shambhala Weekend Retreat (online)
with Veit Weber & Linda Kreger
April 16 / 7:00 PM - April 18 / 6:00 PM
Having discovered our basic goodness through our meditation practice in Level I: The Art of Being Human, in the second Shambhala Training weekend retreat, Birth of a Warrior, we explore what blocks us from awakening to our full potential.
The emphasis in this retreat is a gentle examination of how we use our habits to mask our fear. Through our meditation practice we gradually begin to appreciate that there is no fundamental obstacle to experiencing basic goodness.
This weekend provides a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation practice, with an emphasis on the development of genuine confidence, humor, and personal dignity within the complexity of daily life.
Every Shambhala Training level includes meditation instruction, meditation practice, one-on-one meetings to clarify questions, talks by senior teachers, group discussions and a concluding reception. The Shambhala Training retreats are suitable for new and experienced meditators, as well as for those looking to enrich their existing spiritual tradition. The retreats offer both teachings and an opportunity for in-depth meditation
