As we deepen our practice of meditation, noticing and learning to work with our habitual
patterns, we begin to discover fearlessness - the birth of warriorship. In this retreat, Birth of the 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, dharma talks by 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 practice. Attendance is required for the Friday night talk and for each session of the program.
