Prerequisite: Shambhala Training Weekend II – Awaken Your Inner Warrior

"To be a warrior is to learn to be genuine in every moment of your life." — Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

Warrior in the World: Shambhala Training Level III is the third retreat weekend in the renowned Way of Shambhala series. This program provides instruction for sitting and walking meditation as a means to further awaken the mind and heart, extending mindfulness-awareness practice into all facets of life.

This third Shambhala Training weekend expands on the teachings of Levels I and II.  Having discovered our own goodness and having begun to relax with the nature of fear, we can afford to be more daring, open, and genuine. With gentle fearlessness, we learn to step out of our conditioning and open to the freshness of each new moment.

We continue to relate to our perceptions and our world directly through meditation practice, and we further develop our capacity to relate to others and our environment with humor, kindness and strength.

About This Weekend:

Warrior in the World: Shambhala Training Weekend III introduces a meditation practice that builds upon the mindfulness-awareness techniques of Shambhala Training Weekends I and II, inviting students to open further to their environment and sense perceptions.

An expereinced Shambhala teacher
will incorporate these teachings into the weekend’s talks and meditation instruction. The teacher and a team of meditation instructors will be on hand to personally assist participants with one-on-one interviews and guided group meditation.

Weekend Includes:

  • Guided meditation practice

  • Meditation/Wisdom talks from a senior teacher

  • One-on-one meditation instruction

  • Concluding Sunday reception

We encourage Level III participants to also take Joy in Everyday Life, a companion course to this program on 5 weekday evenings.
