Pre-requisite: Shambhala Training Level I

In the Level II Birth of a Warrior program, we focus on deepening the meditation practice through the cultivation of contentment and simplicity. Through understanding the painful conditions and emotions that keep us trapped in habitual patterns, we can open to our inherent goodness and express the qualities of gentleness, appreciation and steadiness.

Shambhala Training is a path to develop the dignity of being human, using meditation as a means to develop fearlessness, confidence, openness, and gentleness toward ourselves and toward our world. The second in a series of trainings, Level II includes instruction on meditation, talks by the director, individual meetings with teachers, discussions with other participants, and a concluding reception.

Companion Course: Contentment in Everyday Life is a five-week course that complements the training in Level II.
