Birth of the Warrior - Shambhala Training Weekend II looks at how we can open up to our own genuineness, and thereby begin to work directly with our fears. Through tenderness, we can meet life's challenging moments, not with distractions and self-aggression, but with courage and confidence.

This Shambhala Training weekend retreat provides instruction for sitting and walking meditation, and helps us connect with our inner strength and bravery. We will explore how we can free ourselves from the patterns that repress the brilliant, compassionate, mindful warrior within.

Prerequisite: The Art of Being Human - Shambhala Training Part 1
