 "Fear is a natural reaction to moving closer to the truth."  - Pema Chödron 

Birth of the Warrior: Shambhala Training Weekend Retreat II builds on the foundation of the meditation practice that was introduced in Weekend I and explores how habitual ways of thinking obscure the raw brilliance of the world we live in. 

By opening to our own genuineness and tenderness, we learn how to work with fear to cultivate the willingness to see our deep-seated habits and defenses. This weekend program intensifies the discipline of meditation practice, which enables us to begin seeing through obscurations of habitual patterns that we have created over time.

By relating to fear through meditation practice, we begin to appreciate that there isn't actually anything fundamentally wrong with us. We are good, just as we are, in the here and now. We simply have to discover the bravery necessary to embrace our true nature.

Every Shambhala Training Weekend includes thorough meditation instruction, periods of meditation practice, one-on-one meetings with a meditation instructor to clarify questions, talks by senior teachers, group discussions, and a concluding reception.

Prerequisite: Feel Human Again: Shambhala Training Weekend Retreat I (aka Level 1)
