Birth of the Warrior: Shambhala Training II

Shastri Calryn Aston

August 23–25, 2019

Tuition $150 + 2 nights

This weekend workshop builds on the meditation practice introduced in The Art of Being Human: Shambhala Training I and explores how we create a cocoon of our habitual ways of thinking, often obscuring the brilliance of the world we live in. By opening to our own genuineness and tenderness, we learn how to work with fear and appreciate that there is no fundamental obstacle to experiencing basic goodness.

Prerequisite: Completion of Shambhala Training I
