In the Way of Shambhala Training Level II: "Birth of the Warrior" we learn to recognize habitual patterns and discover fearlessness. Having experienced a taste of basic goodness, we want to go forward. Meditation practice allows us to observe how we create a cocoon of habits to mask our fear. We begin to appreciate that there is no fundamental obstacle to experiencing basic goodness and discovering fearlessness.

The program fee includes two light breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday, a catered lunch at the Center on Saturday, tea on Saturday and Sunday, and a celebratory reception on Sunday evening.
