Level III - Warrior In The World

Shambhala Training Level III provides meditation practice and teachings that builds upon the mindfulness-awareness technique of Shambhala Training Level II to further awaken the mind and heart. With gentle fearlessness, these teachings help us to step beyond our conditioning and open to the freshness of each new moment.  This Level will be taught on two consecutive Saturdays, in order to give us the opportunity to take the “Warrior in the World” practices into our daily lives. 

In this third in the series of Shambhala Training, the boundaries between us in here and the world out there become more permeable. Our natural curiosity takes us deeper as our hearts open and we learn to let more of the world in, allowing ourselves to be touched without closing down out of fear. We start to see that who we are and what the world is are not as separate as we might have assumed. We continue to discover our inherent confidence, patience, and generosity.

Trusting further in basic goodness and daring to experience the sharp edge of reality, we move forward with gentleness, increased awareness, and inquisitiveness about the world, as it is. We find that we can extend ourselves to others fully and with kindness. We learn that we can apply our practice to whatever arises, developing more confidence in all aspects of our world.
