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

About this Programme

This intimate program provides a deepening of instruction for sitting and walking meditation as a means to explore how we can free ourselves from the patterns that repress the brilliant, compassionate, mindful warrior within.

This second Shambhala Training Weekend presents the view that when we open up to our own genuineness, we can 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.

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, right here and now. We can discover and cultivate the bravery necessary to embrace our true nature.


About Level 2

Shambhala Training Level 2: Discover Your Inner Warrior (aka 'Birth of the Warrior') introduces a meditation practice that builds upon the mindfulness-awareness technique of Shambhala Training Weekend I. The weekend provides students with real techniques for working with fear and habitual patterns of thought and behaviour.

Our Shambhala teacher will incorporate these teachings into the weekend’s talks and meditation instruction. A team of meditation instructors will be on hand to personally assist participants with one-to-one sessions and guided group meditation.

Shambhala Training Level 2 includes:

  • Guided meditation practice

  • Meditation talks and discussion

  • One-to-one sessions with an instructor

  • Concluding Sunday reception


About Shambhala Training

Shambhala Training offers a structured path of meditation and emotional intelligence education rooted in the ancient wisdom of the Shambhala tradition and created for the challenges of modern, everyday existence.

The Shambhala Training path consists of weekly classes and weekend retreats suitable for both beginning and experienced meditators, and open to people of any spiritual tradition.

This comprehensive overview of mindfulness meditation and contemplative living practices presents the view that when we foster a more awake relationship with ourselves we are creating a more awake and compassionate world.
