About Shambhala Training Weekend 3:  Warrior in the World
 
"To be a warrior is to learn to be genuine in every moment of your life." - Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche 
 
This  is the third retreat weekend in the Shambhala Training curriculum, a a powerful path of training in meditation practices and wisdom teachings. Having discovered our own goodness and having begun to relax with the nature of fear, we can afford to be more daring, open, and genuine.  With gentle fearlessness, we learn to step beyond our conditioning and open to the freshness of each new moment.  We continue to relate to our perceptions and our world directly through meditation practice, and we further develop our capacity to relate to others and our environment with humour, kindness, and strength. 
 
The meditation practice continues to build upon the mindfulness-awareness technique of the first two weekends, providing a means to relate to the world around us more wakefully as warriors. 

Prerequisites: Shambhala Training Levels 1 and 2
