"To be a warrior is to learn to be genuine in every moment of your life." - Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche 


About Shambhala Training Level III

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. 

Shambhala Training Level III provides a meditation practice to further awaken the mind and heart. 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 humor, kindness, and strength. 

Shambhala Training Level III: Warrior in the World introduces a meditation practice that builds upon the mindfulness-awareness technique of Shambhala Training Level II. The weekend provides students with a means to raise our gaze and relate to the world around us, like warriors. 

Our senior 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-on-one interviews and guided group meditation.

Shambhala Training Level III includes: 

  • Guided meditation practice 

  • Meditation talks

  • One-on-one sessions with a senior instructor

  • Concluding Sunday celebration
