Open to everyone who has completed Level 1 of Shambhala Training- The Art of Being Human

Building on the foundation of the meditation practice that was introduced in Level I, this course illuminates the roles of fear and fearlessness in the spiritual warrior’s journey. We will explore how habitual ways of thinking obscure the raw brilliance of the world we live in. Through opening to our own genuineness and tenderness, we learn how to work with fear in order to cultivate our basic sanity, dignity and goodness.

The second in a series of Shambhala Training programs, Level Two includes instruction on meditation, talks by the director, individual meetings with teachers, discussions with other participants, and a concluding reception.

Note: Level I is a prerequisite. The Contentment in Everyday Life class is designed to complement this LEVEL II.
