Shambhala Training Level III: Warrior in the World

A Hybrid Weekend Retreat at the Seattle Shambhala Center

During Level III “Warrior in the World” we are encouraged to relate to our life experiences without relying on the cocoon, and to engage the world directly. With the discipline of remaining sensitive with fearlessness, we awaken our sense perceptions, and step out to engage the world directly. We learn to rest the mind in nowness. 

During this level, participants will be offered a talk on Embodied Meditation, and a formal Japanese Tea Ceremony will be offered on Sunday. As we awaken our sense perceptions, poetry, stories, and artistic expressions usually emerge!  

For those that have completed L3, participants are now eligible to staff other Levels of 1-3, and the  “Heart of Warriorship” community.

The program runs from 8:30am with a light breakfast and concludes at 5:30pm each day with a gala concluding reception on Sunday. 

Please plan to register by Thursday, March 16th so we know who will be attending on Zoom vs in-person.
