Shambhala Training II builds on the foundation of the meditation practice that was introduced in Shambhala Training I and explores how habitual ways of thinking obscure the raw brilliance of the world. By opening to our own genuineness and tenderness, we learn how to work with fear to cultivate the willingness to see our deep-seated habits and defenses. This program intensifies the discipline of meditation practice, which enables us to begin seeing through obscurations of habitual patterns that we have created over time.

Every Shambhala Training program includes thorough meditation instruction, periods of meditation practice, one-on-one meetings to clarify questions, talks by senior teachers, group discussions, and a concluding reception.

Prerequisite: Shambhala Training I: The Art of Being Human

Shambhala Training provides in-depth meditation retreats and teachings. Attendance is required for each session of the program.
