Warrior in the World – Shambhala Training Weekend III

With Cameron Wenaus

January 12 - 14, 2018


As in music, when we hear the crescendo building, suddenly if the music stops, we begin to hear the silence as part of the music.

~Chögyam Trungpa


When we learn not to turn away from our fear, we can extend that practice into everyday life situations without the barrier of the cocoon. This takes daring. Through daring and gentleness, we open to a clear perception of the world and its feedback. In doing so, our fixation on our own point of view relaxes, and we learn that we can work with whatever situation arises.

Shambhala Training Weekend III: Warrior in the World helps us begin to develop confidence in all aspects of our daily life. As with previous weekends, this retreat includes individual and group meditation instruction, teachings by a senior director, and opportunities to socialize with fellow participants.


  • Friday, January 12: 7 – 9:30 pm
  • Saturday & Sunday, Jan 13 & 14 8:30 am – 6 pm

The program includes breakfast on Saturday and Sunday and a reception.

Prerequisite: Weekend II
