Way of Shambhala–Year 1: Heart of Warriorship
You are warmly invited to join us on the path of staffing. It is a wonderful way to support others on the path, and to review and refresh your own understanding of the teachings. For Shambhala Training Levels, completion of Level III or beyond is required. You may staff any Way of Shambhala course that you have already taken (In Everyday Life or Basic Goodness series).
