Level II builds on the foundation of the meditation practice that was introduced in Level I and explores how habitual ways of thinking obscure the raw brilliance of the world we live in.

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 weekend program intensifies the discipline of meditation practice, which enables us to begin seeing through obscurations of habitual patterns that we have created over time.

The 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.

Lunch on Saturday is included in the program price. When you register, your confirmation e-mail will have a hospitality survey link where you may indicate dietary preferences.

Shambhala weekends are structured to offer participants teachings and an in-depth meditation retreat. Attendance is required for the Friday night talk and for each session of the program.

Prerequisite: Shambhala Training Level I - The Art of Being Human
Recommended: Meditation in Everyday Life (MIEL)
