In Level III we work in a deliberate way. We make an effort to bring the mindfulness and awareness cultivated during our meditation practice into all aspects of our daily life. When we become awake to our sense perceptions, we can venture into the world with confidence and a vulnerability that is fearless, gentle and alive. The 'Warrior in the World' leaves the stuffiness of the cocoon to explore the world with direct perception. This can be the beginning of a life-long love affair with the phenomenal world -- not based upon the reference points of hope and fear, gain or loss. Along this journey we develop genuine confidence, humor and personal dignity.

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.

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.
