Daring is the result or the active aspect of fearlessness. When you experience a lack of fear, then what you do with fearlessness is daring, or letting go. Because you care for others you have fearlessness, you have faith, there's no doubt, and you become daring.   --Chögyam Trungpa


Having learned not to turn away from fear, this third weekend of the Way of Shambhala series helps us extend that practice into everyday life situations without the barrier of self-consciousness and 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. We begin to develop confidence in all aspects of our daily life.

The program includes meditation instruction, talks by the Director, group discussions, guided contemplative practice, and individualized instruction.

Pre-requisite: Shambhala Training Level II
