In this, the second in the series of Shambhala Training weekend workshops, we cultivate our willingness to observe our cocoon of habitual fear and defense mechanisms. Meditation practice allows us to observe how we create a cocoon of habits to mask our fear. We begin to appreciate that there is no fundamental obstacle to experiencing basic goodness.

Join us for the first of a series of five dharma talks with senior Shambhala Buddhist teachers that will be held the last Sunday of each month through August. The series will focus on the teachings on lojong, or training the mind, which are essential teachings on developing genuine compassion on the path of meditation.
During the Sundays between each talk, we will also read selections from Pema Chodron’s Start Where You Are, which goes through Lojong, slogan by slogan.
