Levels I-III are the first three of the five levels of the highly acclaimed Heart of Warriorship training curriculum which provide a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation practice, emphasizing the development of genuineness, confidence, humor, and dignity within the complexity of daily life. This retreat is recommended for both new and experienced meditators.

The simple and profound technique of mindfulness and awareness is the basis of a secular path of meditation, which can benefit people of any spiritual tradition and way of life. Shambhala Training is the study and practice of Shambhala warriorship - the tradition of human bravery, kindness, and leadership. This path shows how to take the challenges of daily life in our modern society as opportunities for both contemplative practice and social action.

Every Shambhala Training level includes thorough meditation instruction, periods of meditation practice, optional one-on-one meetings with a meditation instructor, talks by a senior teacher, group discussions, and contemplative movement exercises.
