Overview

This is the first book to offer step-by-step instruction in Shambhala warriorship. Combining Buddhist mindfulness practice and pre-Buddhist shamanic teachings, Shambhala warriorship training teaches ways to call on powerful, natural energies for personal and collective transformation. It shows us how to use everyday situations to unite mind, body, and emotions in a harmonious whole.

The Haywards illuminate the powerful and elegant philosophy behind warriorship with practical guidelines, meditations, personal insights, anecdotes, and mindfulness exercises to guide the reader on the warrior's path, which ultimately leads to self-liberation and harmony with the world.

The Haywards are uniquely qualified to present these teachings: close friends and students of Chögyam Trungpa, they helped him present the teachings of Shambhala warriorship through the Shambhala Training program, with which they continue to work closely today.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Haywards take the reader on a journey through ordinary experience into the sacred world, uncovering obstacles to living in sacredness and exploring ways to work with these obstacles. Their meditations, personal insights, anecdotes, and mindfulness exercises guide the reader toward self-knowledge and empathy... A helpful addition to collections on Western and Eastern approaches to living." -Library Journal

"Being a warrior has nothing to do with waging war. Being a warrior means you have the courage to know who you are. Warriors never give up on anyone, including themselves."-from Sacred World
