Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior

Shambhala:  The Sacred Path of the Warrior is not about how to become a ninja, how to do manly drum circles, or face-paint yourself for a hunt.  It’s about how to be genuine to yourself, how to feel peace and give that to others.  It’s prescriptive and spiritual at the same time.  It won’t give you a top 10 list of happy suggestions.  What it will do is coach you on some basic life practices that will give you clarity and insight, developing your mindfulness and basic goodness.  You’re a warrior because as Trungpa says “In ancient times the warrior learned to master the challenges of life, both on and off the battlefield. He acquired a sense of personal freedom and power–not through violence or aggression, but through gentleness, courage, and self-knowledge.”   This book  takes the reader onto the warrior path in search of self-mastery and a feeling of greater fulfillment.
