Having experienced a taste of basic goodness in Level I, we begin to work with the obstacles that arise as meditation practice develops.  We explore how habitual ways of thinking and experiencing obscure the raw brilliance of the world we live in as well as our own genuineness and tenderness. Meditation practice allows us to observe how we create a cocoon of habits to mask underlying fear. We begin to appreciate that there is no fundamental obstacle to experiencing basic goodness.

Prerequisite: Shambhala Training Level I
