From the introduction:

"Shambhala warriorship encourages us to be brave, awake and attentive to others. Working to uncover our depression, laziness and other forms of cowardice puts us in touch with the sunrise of genuine goodness that is evident in every moment. By honoring the sadness and tenderness inherent in the human heart, Shambhala warriorship challenges us to deprogram ourselves from the core addictions of ego and celebrate our human condition. It opens us to a path of sanity and wisdom based in the genuine and fearless expression of natural dignity and compassionate presence."

Roger Guest began his formal study of Buddhism in 1973 and has been active in the Shambhala Buddhist community as a teacher and practitioner for over 34 years. He served as Executive Director of Karme-Choling here in Barnet, Vermont from 1980 to 1986. After the death in 1987 of his root teacher, the Venerable Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Mr. Guest went on to acquire a Masters Degree in Counseling from McGill University and establish a career in mental health. He currently lives in and works in Vermont and offers programs and retreats throughout the US, Canada and Mexico.
