Living As A Warior
The Way of the Warrior
In “Living as a Warrior”, we look at what we can learn from the bearing of the warrior to enrich our experience of life. We begin with a physical movements practice that enables us to be present in the moment, moment by moment, as a warrior needs to be to be ready for anything that might happen. We then examine three other ways to live by which are fundamental to our learning to live with courage and serenity in the face of uncertainty in life and the inevitability of death.

What people have said
The “Living as a Warrior” workshop was a new experience for me. What struck me the most during this online session was the realisation that “A Warrior takes everything as a challenge while the ordinary man takes everything as a blessing or a curse.” That events are neutral, and that I can choose my interpretation of the event and my response to it. I also learned a new way to face life head-on, which is to “Expect nothing and be ready for anything”. The physical practice in the workshop showed me how to hold my body posture and to breathe from my centre, and I was surprise to experience a boost in my self-confidence and outlook on life. After attending this workshop, I feel that I am much better prepared for the possibilities and uncertainties on the road ahead.
“We need passion. We need challenge and risk. We need to be pushed to our limits. And I believe this is just what happens when we accept a warrior's code, when we try to live each moment as a warrior, whether in education, job, marriage, child rearing, or recreation. The truth is that we don't have to go to combat to go to war. Life is fired at us like a bullet, and there is no escaping it short of death. All escape attempts - drugs, aimless travel, the distractions of the media, empty material pursuits - are sure to fail in the long run, as more and more of us are beginning to learn.”
