Chögyam Trungpa offers us a vision of moving beyond fear to discover the innate bravery, trust, and delight in life that lies at the core of our being. Drawing on the Shambhala Buddhist teachings, he explains how we can each become a spiritual warrior: a person who faces each moment of life with openness and fearlessness. "The ultimate definition of bravery is not being afraid of who you are," writes Chögyam Trungpa. In this audiobook, he offers the insights and strategies to claim victory over fear.

This is a wonderful audio book, well narrated. Unfortunately it lost me in some of the text and I could not grab what was being conveyed. The book is in-depth and tries it's best to describe the tradition of a warrior. Thanks.

"Being a warrior simple means being here (in the now) without distraction or preoccupation."

Author has in-depth know how and has gone to extreme levels to find facts on human body. Good listening. However, average listeners like me who are not well versed with scientific terms will get lost sometimes in between. Author has done his part to explain each detail but I just could not keep up. Too much to absorb in one book. Very thoughtful and interesting facts. Thanks.

The book is decent enough for beginners. I was however expecting more in-depth connection and real life examples of how mindfulness actually helped individuals or can help as we practice. Maybe this book wasn’t intended for this specific purpose. Good read/listening.
