Shambhala Level IV: Awakened Heart


With trust in basic goodness and daring to experience the sharp edge of reality, we move forward with gentleness, increased awareness, and inquisitiveness about the world, as it is. We can extend ourselves to others fully and with kindness.


This training is the fourth in a series of five weekend workshops that include meditation training and practice, talks by senior instructors, personal interviews and group discussions. Levels I-V provide a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation practice, emphasizing the development of genuineness, confidence, humor, and dignity within the complexity of daily life.


Prerequisites: Completion of Levels I-III.

Often we have the time but not the money or we have the money but not the time to attend programs though the desire and need is still there. Your attendance is more important than the money to us.  Please reflect on how much you can offer and give more, less, or the suggested amount based on your individual circumstances. The tuition amount reflects our costs to offer the program.
