Awakened Heart: Shambhala Training Level IV Weekend Retreat


with Robert Pressnall
December 7 / 7:00 PM - December 9 / 2:00 PM

Extending ourselves to others fully and with kindness.
Trusting further 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 find that we can extend ourselves to others fully and with kindness.


This weekend workshop includes meditation training and practice, talks by senior instructors, personal interviews and group discussions. Awakened Heart is the fourth in a series of five weekend workshops.


The Weekend Retreats
The weekend retreats are opportunities to deepen one’s practice of meditation in a powerful environment that meets the needs of a work-week and family life. Rather than having to go away for meditation experience, we provide this training in local communities.


Within each module, the courses or weekend retreats are designed to be taken sequentially. For example, within the Shambhala Training weekend retreats, participants progress from level I through Level V in sequence. You may begin with any of the first three modules listed above.


All are welcome to participate. The Way of Shambhala is open to people of all religious backgrounds or no religious background. It is recommended for new and experienced meditators, as well as those looking to enrich their personal spiritual path and social action in the world.
