Way of Shambhala Level IV: Awakened Heart

with Steve Seely
April 26 / 6:30 PM - April 28 / 6:00 PM

The Way of Shambhala is a series of classes designed to awaken us to the potential of our lives. It teaches us to live meaningfully with joy; to deepen our intelligence and compassion, and to learn to unify the practical and the profound. Daily life becomes an opportunity to further cultivate these qualities.

In Level IV: Awakened Heart, we will further explore our perceptions of and relationship to our world. We do this with a sense of curiosity and openness so that we will have the clarity and respect to see it as it is. From this place of freshness, steadiness and non-struggle, the world automatically wakes us up and gives us the courage to engage more fully in a direct and conscious way.

The Way of Shambhala is our core practice and education program. It includes five Shambhala Training weekend programs (Levels I through V), and five companion 5-week classes (Meditation in Everyday Life through Wisdom in Everyday Life). You are encouraged to do both together, but it is possible to do just the weekends in order, or just the classes in order. To proceed beyond WoS I, all weekends and week night classes are required.
