This is the fourth course in the Way of Shambhala series. Through an exploration of the traditional Buddhist teachings of mind and the nature of reality, we learn to see clearly. We dare to face life and death as they are. The meditator, open to uncertainty, goes beyond hope and fear.

PREREQUISITE: Way of Shambhala: Joy in Everyday Life course.
Shambhala Training Levels I- IV recommended, but not required.

About Mary Kubicki:
Mary Kubicki first encountered the Shambhala Teachings in the chaotic and celebratory atmosphere of the Boulder community in 1974. Delighted by the intelligence, kindness and authentic presence of the practitioners there, she helped start the Milwaukee Shambhala community and never stopped studying and practicing these teachings.

Teaching Shambhala and Buddhist retreats and classes in many cities and at retreat centers since the early 1980s, Mary always feels like a beginner. With a grown family and a career as a CPA, she also sits on the Behavioral Health Planning and Advisory Council, making funding recommendations to Colorado state legislators. She lives in Loveland, CO with her husband.
