In Open Sky, Shambhala Training Level V, one begins to sharpen one's awareness. One also finds the open clear sky of mind, which is a delightful source of wisdom and uplifted energy. By learning to trust our nature enough to let go into the present moment with gentleness and precision, the Shambhala teachings help us to soften our hearts and appreciate the sacredness of our daily lives.

The Level V, Open Sky, focuses on the pervasive quality of awakened mind, as we find ourselves able to communicate with the world gently and fearlessly.

Open Sky is the fifth and final weekend in the Shambhala Training, Heart of Warriorship, program. The Heart of Warriorship program provides a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation practice, emphasizing the development of genuineness, confidence, humor, and dignity within the complexity of daily life.

Shambhala Training Level IV is a pre-requisite for Level V.
