Shambhala Level V - Open Sky


with Lance Brunner
August 23 / 7:00 PM - August 25 / 6:00 PM

Communicating with the world gently and fearlessly, our awareness is sharpened and we find the open clear sky of mind—a delightful source of wisdom and uplifted energy. We trust our nature enough to let go into the present moment. 


The weekend will include meditation, contemplation, a review of Levels I-IV and mindfulness/awareness exercises, as well as interviews and discussion groups.
