Awakened Heart, Shambhlala Training Level IV Weekend Retreat

with Jesse Miller
July 6 / 9:00 AM - July 7 / 6:00 PM

With trust 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 can extend ourselves to others fully and with kindness.

The fourth in the series of Shambhala training weekends, this  program includes meditation instruction with periods of sitting and walking practice, formal talks, group discussion and personal interviews.
