Level IV: Awakened Heart

with Betsy Pond & Christine Wetzl
June 27 / 7:00 PM - June 29 / 6:00 PM

"Such awakened heart comes from being willing to face your state of mind ... The sitting practice of meditation is the means to rediscover basic goodness, and beyond that, it is the means to awaken this genuine heart within yourself."
- Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

Shambhala Training is a secular path of spiritual training that develops fearlessness, confidence, openness, and gentle action in the world. This action arises out of meditation practice and the study of Shambhala Warriorship.

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.

Prerequisites: completion of Shambhala Levels I-III is required for this class.

Standard Price- $170
Patron Price - $175. Your generosity in paying the patron price helps provide additional support for Shambhala.
