Level IV: Awakened Heart
August 1 / 7:00 PM - August 3 / 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.
