Awakened Heart -- Level IV

with Frank Ryan
December 6 / 7:00 PM - December 8 / 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.

Level IV will be directed by Frank Ryan, a senior teacher within the Shambhala community for over thirty years. He studied with Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and his son, and lineage heir, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and has served within the administrative mandalas of the Chicago, Vancouver, Karme Choling and Boston communities. Frank and his wife, Susan reside in the New Haven and Boston areas.  Deb Drexler, past Director of the Shambhala Meditation Center of New Haven, will be the Assistan Director.

Pre-registration with a minimum $25 deposit is requested by 11/30. This can be mailed to: New Haven Shambhala Center, 85 Willow Street Building B, New Haven CT 06511.
