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.  In Level V our awareness continues to expand. This is likened to the open clear sky of mind, which is a delightful source of wisdom and uplifted energy. By learning to trust our nature enough to let go into the present moment with gentleness and precision, the Shambhala teachings help us to soften our hearts and appreciate the sacredness of our daily lives.

"The only answer is nowness"

- Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche


Participants should be aware that they must attend all parts of the Level, i.e. the entire Level, in order to receive credit for completion of the Level, which is a prerequisite to attend the Rigden Weekend, the next sequential weekend program in the Way of Shambhala series.

Meals: Coffee will be available in the morning.   Please bring at least $7.00-$10.00 cash for lunch each day.  We will either all eat out together or have something simple catered, including a vegetarian option.  Anyone with special dietary needs is invited to bring their lunch.  The group is invited to go out to dinner Saturday night, but it is not required.

Our Generosity Policy

In order to make our programs accessible to everyone, we have a “pay what you can afford” policy.  If the program price is an obstacle for you, please decide what works for you and offer whatever you can.  To arrange for this, please contact Jackie Snyder .

For those who can offer more than the program price, we have a “patron price”.  Your generosity in offering the patron price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price. 


A generous donor has made scholarship assistance available for those with limited financial means.  To apply, please contact Jackie Snyder


We would greatly appreciate your registering online before the class, so that we can anticipate class size for food and material preparation.

If you have any questions, please contact Jackie Snyder
