In Shambhala Training Level IV, we learn how to awaken and open our hearts so that we can communicate fully with the world.


Basic goodness is very closely connected to the idea of bodhicitta in the Buddhist tradition. Bodhi means ‘awake’ or ‘wakeful’ and citta means ‘heart,’ so bodhicitta is ‘awakened heart.’ Such awakened heart comes from being willing to face your state of mind. That may seem like a great demand, but it is necessary. 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


Open to graduates of Shambhala Training Level III.


Please note: this retreat was originally scheduled to be held in Eagle Rock but has been moved to our Westside location.


Robert Lehmann has been a meditator in the Kagyu and Nyingma and Shambhala traditions for over 37 years. His original teacher was the Vidyadhara, the Ven. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Since his passing, he has studied with Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche and Her Eminence Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche of the Mindrolling lineage. Robert and his wife Anne Fraser are retired and living in Carpinteria, CA with their two wonderful Lhasa Apsos. They also have three splendid children, all carving out their own paths.
