Level IV: Awakened Heart

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.

 Every Shambhala Training level includes thorough meditation instruction, periods of meditation practice, one-on-one meetings to clarify questions, talks by senior teachers, group discussions and a concluding reception.  The weekend is structured to offer participants teachings and an in-depth meditation retreat.  Attendance is required for each session of the program.

Prerequisites: Shambhala Training Level III
