UPCOMING ONLINE TEACHING

 

Awakened Heart: Shambhala Level IV,

March 16-17,  11:00 am – 6:30 pm EST

Deepen your meditation practice, and continue along the path of the Shambhala teachings on warriorship, in this weekend retreat.  Once again Shambhala Gainesville has partnered with Shambhala Online to present these teachings.  We will open the center so that participants may practice together.  Please help us participate in the revenue sharing option by using ____ to register.  When you do this, our center will receive 50 percent of the program fee.

Awakened Heart: Shambhala Training Level IV builds on the presentation of basic goodness in Shambhala Level I,  the teachings on “cocoon” in Shambhala Level II, and the exploration of fearlessness in Level III. 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.

We will expand our meditation practice further, building on the mindfulness-awareness techniques learned in Shambhala Training Levels I, II, and III, and exploring real techniques for how to be even more present for both ourselves and others with more care and curiosity.

Prerequisite:  Shambhala Training Level III. Awakened Heart is the fourth retreat in a progressive series of weekend retreats, meaning each weekend is a requirement for the following weekend.
