About us

Shambhala Training Levels IV and V are the concluding levels of the Heart of Warriorship program. These levels provide a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation practice, emphasizing the development of genuine confidence, humor, and personal dignity within the complexity of daily life.

This program is offered as one continuous retreat. Completion of Levels IV and V is one of the prerequisites for Enlightened Society Assembly and continuing Sacred Path programs.

Level IV: Awakened Heart

When we enter the world in an open and vulnerable way, we let the world touch our heart, and our heart wakes up to the touch. We encounter the world with clear perception, free from our conventional ways of thinking and experiencing.

Level V: Open Sky

With our body resting on the earth, no different from the earth, and our mind resting in the sky, no different from the sky, we encounter the vastness of heaven joined with the primordial depth of earth in our own being. This state is the basis for our activity in the world.

Great Eastern Sun

The vision of the Great Eastern Sun is the entrance into sacred world and the practice of creating an uplifted and sane society. This program teaches how to see the Great Eastern Sun, the primordial energy and brilliance that is the basis of all that exists.

Pre-requisites: Shambhala Training Levels I – III (some exceptions may be made for individuals who have yet to complete Level III). The In Everyday Life series, Rigden Weekend and Basic Goodness series are recommended, but not required for participation in this retreat.

This program is taught in English. Spanish interpretation will be made available for participants whose first language is Spanish. Please register early and let us know if that is true for you.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Retreats inspire me to continue to practice and fuel my journey. I always find specified intention and feel it projects me closer to my purpose. Shannon

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
