About This Event

Prerequisites: Shambhala Training Levels I, II, & III.

Shambhala Training Levels IV and V are the concluding levels of the Heart of Warriorship program. These two 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.

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.

The levels can be taken separately, but the program is offered as one continuous retreat.   Level IV will begin at 7:30pm on Friday, August 3rd and continue through the afternoon of Sunday, August 5th.  Level V will begin at 7:30 pm on Sunday, August 5th and ends at 5PM on Tuesday, August 7th.  Price for one level will be 1/2 the listed price.

Material fee for Level V: $20 will be collected from those attending this program.

If you would like to register for only 1 of the levels, not both, please select your lodging or commuter option, pay the deposit only, and we will collect the correct amount (1/2 the price listed) at registration.  Please note which program you will take.

Why Retreat?

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

So that I am rejuvenated to be the best I can be in my relationships - personal, work and in Society - offering and giving to be of benefit to others! Laura

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.
