Shambhala Training Level IV: Awakened Heart with Walter Taylor
April 2–4, 2010
Shambhala Training is a secular meditation training that develops fearlessness, confidence, openness, and gentleness towards ourselves and our world. These qualities arise out of meditation practice and the study of Shambhala warriorship. Shambhala Training welcomes people of all religious traditions as well as those who do not follow a particular spiritual path.
In Shambhala Training Level IV: Awakened Heart, we will learn to allow our hearts and intuitions to open so that we can communicate fully with the world. 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 discover that we can extend ourselves to others fully and with kindness.
