PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF DATES~Shambhala Training Level V: Open Sky With Janet Solyntjes
March 23–25, 2012
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 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 V: Open Sky, we will
sharpen our awareness, finding the open clear sky of mind—a delightful source of wisdom and uplifted energy—and trusting our nature enough to let go into the present moment.
Prerequisite: Shambhala Training Level IV
