Open Sky: Shambhala Training Level V
April 17–19, 2015
Shambhala Training V is the concluding level of the Shambhala Training series. With our bodies resting on the earth, no different from the earth, and our minds 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. Communicating with the world gently and fearlessly, our awareness is sharpened and we find the open clear sky of mind—a delightful source of wisdom and uplifted energy. We learn to trust our nature enough to let go into the present moment.
Tuition includes a $20 Materials Fee.
Prerequisite: Completion of Shambhala Training Levels I- IV
