Shambhala Training Weekend Retreat V: Open Sky [Online]

with David Stone
July 24 / 7:00 PM - July 26 / 3:30 PM

With our body resting on the earth, no different from the earth, with our mind resting in the sky, no different from the sky, we encounter the vastness of heaven joined with the primordial depth of earth—how they actually come together in our own being. This state serves as the basis for our activity in the world.

The class will be conducted online, and will include meditation instruction, talks, periods of meditation practice and discussions. Open to graduates of Shambhala Training IV.
