Shambhala Training Level 5: Open Sky (online)

with Betsy Pond
September 19 / 9:00 AM - September 20 / 5:00 PM

Prerequisite:  Level IV - Awakened Heart

In this fifth and final level of the Heart of Warriorship training, we will learn to inhabit the gentleness, openness, and precision of our true nature so that the present moment can unfold around us in all its vivid brilliance. While we are becoming more familiar with the present moment, we may still be slightly hesitant to let ourselves fully release into the here and now.

By softening our hearts and appreciating the sacredness of our experience, our life itself becomes a delightful source of wisdom and uplifted energy, like that of an open sky.

Open Sky: Shambhala Training Level V introduces a meditation practice that builds upon the mindfulness-awareness technique of Shambhala Training Weekend IV. This cumulative program guides students to a place beyond the gaze, where every moment is now.


This is the fifth-weekend retreat of the Way of Shambhala training path.
