Open Sky: Shambhala Training, Level V - Online

with Jil Amadio
January 29 / 10:00 AM - January 30 / 4:30 PM

In Open Sky, Shambhala Training Level V, we begin to sharpen our awareness. We also find the open clear sky of mind, which is a delightful source of wisdom and uplifted energy. By learning to trust our nature enough to let go into the present moment, the Shambhala teachings help us to soften our hearts and appreciate the sacredness of our daily lives.

Open Sky is the fifth weekend retreat in the Way of Shambhala series.

Prerequisite: Shambhala Training Level IV, Awakened Heart
