The Awakened Heart weekend retreat is the fourth Shambhala Training retreat, and an integral part of the Way of Shambhala core curriculum. Having developed trust in basic goodness and daring to experience the sharp edge of reality, we move forward with gentleness, increased awareness, and inquisitiveness about our world, as it is. The more we experience awakened heart, the more we can extend ourselves to others fully and with kindness.

The Shambhala Training weekends offer participants both teachings in the view of the Shambhala and in-depth meditation practice. Attendance is required for the Friday night talk and for each session of the program. If you have special circumstances, please email [email protected] in advance to discuss.

Generosity Policy:  If the sustaining fee is an obstacle for you, please refer to our generosity policy.

Every Shambhala Training level includes meditation instruction, meditation practice, one-on-one meetings to clarify questions, talks by senior teachers, group discussions and a concluding reception.

Prerequisites: Shambhala Training Levels I, II and III.

Recommended: Meditation in Everyday Life and Contentment in Everyday Life

About the Way of Shambhala:

The Way of Shambhala is composed of Shambhala Training Levels I-V, each of which is associated with a five or sixweek course that expands upon the training offered in the weekends and brings the practice of meditation into everyday life.

Over the course of a year, the Way of Shambhala introduces the entire Shambhala path. Illuminating the ways in which meditation impacts our daily lives, the retreats and classes included within the Way of Shambhala offer a glimpse of both the Shambhala vision of enlightened society and how the sanity meditation cultivates can ramify throughout our communities and the whole of society.

Fearlessness in Everyday Life is recommended as the companion course Level IV. Contentment in Everyday Life and Joy in Everyday Life are the prerequisites for Fearlessness in Everyday Life. Please click here for a full description and chart of the Way of Shambhala.
