Exploring and strengthening our inherently awakened open heart can be particularly helpful to us during challenging and uncertain times, such as the one we are living through now. During this retreat—the fourth in the Way of Shambhala path of training—we will work with our natural openness and see how it is possible to allow the world to touch us without closing down in fear. We will explore how to apply the mind of meditation to experience the world directly, as it is. With this open view and through an expanded meditation practice, there is more potential for us to live fully with curiosity, appreciation and kindness in this ever-changing world.

During these four 3-hour online sessions over two weekends, we will introduce a meditation practice that builds on the techniques of the previous Shambhala Training retreats, Levels 1 to 3, inviting participants to further open to their environment and sense perceptions.

The sessions will include: talks and guided meditation; walking meditation (in your home or outside); contemplation; group discussions.

Pre-requisite: Completion of Level 3 of Shambhala Training (Warrior in the World or Waking Up to Our World Through Mindfulness Meditation)
