Having further awakened our minds and hearts in Shambhala Training Weekend III, we continue our journey by allowing our natural curiosity to show us more of our world outside the parameters of our usual fears.

In this program, we will explore a meditation practice that teaches us to apply the mind of meditation to the challenges of everyday life. With this expanded meditation practice, our lives become filled with more options, more potential, and more chances to see the world with confidence, patience, and generosity.

Pre-requisite: completion of Shambhala Training Level 3

Shambhala Training Levels 4 includes:

• Guided meditation practice
• Mindfulness meditation talks by a senior teacher
• Group discussions
• Optional one-on-one meditation instruction
• Mindfulness movement exercises
