Shambhala Training Retreat: Levels IV - V

with Shastri Nick Kranz

November 3 - 9

Mukpo Institute This program may be taken on its own or as part of the Mukpo Institute, a three-month residential program.

Shambhala Training Levels IV and V are the concluding levels of the Heart of Warriorship program. These two levels provide a strong foundation in mindfulness-awareness meditation practice, emphasizing the development of genuine confidence, humor, and personal dignity within the complexity of daily life.

The levels can be taken separately, but the program is offered as one continuous retreat. Completion of Levels IV and V is one of the prerequisites for the Way of Shambhala.

Level IV: Awakened Heart

When we enter the world in an open and vulnerable way, we let the world touch our heart, and our heart wakes up to the touch. We encounter the world with clear perception, free from our conventional ways of thinking and experiencing.

Level V: Open Sky

With our body resting on the earth, no different from the earth, and our mind resting in the sky, no different from the sky, we encounter the vastness of heaven joined with the primordial depth of earth in our own being. This state is the basis for our activity in the world.

Please plan on arriving between 4pm and 6pm on November 3, 2017 to check-in and register. Dinner is from 6:30pm to 7:00pm. The program begins at 7:30pm. November 9, 2017 is departure day; you are free to leave at any time.
