(ONLINE) Open Sky: Level 5 of the Heart of Warriorship

with Acharya Dan Hessey

October 31 - November 1


In this fifth and final level of the Heart of Warriorship Training, we will learn to inhabit the gentleness, openness and precision of our true nature so that the present moment can unfold around us in all its vivid brilliance. While we are becoming more familiar with the present moment, we may still be slightly hesitant to let ourselves fully release into the here and now.

By softening our hearts and appreciating the sacredness of our experience, our life itself becomes a delightful source of wisdom and uplifted energy, like that of an open sky.

Open Sky: Shambhala Training Level 5 introduces a meditation practice that builds upon the mindfulness-awareness technique of Awakened Heart, Shambhala Training Level 4. This cumulative program guides students to a place beyond the gaze, where every moment is now.

Shambhala Training Level 5 includes:

• Guided meditation instruction
• Mindfulness meditation talks
• Optional one-on-one meditation instruction
