Prerequisite:  Level IV – Awakened Heart

Communicating with the world gently and fearlessly, our awareness is sharpened and we find the open clear sky of mind - a delightful source of wisdom and uplifted energy. We trust our nature enough to let go into the present moment.  In Level V our awareness continues to expand. This is likened to the open clear sky of mind, which is a delightful source of wisdom and uplifted energy. By learning to trust our nature enough to let go into the present moment with gentleness and precision, the Shambhala teachings help us to soften our hearts and appreciate the sacredness of our daily lives.

"The only answer is nowness"

Participants should be aware that they must attend all parts of the Level, i.e. the entire Level, in order to receive credit for completion of the Level, which is a prerequisite to attend the Rigden Weekend, the next sequential weekend program in the Way of Shambhala series.

Meals: Coffee will be available in the morning.   Please bring at least $7.00-$10.00 cash for lunch each day.  We will either all eat out together or have something simple catered, including a vegetarian option.  Anyone with special dietary needs is invited to bring their lunch.  The group is invited to go out to dinner Saturday night, but it is not required.

Please pre-register online, so that we will know if there are sufficient participants to hold the program and may plan snacks and material accordingly.
