In Awakened Heart, Shambhala Training Level IV, the boundaries between “us in here” and the “world out there” become more permeable. Our natural curiosity takes us deeper as our hearts open and we learn to let more of the world in, allowing ourselves to be touched without closing down out of fear. We start to see that who we are and what the world is are not as separate as we might have assumed. We continue to discover our inherent confidence, patience, and generosity.

This program includes:

  • Guided meditation practice
  • Meditation talks
  • One-on-one meditation instruction


This program is offered online, using Zoom video conferencing.

All times are Eastern Standard Time (EST).

Prerequisite: Warrior in the World—Shambhala Training Level III.
