In Shambhala Weekend Retreat Level IV: Awakened Heart, we learn how to open our hearts so we can communicate more fully with the world. Rather than using our experiences as an occasion to regenerate habitual patterns, we can use them as reminders to further wake up. When we allow ourselves to meet the world without hope and fear we find resources of energy and steadiness.

Every Shambhala Weekend Retreat Level includes thorough meditation instruction, periods of meditation practice, one-on-one meetings to clarify questions, talks by senior teachers, group discussions and a concluding reception.

Prerequisite: Shambhala Weekend Retreat Level III- Warrior in the World

Recommended: Fearlessness in Everday Life


The Way of Shambhala is composed of Shambhala Weekend Retreat Levels I-V, each followed by a five-week course that expands upon what was offered in the weekend and brings the practice of meditation into everyday life.

Over the course of a year, the Way of Shambhala introduces the entire Shambhala path. This series offers a glimpse of the Shambhala vision of enlightened society by emphasizing the ways in which meditation can impact our daily lives, and from there, how the sanity of meditation can expand to impact our community and our whole society.
