Open Sky – Shambhala Training Level V

With Shastri John Fox

October 12 - 14, 2018

This program is part of The Way of Shambhala, our core path of training.   


With Open Sky, we relax into vastness. Having identified with the natural qualities of spontaneous wakefulness and openness within ourselves, we learn to trust them. Then we can let go into the vast spaciousness of our minds and the world around us.


The program includes breakfast on Saturday and Sunday and a reception on Sunday.

Prerequisite: Shambhala Training Level IV
