Room: Main Shrine Room

In Shambhala Training Weekend IV, we learn how to awaken and open our hearts so that we can communicate fully with the world. With trust in basic goodness and daring to experience the sharp edge of reality, we move forward with gentleness, increased awareness, and inquisitiveness about the world, as it is. We can extend ourselves to others fully and with kindness.

“Basic goodness is very closely connected to the idea of bodhicitta in the Buddhist tradition. Bodhi means ‘awake’ or ‘wakeful’ and citta means ‘heart,’ so bodhicitta is ‘awakened heart.’ Such awakened heart comes from being willing to face your state of mind. That may seem like a great demand, but it is necessary. The sitting practice of meditation is the means to rediscover basic goodness, and beyond that, it is the means to awaken this genuine heart within yourself.”

~ Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

 

As with previous weekends, this retreat includes individual and group meditation instruction, teachings by a senior director, and opportunities to socialize with fellow participants.

Pre-requisite: Shambhala Training Weekend III: Warrior in the World
