We are living in confusing and anxious times. By communicating with the world gently and fearlessly, we can sharpen our awareness and find the open, clear sky of mind—a brilliant source of wisdom and uplifted energy.  We learn to trust our nature enough to let go into the present moment.

Shambhala Training Level V completes the first series of Shambhala Training levels and is necessary to attend Rigden Weekend in February. 

Based on ancient teachings that were brought to the West by Tibetan Buddhist meditation master Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Shambhala Training offers a way of living in the world with confidence, genuineness and creative expression based on the inherent wisdom that exists in every person.  Shambhala training offers clear and precise methods for uplifting our personal experience and that of others. This weekend-long program includes meditation instruction with periods of sitting and walking practice, formal talks, group discussion and personal interviews.

Prerequisite: Level IV Shambhala Training

Repeat attendees:  If you would like to take this level again, we have special pricing.  Email us or contact Randy O., P&E director, for details.

Generosity Policy
In order to make our programs accessible to everyone, we have a “pay what you can afford” policy. If the program price is an obstacle for you, please decide what works for you and offer whatever you can. At times, a minimum is set and if that is still an obstacle, please email us ([email protected]).  We will never turn you away because of financial issues.

Our programs are listed with a base donation amount. These program donations help us pay rent and utilities, and allow us to offer honorariums to our teachers and pay travel expenses for them. Program donations are our only source of income outside of Center member donations.

For those who can offer more than the program price, we have a “patron price”. Your generosity in offering the patron price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price.
