An opportunity to complete Shambhala Training Level IV: Awakened Heart and Level V: Open Sky in our beautiful retreat environment.  In level IV, 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.  

In level V, communicating with the world gently and fearlessly, our awareness is sharpened and we find the open clear sky of mind—a delightful source of wisdom and uplifted energy. We trust our nature enough to let go into the present moment.

***There is a $20 materials fee for this program NOT INCLUDED in the above prices (for the pins recieved after completing level 5)***


JEREMY HAYWARD became a student of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche in 1970, and  helped to found the Naropa University under the guidance of Chögyam Trungpa in 1974 In 1977 he helped to create the Shambhala Training program and has been a central figure in the development of the Shambhala teachings ever since. He published a book on the Shambhala teachings in 1995: Sacred World, the Shambhala Path to Gentleness, Bravery and Power.  He was appointed acharya in 1996. In 2008 his memoirs of life with Trungpa Rinpoche were published entitled, Warrior-King of Shambhala: Remembering Chögyam Trungpa.


Full program tuition not including accommodations: $260 plus $20 Material Fee = 280  We invite all who are able to do so to pay the full tuition rate.  By doing so, you make it possible for us to offer scholarships to others, while also covering the direct cost of your stay here and contributing to our year round operations.   Interest free payment plans for 6 months are an option for those who choose this tuition level. 

Discounted program tuition  not including accommodations: $200 plus $20 Material Fee = 220 If the full tuition is unworkable for you, please pay the discounted rate if you can.  By doing so you contribute towards the cost of your being here and everything it takes to keep DDL operating year-round.

Discounted tuition plus payment plan not including accommodations: $34 per month over six months   If having 6 months to pay makes the discounted tuition possible for you, please choose this interest free option.   The payments would be $34 per month for tuition; if you add lodging to the payment plan it would be $56/month.


Please Note: Above price includes meals but not accommodations. For winter programs, double and triple rooms with shared hallway bathrooms are available in Gyatso Lodge for $45 per night, so for this program the lodging cost would be an additional $135.  Huts and Cabins are not available as lodging options for winter programs. 

 All program costs at Dorje Denma Ling are workable. With either of the tuition choices above, we can provide a payment plan of up to 6 months, and we also match all scholarships that local Shambhala Centers grant to help their members attend programs.
