Shambhala Training Sacred Path: Windhorse
with Marcy Fink
December 7 / 7:30 PM - December 9 / 6:00 PM
To repeat a weekend: $45
Raising windhorse is raising a wind of delight and power and riding on that energy....the personal experience of this wind comes as a feeling of being completely and powerfully in the present -- Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche
In this Sacred Path program we begin studying the root text, The Letter of the Black Ashe, which includes the instruction for “raising windhorse,” a practice for opening the heart and refreshing one's confidence. The practice is a way to bring about skillful and heartfelt social engagement, enabling the warrior to go forward in the midst of whatever challenges occur.
Pre-requisite: Great Eastern Sun
