Shambhala Training Sacred Path: Drala


with Bill Bothwell
January 25 / 7:30 PM - January 27 / 6:00 PM

To repeat a weekend: $45

"Dra" means "enemy" or "opponent" and la means "above." So drala literally means "above the enemy," "beyond the enemy." Drala is the unconditioned wisdom and power of the world that are beyond any dualism; therefore drala
is above any enemy or conflict. It is wisdom beyond aggression. —Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, from Shambhala: Sacred Path of the Warrior

Through exploring the depth of perception, one engages the elemental and magical strength inherent in the world. The principle of drala refers to the sacred energy and power that exist when we step beyond aggression.
