Golden Key


with Lance Brunner
April 26 / 7:30 PM - April 28 / 6:00 PM

This program is based on a Shambhala text that works with our relationship to the material world and our sense perceptions. It teaches the practice of enriching presence—the ability to instantly sense the inner wealth within oneself, phenomena, and the natural world.
