Way of Shambhala II: Golden Key

with Ben Hines
May 2 / 6:30 PM - May 5 / 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.

The Sacred Path program continues to deal with bringing the principles of warriorship and the practice of mindfulness-awareness into daily life. In particular, it is designed to nurture the student's natural ability to experience the world as sacred and his or her aspiration to create an enlightened society.

Drawing wisdom from The Letter of the Golden Key, a Shambhala root text that addresses our relationship to the material world and our sense perceptions, we will learn the practice of enriching presence: the ability to instantly sense the inner wealth within ourselves, phenomena and the natural world.

Golden Key is one evening and 3 full days. The program begins on Thursday 5/2/2013 at 6:30pm and will end at 6pm on Sunday 5/5/2013

Note: There is an additional $50 material fee for the text and sourcebook; this fee is not subject to discounts.
