Way of Shambhala: Rigden Weekend & The Shambhala Vow


with Emily Bower
May 17 / 6:30 PM - May 19 / 6:00 PM

Culmination of the Heart of Warriorship Series & the Everyday Life Series


Prerequisites: Shambhala Training Level V & Wisdom in Everyday Life; or previous completion of the Sacred Path Series


The Rigden Weekend, led by Acharya Emily Bower, shows how contentment, joy, fearlessness and wisdom of the Way of Shambhala I culminate in unconditional confidence - the foundation of being a Shambhala warrior in the world. Introducing practices of windhorse and drala that may be naturally applied to everyday experience and challenges, this program provides a fundamental step in our journey. With the great problems now facing human society, it seems increasingly important to draw on the confidence we cultivate as warriors, and in our warrior communities, to bring compassionate leadership to the world, even in small ways.

This weekend completes the Way of Shambhala Heart of Warriorship Series & Everyday Life Series.  By the wishes of the Sakyong, the Rigden Weekend includes the opportunity to take the new Shambhala Vow and receive a Shambhala Name. The Shambhala Vow is an acknowledgement and proclamation that basic goodness is the essential nature of humanity. Family and friends of participants are welcome to witness the vow ceremony on Sunday at 4pm and attend the reception afterward.
 
Note: All advanced students - those who have completed Sacred Path or beyond - are also invited to attend this profound and spirited program.
