Vajrayana Practice Weekend


November 16 / 9:00 AM - November 17 / 4:15 PM

Prerequisites
The Vajrayana Practice Weekend is open to students who have received vajrayana transmission at the Sacred World Assembly. The Sacred World Assembly is a complete entrance into the sacred outlook of Shambhala. Vajrayana practice and study programs are held at both urban and residential Shambhala meditation centres to support a student's practice with teachings, group practice and guidance from acharyas and the Sakyong. The vajrayana path offers powerful methods for cultivating one’s innate compassion and wisdom and is based on a strong teacher-student connection. If you have questions about the prerequisite, please send an email to vancouver@shambhala.org.
