Rigden Weekend

with Mathias Pongracz & Marianne Bots
July 4 / 5:00 AM - July 7 / 6:00 AM

The Way of Shambhala will culminate in the “Rigden Weekend”. The Rigden is a representation of our basic enlightened nature and embodies the principle of unconditional bravery. Historically, rigdens were enlightened rulers —those who could “rule their world” based on their unwavering experience of basic goodness.

This weekend includes a formal transmission of windhorse practice, and study of the Six Ways of Ruling.

Prerequisite: Wisdom in Everyday Life and Level V, or completion of the Sacred Path program and some introductory Buddhist classes.
