Sacred Path - Windhorse

November 8 / 7:00 PM - November 10 / 6:00 PM

Between 1976 and 1980, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche received four Shambhala treasure teachings, or terma. In Windhorse, participants receive and study one of these texts, “The Letter of the Black Ashe,” as well as Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche's extensive commentaries.

Participants also receive the instruction for “raising windhorse,” which opens the heart and refreshes one's confidence. This practice is a way to bring about skillful and heartfelt social engagement, enabling the warrior to go forward in the midst of whatever challenges occur.

Prerequisite: Completion of the “Great Eastern Sun” Sacred Path level

Material fee: The root text “The Letter of the Black Ashe” and the Windhorse source book are required and will be handed out during the weekend. The total cost for these two texts is $50, which is the material fee.

About the Sacred Path:

The Sacred Path series deepens the warrior's journey by introducing the root Shambhala teachings and their commentaries. The teachings are based on a societal vision and aspiration to bring forth the goodness of human beings as well as the goodness of human society.

During a series of visionary experiences that took place between 1976 and 1980, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche wrote down the four root Shambhala texts. The Sacred Path is based on these texts. The Sacred Path presents extensive commentaries by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche on how these teachings are relevant in modern times.
