Shambhala Training: Golden Key

with Michael Greenleaf
February 7 / 12:00 AM - February 9 / 12:00 AM

Drawing wisdom from the Shambhala root text The Letter of the Golden Key, we work with our relationship to the “material world” and our sense perceptions by learning the practice of enriching presence—the ability to instantly sense the inner wealth within oneself, phenomena, and the natural world.

Golden Key is the last class of the Sacred Path series and introduces further practices of warriorship, that extend the basic meditation training. These practices are based on a societal vision and aspiration to help the world. This level of training cultivates one's dignity and natural gifts that are able to widen one's sphere of compassionate and practical influence.

During a series of visionary experiences that took place between 1976 and 1980, Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche wrote down what became known as the Shambhala terma, a series of texts. "The Sacred Path of the Warrior" is based on these texts and on the extensive commentaries Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche gave on these teachings and on how to practice them in modern times.

The program will begin at 7:30pm on Friday, February 7 and ends around 4:30pm on Sunday, February 9.
