Great Eastern Sun: An Introduction to the Sacred Path

with Eric Watson
September 27 / 7:00 PM - September 28 / 6:00 PM

Building on the foundation established in the prerequisite Shambhala Training Levels I to V, the Sacred Path program introduces further warriorship practices 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 the Shambhala texts. The Sacred Path 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.

Great Eastern Sun
This weekend program, in beautiful Nelson, British Columbia, teaches how to see the Great Eastern Sun, the primordial energy and brilliance that is the basis of all that exists, and introduces membership in Shambhala, a living context for building a sane society.
