Rigden Weekend: Unconditional Confidence

with Moh Hardin
May 9 / 7:00 PM - May 11 / 5:00 PM

Program Registration is Closed.Please contact David Seabrook at

The contentment, joy, fearlessness, and wisdom explored in the Way of Shambhala culminate in unconditional confidence. 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 workshop introduces the teachings of enlightened leadership.

With the great problems now facing human society, it seems increasingly important to find simple ways to bring compassionate and strong leadership to the world, even in small ways. This weekend emphasizes genuine confidence and steadfastness in facing the world's challenges and includes a formal transmission of windhorse practice, and study of the Six Ways of Ruling.

Please note that registration for this program will close on April 15.
