Sacred Path: Golden Key

with Gayle Van Gils
July 10 / 7:00 PM - July 13 / 5:00 PM

Through exploring the depth of perception, one engages the elemental and magical strength inherent in the world around us.  

This extended weekend presents the teachings from the Shambhala root text The Letter of the Golden Key. These teachings explore our relationship to the “material world” through our sense perceptions. We will learn the practice of enriching presence—the ability to instantly sense the inner wealth within ourselves, phenomena, and the natural world.

There is a $50 materials fee for the root text and the commentary.

Pre-requisite: Shambhala Sacred Path of Warriorship: Outrageous and Inscrutable

Generosity Policy


The St. Petersburg Shambhala Meditation Center thrives due to the generosity of its program participants, friends and members. Recognizing that generosity, trust and openness are interconnected, we offer all of our programs on a suggested-donation basis and welcome participants to donate less or more than the suggested amounts as they choose.


Our programs offer three pricing options: the full program price, the patron price, and the pay-what-you-can-afford option.


If the program price is an obstacle for you, please pay what you can afford by entering the amount into the "Or pay what you can afford (enter your amount below)" box.


For those who are inspired to offer more than the program price you may pay the "patron price." Your generosity in offering this amount helps us to cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price.
