with Mathias Pongracz
March 2 / 5:00 AM - March 9 / 6:00 AM




This week will contain the following three levels of the Way of Shambhala 2.

You are warmy invited to arrive one day earlier, on March 1, in order to fully celebrate Shambhala day with us!

Great Eastern Sun

This programme teaches how to see the Great Eastern Sun, the primordial energy and brilliance that is the basis of all that exists; an introduction to membership in Shambhala—a living context for building a sane society.


One studies the text that gives the instruction for “raising windhorse,” which opens the heart and refreshes one's confidence. The 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.


Through exploring the depth of perception, one engages the elemental and magical strength inherent in the world. The principle of drala refers to the sacred energy and power that exists when we step beyond aggression.
