EXTRAORDINARY PERCEPTION: THE PRACTICE OF SACRED WORLD
One-Day Program For Shambhala Tantrikas
with Acharya Richard John
This one-day practice intensive will introduce a powerful new text by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. The text will be given to students at Sacred World Assembly from now on, it will be the main text for the Shambhala Ritual Academy, and it is the Sakyong’s wish that all Shambhala tantrikas—new and senior--receive it.
This program will include talks by Acharya John, a lung for the text, meditation practice using pith instructions drawn from mahamudra texts and Shambhala Dzokchen by the Sakyong, and a Werma feast.
In order to receive the lung, participants are required to attend the entire day, beginning at 8:30 [or 9:00} am. After the text is published by Shambhala Media in April, it will be made available to all tantrikas who have received the lung.
Suggested Price: $85.00 (Includes $45 for text); Patron Price: $100.00; The Victoria Shambhala Centre's Generosity Policy applies to this program
