Extraordinary Perception: The Practice of Sacred World

with Richard John
May 8 / 8:30 AM - May 8 / 8:00 PM

Registration for this program is now closed.

Restricted to Shambhala tantrikas, 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.

The 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 9:00 AM, after tea). Once the text is published by Shambhala Media in April, it will be made available to all tantrikas who have received the lung.

Schedule: Thursday, May 8, 8:30 AM – 8:00 PM

Prices (including $45.00 for text): SUGGESTED: $85.00. Generosity Policy applies. PATRON (for participants who wish to offer more than the suggested price to help cover the costs for those unable to pay that amount): $100.00. In addition, we will provide an opportunity to express appreciation and support for Acharya John and his teaching by collecting a monetary gift for him.
