Rigden: Unconditional Confidence


December 12 / 7:00 PM - December 14 / 6:00 PM

Rigden: Unconditional Confidence


Prerequisite: Wisdom in Everyday Life, Shambhala Training Level V, and, if possible, The Basic Goodness of Reality


The Rigden weekend retreat is the culmination of the Everyday Life, Shambhala Training and Basic Goodness series. The Rigden is a representation of our basic enlightened nature and embodies the principle of unconditional confidence. Historically, Rigdens were enlightened rulers— those who could “rule their world” based on their unwavering experience of basic goodness. This retreat is led by a Shambhala acharya and includes a transmission of “windhorse” practice and an opportunity to proclaim a commitment to basic goodness by formally taking the Shambhala Vow.
