Shambhala Training: Outrageous and Inscrutable

with Benoît Côté
March 14 / 7:30 PM - March 16 / 7:00 PM

These two fruitional dignities – connected with the garuda and the dragon - refer to the extraordinary skill of a practical warrior. No longer afraid of making mistakes, the unconditional and visionary perspective of the outrageous warrior combines with the skill of spontaneous inscrutability to create benefit for others on a large scale.


This program will be directed by Shastri Benoît Côté.
