The Virtuous Leader: Shambhala Governance and the I Ching's teachings on Warriorship

with Daniel Hessey
January 29 / 6:30 PM - March 12 / 8:00 PM

Each of us hold a leadership role in our lives: in work, play, relationships and especially practice. As leaders, we are challenged to work in a society that is not organized around human goodness, and therefore creates unnecessary suffering.


In this class Acharya Dan Hessey will introduce his new translation of the I Ching as a map of how leaders evolve Enlightened Society. This is a fascinating confluence of the view and practice of the Shambhala teachings and the profound and  practical advice for leaders found in the I Ching.  Participants will receive the text and commentary for four hexagrams from Acharya Hessey's new translation.


We will spend 4 Wednesday nights together, along with many groups online, delving into this unique topic.  Acharya Hessey has spent over the last 8 years working on this topic of Enlightened Society and the I Ching.  It will be one of the first times this exclusive topic is being offered!

Acharya Daniel Hessey has been a student of Shambhala Buddhism since 1971 and has taught extensively throughout the U.S. and South America. Since 2004, he has studied the I Ching with Eva Wong, a Taoist Qigong lineage holder and translator of classical Chinese texts. Dan is also a former director of Shambhala Mountain Center.
