Sacred Path: Great Eastern Sun

with Jonathan Herson
July 18 / 7:00 PM - July 20 / 5:00 PM

The vision of the Great Eastern Sun is the entrance into sacred world and the practice of creating an uplifted and sane society. This program teaches how to see the Great Eastern Sun, the primordial energy and brilliance that is the basis of all that exists.

The Sacred Path presents a vision of Shambhala as a living example of a sane society and introduces warriorship practices that extend the meditation training given in the first year of the Way of Shambhala. In particular, the Sacred Path introduces students to the first text of the Shambhala Terma, or treasure teachings. These treasure teachings present a societal vision and aspiration to help the world in these difficult times.

Prerequisites: Shambhala Training Levels I-V and the "In Everyday Life" series. Completion of the Basic Goodness courses and Rigden Weekend are strongly encouraged.
