Extraordinary Perception: The Practice of Sacred World


with Richard John
October 3 / 7:00 PM - October 5 / 4:00 PM

It is with excitement that the Shambhala Center of Atlanta invites you
(Shambhala tantrikas, sadhakas, and Scorpion Seal practitioners) to
attend the "Extraordinary Perception: The Practice of Sacred World"
weekend intensive
with Acharya Richard John.

It is the Sakyong's wish that all Shambhala tantrikas receive this text; the
Atlanta Shambhala Center is offering the unique opportunity to receive
it in the context of a weekend-long program, most other places it is being
offered as a one day program. Participants are encouraged to attend the
entire program if possible. Partial attendance is also welcome. Please
note, if you wish to receive the lung you must attend the entire first day of
the intensive.



PROGRAM DETAILS


This weekend practice intensive will introduce a powerful new
text by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. This text will be given at
Sacred World Assembly from now on, and it will be the main
text for the Shambhala Ritual Academy. It is the Sakyong’s
wish that all Shambhala tantrikas—new and senior—receive it.

This program will include talks by Acharya John, a lung and presentation
of the text, and formless meditation practice using pith instructions
drawn from mahamudra texts and Shambhala Dzokchen by the
Sakyong. During practice sessions, participants may do their primary
kyerim practice: Werma, Rigden Ngondro, or Vajrayogini.
The program will conclude with a Werma Feast.

Participants are encouraged to attend the entire program if possible.
Partial attendance is also welcome, but in order to receive the lung
participants are required to attend the entire first day.
