Program Details

Great Eastern Sun & Windhorse Weekend

with Ginny Evans & Brian Callahan & Margaret Jones Callahan
January 16 / 6:30 PM - January 18 / 6:00 PM

Pre requisite: Shambhala Training Level V – Open Sky

The Sacred Path begins with the program Great Eastern Sun. This program teaches how to see the Great Eastern Sun, the primordial energy and brilliance that is the basis of all that exists; an introduction to membership in Shambhala - a living context for building a sane society.

The teachings introduce advanced warriorship practices that extend the basic mindfulness-awareness meditation training introduced in Levels I-V. These practices are based on a societal vision and aspiration to help the world. This level of training cultivates one’s dignity and natural gifts that are able to widen one’s sphere of compassionate and practical influence.

In Windhorse we begin studying the root text, The Letter of the Black Ashe which includes the instruction for “raising windhorse,” a practice for opening the heart and refreshing one's confidence. The practice is a way to attune one’s personal energy and presence and to bring about skillful and heartfelt social engagement, enabling the warrior to go forward in the midst of whatever challenges occur.
