Note: For the convenience of ESA applicants, this program is scheduled the weekend before Enlightened Society Assembly.
The contentment, joy, fearlessness, and wisdom explored in the Way of Shambhala culminates in the Rigden retreat. The Rigden is a representation of our basic enlightened nature and embodies the principles of unconditional confidence and bravery.
Historically, Rigdens were enlightened rulers—those who could “rule their world” based on their unwavering experience of basic goodness. With the great problems now facing human society, it seems increasingly important to find simple ways to bring compassionate and strong leadership to the world.
During this retreat we will explore the teachings of enlightened leadership and personal realization. As a support for facing life’s challenges and to proclaim a commitment to basic goodness, students will also receive a transmission of “windhorse” practice and take the Shambhala Vow.
Prerequisites: Wisdom in Everyday Life and Shambhala Training Level V
