Rigden Weekend

About us

Warriorship is a continual journey. To be a warrior is to learn to be genuine in every moment of your life.

~Chögyam Trungpa



The Rigden Weekend, led by Acharya Susan Chapman, shows how contentment, joy, fearlessness and wisdom of the Way of Shambhala culminate in unconditional confidence – the foundation of being a Shambhala warrior in the world. Introducing practices of windhorse and drala that may be naturally applied to everyday experience and challenges, this program provides a fundamental step in our journey.

This weekend completes the Way of Shambhala Heart of Warriorship Series & Everyday Life Series.  By the wishes of the Sakyong, the Rigden Weekend includes the opportunity to take the new Shambhala Vow and receive a Shambhala Name. The Shambhala Vow is an acknowledgement and proclamation that basic goodness is the essential nature of humanity.

Family and friends of participants are welcome to witness the vow ceremony on Sunday at 4pm and attend the reception afterward.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
