Drawing wisdom from The Letter of the Golden Key, a Shambhala root text that addresses our relationship to the material world and our sense perceptions, we will learn the practice of enriching presence — the ability to instantly sense the inner wealth within ourselves, phenomena, and the natural world.
Note: The program runs for three full days. The program price includes a $65 material fee. Students will receive The Letter of the Golden Key and the Golden Key Sourcebook.
This weekend retreat is the culmination of the Sacred Path program and is a requirement to attend Warrior's Assembly.
