We are delighted to offer the Shambhala Household Training residential retreat with the Druk Sakyong Wangmo, Lady Diana Mukpo at Dorje Denma Ling.
Lady Diana will draw upon her experience creating court with the Druk Sakyong to guide participants in the practice of manifesting Court in their daily lives. Shambhala Household practice provides a guide for bringing Shambhala principles into our homes and establishing household as a practice, rather than a concept. On this path, first we look inward and appreciate the resources that we already possess. We have our five senses, our creativity and our intrinsic potential for generosity. Creating a Shambhala household can be an enriching and sane experience that we establish for ourselves, our families and those people who we invite into our homes.
The residential Shambhala Household program will be an experiential and interactive opportunity to unpack the teachings. We will work with our environment and create Household together. We will gather materials from local sources, arrange them elegantly, cook our meals together and then enjoy serving each other the fruits of our activity. As Lady Diana has said, “Creating uplifted households together will help us establish Shambhala culture and enlightened society as a whole. Having had the good fortune to be a part of the establishment of the first Kalapa Court, I look forward to sharing these teachings with our sangha. “
This program welcomes everyone who has attended Rigden Weekend: Unconditional Confidence or the equivalent. If you have not met this pre-requisite and feel a strong connection to the Shambhala Household path please submit a letter explaining why you feel this program would be of benefit for you and those around you. These requests will be reviewed by our team and acceptance to the program will be made on an individual case by case basis. Those who have not yet received the Shambhala Household lung will have an opportunity to receive both the lung and the text.
This program is for all levels of practitioners on the Shambhala Household path and is an enrichment for all Householders and those planning to host local Household activities in their communities. This program is a required part of training to become a teacher in the Shambhala Household path. If you are inspired to deepen your connection to these teachings and potentially lead weekend programs in the future, this is the perfect place to begin.
Please stay tuned for further details and for registration.
