Description

The Magical Essence of Shambhala

The teachings of Shambhala are an authentic contemporary expression of timeless wisdom, with parallels not only to Buddhism, but also to indigenous cultures throughout the world. We can realize this wisdom directly through the practice of meditation, which brings genuine confidence, inner freedom, and a heartfelt appreciation of the sacredness of ordinary life.

In this training we will explore the basic principles of Shambhala as originally presented by Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche. We will guide students through the foundation practices of mindfulness and awareness, and introduce the principles of windhorse and drala, practices that awaken our inner life force and connection to the sacred dimensions of the world.

In the 1970s and 80s, Frank and Bill worked closely with Chogyam Trungpa in presenting the Shambhala teachings, and they both have explored and expressed Shambhala principles in their lives in the subsequent decades. This weekend will include guided meditation and somatic practices drawn from Tibetan yoga and other sources. There will be much time for discussion and exchange. New and experienced students equally welcome!

Our schedule will run from 9:00 to 5:00 on Saturday and Sunday, with a break each day from 12:30 to 2:00. Please make your own plans for lunch (you are welcome to bring your lunch). Yoga attire is not necessary, but do wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing. Meditation cushions will be provided.

Note: There will be a free public talk and introduction to the weekend on Friday, November 17th. The location is the same as for the program: Dharma Ocean 4676 Broadway, Boulder, CO 80304.
