The Way of Shambhala I culminates in the Rigden Weekend. The Rigden is a representation of our basic enlightened nature and embodies the principle of unconditional 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, we need to find simple ways to bring compassionate and strong leadership to the world. This weekend emphasizes genuine confidence and steadfastness in facing the world’s challenges and includes a formal transmission of windhorse practice. The Rigden Weekend also includes the opportunity to take the Shambhala Vow and receive a Shambhala Name. The Shambhala Vow is an acknowledgement and proclamation that basic goodness is the essential nature of humanity.

Prerequisites: Completion of Level V and IEL classes. If you have questions about the prerequisits for the program, please contact Gail McDonald @ [email protected] Cost of the program includes a $40 materials fee.  An opportunity to contribute a heart gift donation for the Acharya will be offered.
