Way of Shambhala - Rigden: Unconditional Confidence
with Acharya Emeritus Jenny Warwick
The Rigden weekend retreat is the culmination of the Way of Shambhala Everyday Life courses and Shambhala Training retreats. The Rigden is a representation of our basic enlightened nature and embodies the principle of unconditional confidence. Historically, Rigdens were enlightened rulers—those who could “rule their world” based on their unwavering experience of basic goodness.
This retreat is led by a Shambhala acharya and includes a transmission of windhorse practice, and an opportunity to proclaim a commitment to basic goodness by formally taking the Shambhala Vow.
Prerequisite: Wisdom in Everyday Life and Shambhala Training Level V
