Hosted by Shambhala Online
Deepen your meditation practice, and continue along the path of the Shambhala teachings on warriorship, in this weekend retreat.
Windhorse builds on the teachings of basic goodness, “cocoon”, fearlessness, inquisitiveness, and openness in Shambhala Training Levels 1-V and the teachings of the Great Eastern Sun—a societal vision and aspiration to help the world manifest a good human society in difficult times.
Participants will explore a text written by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche that gives the instruction for a practice called “raising windhorse.” Windhorse or “lungta” in Tibetan, could be likened to “chi / qi”, or “life force energy.” Participants will learn the practice of “raising windhorse” as an immediate way to open the heart, refresh confidence, and connect with the present moment. This practice is a powerful way to bring about skillful and heartfelt social engagement, enabling the warrior to go forward in the midst of the tremendous challenges we are facing in our world.
