Sacred Path: Drala
with Melissa Moore
June 21 / 7:00 PM - June 23 / 12:00 PM
DRALA is the third program in the Sacred Path series and introduces further warriorship practices that extend the basic meditation training. These practices are based on a societal vision and aspiration to help the world.
During a series of visionary experiences that took place between 1976 and 1980, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche wrote down the Shambhala texts. The Sacred Path is based on these texts and on his extensive commentaries. These teachings are particularly intended to benefit beings who experience difficulties in this modern time.
Through exploring the depth of perception, one engages the elemental and magical strength inherent in the world. The principle of drala refers to the sacred energy and power that exists when we step beyond aggression.
Prerequisite: Completion of 'Great Eastern Sun' and 'Windhorse' Sacred Path programs.
Opportunity for Continued Study: Sacred Path Study: Reflections of the Cosmic Mirror which begins Tuesday, June 25th.
