Entering the Desung Path

with Dennis Southward and Jan Jercinovic

October 30 - November 1, 2015

"Desung" means bliss or harmony protector. Desung practice is a profound path arising out of the Kasung tradition. It consists of protecting access to innate wisdom by embodying generosity, gentleness and fearlessness in our daily lives. This state of "being" is made possible by increasing trust and confidence in our basic goodness and that of the society in which we live. All situations are viewed as workable, and distress is recognized as a powerful opportunity to open to our basic goodness.

This program is open to Shambhala council members, Guides, Meditation instructors and people in the community who are interested in learning to work with difficult situations. Members of the Dorje Kasung are especially encouraged to attend. This weekend program is a prerequisite for Dorje Kasung who wish to apply to be members of the Desung Arm. The training also provides further depth to the profound path of the Dorje Kasung.

The Friday night presentation is an essential part of the program so please plan to arrive no later than dinner time (6:30 pm). The program will conclude in the late afternoon on Sunday Nov 1. Please plan to attend the entire program. All students are encouraged to read “Put Your Meditation into Action,” by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.
