Shambhala Training: Golden Key

with Shastri Donna Williams

February 4 - 7

Drawing on wisdom from The Letter of the Golden Key, a Shambhala root text that addresses our relationship to the phenomenal world and our sense perceptions, we will learn the practice of Enriching Presence, the ability to instantly sense the inner wealth within ourselves, phenomena and the natural world.

There is an estimated materials fee of $75 for this program.

This program will begin at 7:30pm on February 4, 2017 and end around 5:00pm on February 7, 2017.


Completion of Shambhala Training: Outrageous and Inscrutable.
