Golden Key - The Shambhala Sacred Path

with Shastri Donna Williams

February 4 - 7

This program is based on the Shambhala text “The Letter of the Golden Key” which addresses our relationship to our sense perceptions and the material world around us. In this program, you will learn the practice of enriching presence: the ability to instantly sense the inner wealth within oneself, phenomena, and the natural world.

Through Golden Key, the Sacred Path continues to deal with bringing the principles of warriorship and the practice of mindfulness-awareness into daily life. In particular, it is designed to nurture the student's natural ability to experience the world as sacred and one's aspiration to create an enlightened society.

Additional Information

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