Shambhala Training Retreat: Great Eastern Sun, Windhorse and Drala

with Timothy Quigley

February 22 - March 1, 2019

Mukpo Institute This program may be taken on its own or as part of the Mukpo Institute, a three-month residential program.

Tree

The Sacred Path program 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 his or her aspiration to create an enlightened society.

The beauty of this retreat is the depth to which the power of windhorse and the magical quality of drala can be explored and experienced. The topics are completely interrelated and meant to be understood as a whole. Therefore we encourage full participation.

Great Eastern Sun

The vision of the Great Eastern Sun is the entrance into sacred world and the practice of creating an uplifted and sane society. This program teaches how to see the Great Eastern Sun, the primordial energy and brilliance that is the basis of all that exists.

Windhorse

Participants study the Vidyadhara's terma text, The Letter of the Black Ashe, which gives the instruction for "raising windhorse." The practice of windhorse opens the heart and refreshes one's confidence. It is a way to bring about skillful and heartfelt social engagement, enabling the warrior to go forward in the midst of whatever challenges occur.

Drala

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.

These programs may be taken individually or as one continuous retreat.
