You are warmly invited to GREAT EASTERN SUN!
GES is the first step in Sacred Path of the Warrior program
GES is the first step in the Sacred Path of the Warrior-
This weekend will look at the view of Great Eastern Sun, the primordial energy and brilliance that is the basis of all that exists. It is also an introduction to membership in the Shambhala Community - a living context for building an enlightened society.
The Sacred Path program introduces further practices of warriorship that extend the basic meditation training. These practices are based on a societal vision and aspiration to help the world. This level of training cultivates one's dignity and natural gifts that are able to widen one's sphere of compassionate and practical influence. During a series of visionary experiences that took place between 1976 and 1980, Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche wrote down what became known as the Shambhala terma, a series of texts. The Sacred Path of the Warrior is based on these texts and on the extensive commentaries Chögyam Trungpa, Rinpoche gave on these teachings and on how to practice them in modern times.
As a way of further entering into the spirit of Warriorship, students of the Sacred Path programs are invited to assume more responsibility for their own program. The sacred path programs are therefore "self-staffed"; which means that participants are encouraged to take on duties such as time-keeping, tea set-up and maintaining the practice container. Training in how to carry out such procedures will be provided during the weekend.
