Please join us for the Drala Weekend 30 Sept – 2 Oct by David Hope
Shambhala’s 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.
In Drala, we will deepen our perception as we engage with the elemental and magical strength inherent in the phenomenal world. The principle of drala refers to the sacred energy and power that exists when we step beyond aggression.
David Hope has been a student of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche for the past 40 years. He helped establish the London Shambhala Centre in the early 1980’s. He set up Shambhala Training in Britain in 1983 and organised it for many years. Since then he has taught widely in Europe and other countries worldwide, including Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. He has been involved with Dechen Chöling, our residential practice centre in France, since its beginnings in 1995, as one of the first co-directors, and in many other ways. In 2005 he was appointed as Acharya or senior teacher for the Shambhala community, an official position from which he resigned in the June 2020. He continues to teach throughout the Shambhala Community.
