Prerequisite: Rigden Weekend (or permission of the instructors). Open to graduates of Shambhala Training Weekend V who plan to complete Rigden Weekend in the future.

Greast Eastern Sun and Windhorse mark the beginning of the Shambhala Training Sacred Path, which introduces advanced warriorship practices that extend the basic mindfulness-awareness meditation training introduced in Weekends I-V. 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.

This long weekend program (all day Friday, Saturday & Sunday) teaches how to see the Great Eastern Sun, the primordial energy and brilliance that is the basis of all that exists. We will also begin studying the root text, The Letter of the Black Ashe, which includes the instruction for raising windhorse, a practice for opening the heart and refreshing one's confidence.
