UNCONDITIONAL CONFIDENCE AND SOCIETY: Bringing the Dralas Down to Earth (Eagle Rock)

with Acharya Daniel Hessey

January 25th—January 26th (2014)

  • $165.00 Patron Price
Room: EAGLE ROCK SHAMBHALA- Main Shrine Room- 963 Colorado Blvd, 90041

All of the Shambhala practices that we receive at Warrior Assembly through the Scorpion Seal Assemblies inspire us in their directness, profundity and vision of a good human society. Naturally, as we practice we become increasingly curious about how to bring this energy fully into the texture of our households, our livelihoods and our everyday lives.

This weekend will be a celebration of this dilemma! We will practice, contemplate and explore as a community what it means to activate the magic of Shambhala not just on the cushion but in every moment of our lives.

There will be group stroke and lungta practice for everyone as well as specific teachings for the different practice levels, including for Scorpion Seal practitioners. On Saturday evening we will celebrate together as Shambhala warriors with good food, offerings, and conversation.  Program price includes the cost of Saturday evening’s catered celebration.

Please join us for this special program!  Open to all who have received stroke and lungta transmission.  

Acharya Daniel Hessey has been a student of Shambhala Buddhism since 1973, and has taught extensively throughout the U.S. and South America. Since 2004, he has studied the I Ching with Eva Wong, a Taoist Qigong lineage holder and translator of classical Chinese texts. Dan is also a former director and board member of Shambhala Mountain Center.

The Shambhala Center of Los Angeles remains open because of the ongoing generosity of our community. One of the cornerstones of our policy is that no one be turned away for lack of funds. If you can’t afford a program, please call our office (323-255-5472) to register based on what you can afford. At the same time, the Center relies on program revenue to cover costs. For those who are able to pay more than the program price, your generosity in paying the Patron Price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price, and provides additional support to the Shambhala Center of Los Angeles. Thank you for your kindness!

If you cancel more than 7 days prior to your class (and have already paid), you will receive a full refund less a processing fee of $15. If you cancel between 1 to 7 days prior to arrival, we will credit your payment towards another program at Shambhala Los Angeles to be used within 1 year. No refunds or credits are issued for cancellations received fewer than 24 hours prior to arrival.
