Room: EAGLE ROCK SHAMBHALA- Main Shrine Room- 963 Colorado Blvd, 90041

Pre-requisites apply to enroll in this program (see below).  

We invite eligible students to participate in Great Eastern Sun, the first weekend program in the Sacred Path, a series of weekend meditation and study programs, similar to the Heart of Warriorship, designed to further deepen your experience of meditation and contemplation practice, and to introduce you to studying specific Shambhala texts. It is an opportunity to learn further methods for opening the heart, perceiving the inherent richness of the world, developing steadiness of mind and increasing delight and bravery in the midst of challenging life situations. This path is not about personal attainment so much as a way to engage with the world and bring about skillful and heart-full social engagement.

Pre-requisites: Completion of Way of Shambhala I (Shambhala Training Levels I-V and Rigden weekend required. Completion of the In Everyday Life series is also recommended).

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.
