Raising windhorse is raising a wind of delight and power and riding on that energy....the personal experience of this wind comes as a feeling of being completely and powerfully in the present -- Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche

In this Sacred Path program we 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. The practice is a way to bring about skillful and heartfelt social engagement, enabling the warrior to go forward in the midst of whatever challenges occur.

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!
