The Shambhala Sadhana is a unique practice that opens our hearts to recognizing and deepening basic goodness in ourselves, others, and society. 

As human beings we might ask, “Is confidence in our basic goodness manufactured or unmanufactured?”

This series offers an opportunity to refresh, re-enliven, and deepen one’s connection to basic goodness through this profound practice.

The four sessions will delve into topics in Part I of the Shambhala Sadhana Companion book (more info below) and will include a talk, shared inquiry, and practice.

April 24th — The Sadhana: Personal Path, Societal Transformation
May 8th — Sadhana as Dialogue: The Power of a Question
May 22nd—Vulnerable and Tough: Living the Traits of Basic Goodness
June 5th — The Sadhana as a Mirror of Our Culture: An exploration of how we bring the world into the Shambhala Sadhana and the Sadhana into the world.

“The Shambhala Sadhana is a way we engage together in a bit of a ceremony where we work with very powerful themes. Yet at the same time, it is not too esoteric, not too much of a cultural hurdle. It offers us the opportunity to practice together with the themes that so affect us, both as individuals and as a community. In so doing, we begin to see the individual and societal paths as inseparable.”

~ Excerpt from Shambhala Sadhana Companion

Prerequisite: Attendance at Enlightened Society Assembly or the Lung for this practice.
