Rigden: Unconditional Confidence is a weekend led by an Acharya in the Shambhala tradition, introducing further principles of warriorship. This is the point on the path when one takes the Shambhala Vow, which is offered at the conclusion of the weekend. The Rigden represents our inherent enlightened nature and embodies the principle of unconditional bravery. Historically, Rigdens were enlightened rulers: those who could rule their world based on their unwavering experience of basic goodness.

Prerequisites: Shambhala Training Weekends I-V and the five "Everyday Life" courses (Meditation, Contentment, Joy, Fearlessness, and Wisdom).

In the past, taking the Shambhala Vow of Basic Goodness has been a part of this program (and is always optional). This vow will not be given during this program, but an opportunity to do it at a later time with Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche will be made available.

 

With the great problems now facing human society, the Rigden weekend emphasizes connecting with one's innate goodness to manifest genuine confidence and bravery when engaging in the challenges in one's life and in the world.

Note: There is a $50 material fee included with the price for the weekend.
