    Room: Calgary Buddhist Temple

    Open to those who have completed Shambhala Training Level V: Open Sky, this afternoon session helps to orient us to the Primordian Rigden: Unconditional Confidence program held in Edmonton in November.  

    The topics we will cover are being prepared by Acharya Chapman - for this particular program! Even if you are not attending the Rigden program this fall, please feel free come and hear about what it entails. Below you will find a description of the Rigden: Unconditional Confidence.

    From Shambhala International, "The Rigden is a representation of our enlightened nature and embodies the principle of unconditional confidence. Historically, Rigdens were enlightened rulers— those who could “rule their world” based on their unwavering experience of basic goodness. This retreat is led by a Shambhala master teacher (acharya) and includes a transmission of “windhorse” practice and an opportunity to proclaim a commitment to basic goodness by formally taking the Shambhala Vow."
