The Sacred Path is a series of weekend retreats that extend our basic meditation training and deepen the practice of warriorship. The series is based on a societal vision and aspiration to help the world. This level of training cultivates dignity to widen our sphere of compassionate and helpful influence.

The Sacred Path consists of the following weekend programs, taken in this sequence:

Great Eastern Sun & Windhorse

Drala

Meek & Perky

Outrageous & Inscrutable

Golden Key

TRACK 1: FALL 2018 – SPRING 2019

Great Eastern Sun & Windhorse w/ Timothy Quigley
September 14th-16th
This long weekend program (all day Friday, Saturday & Sunday) kicks off the Sacred Path with teachings on how to see the Great Eastern Sun, the primordial energy and brilliance that is the basis of all that exists. We will also 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.

Drala w/ John Sennhauser 
November 9th-11th
The principle of drala refers to the sacred energy and power that exists when we step beyond aggression. Here we are introduced to teachings that invite us to sharpen our awareness of the subtle, unseen energies of our world. Through exploring the depth of perception, one engages the elemental and magical strength inherent in the environment.

Meek & Perky
March 29th-31st
“The four dignities” are introduced as a path and a process, which describe a warrior’s maturing and widening sphere of benevolent engagement in the world. The training in the dignities allows one to maintain awareness and delight at each stage.

Outrageous & Inscrutable
April 26th-28th
These fruitional dignities refer to the extraordinary skill of a practiced warrior. No longer afraid of making mistakes, the unconventional and visionary perspective of the outrageous warrior combines with the skill of spontaneous inscrutability to create benefit for others on a large scale.

Golden Key
June 6th-9th
Drawing wisdom from The Letter of the Golden Key, a Shambhala root text that addresses our relationship to the material world and our sense perceptions, we will learn the practice of enriching presence — the ability to instantly sense the inner wealth within ourselves, phenomena, and the natural world.
