    Wisdom in Everyday Life with Christine Heming

    Each of the "In Everyday Life" courses explores one of the Four Dignities or confidences of Shambhala warriorship: the Tiger of meekness, the Lion of perky, the Garuda of outrageousness, and the Dragon of inscrutability. In the "Wisdom in Everyday Life" course, we explore the Dragon. Inscrutability may appear to pose a challenge as it represents the fruition of the warrior’s path. It may seem out of reach. But at the same time, it is your own innate wisdom, always present and accessible.

    Dragon’s are playful and powerful, joyous and methodical. They dance in space. Come join the dance.

    Participants are asked to commit to at least the full weekend (Thu-Sun). Partial attendance may be possible only if one takes part in the beginning of the retreat.

    As space is limited, priority will be given to full-time participants.

    Weekend only: $195* Mon-Wed: $20 per day*

    *The Shambhala Generosity Policy applies.
