What you'll learn in this self improvement class:

Through exploring the depth of perception, one engages the elemental and magical strength inherent in the world. The principle of drala refers to the sacred energy and power that exist when we step beyond dualism.

When we draw down the power and depth of vastness into a single perception, then we are discovering and invoking magic. By magic we do not mean unnatural power over the phenomenal world, but rather the discovery of innate or primordial wisdom in the world as it is. ... In Tibetan, this magical quality of existence, or natural wisdom, is called drala. "Dra" means "enemy" or "opponent" and "la" means "above." So drala literally means "above the enemy," "beyond the enemy." Drala is the unconditioned wisdom and power of the world that are beyond any dualism; therefore drala is above any enemy or conflict. It is wisdom beyond aggression. —Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, from Shambhala: Sacred Path of the Warrior

Prerequisite: Sacred Path II: Windhorse

The Sacred Path series of weekend meditation and study programs is designed to further deepen your experience of meditation and contemplation practice. It is an opportunity to learn further methods for opening the heart, perceiving the inherent richness of the world, and developing steadiness of mind. These practices are based on a societal vision and aspiration to help the world in these difficult times.

Please note

This program is being offered outdoors. We will spend the weekend camping on a property owned by friends of the sangha, at the base of Palomar Mountain (about an hour drive from San Diego). If you are planning to attend the program, it is important to register as soon as possible so we can communicate with you about plans. Meals from Saturday breakfast through the reception on Sunday are included, and you will need to bring a tent and sleeping bag. Please email [email protected] with any questions.
