The MARBURG Shambhala Centre is pleased to offer a weekend education programme hosted by the Desung Arm of the Dorje Kasung Facilitated by Sibylle Fraund, Kadö and Irene Vliegenthart, Rupön
June 12-14 2015
Question : What would you do if there were no conflict?
Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche: “It would be deadly. Working with conflict is precisely the idea of walking the spiritual path. The path is a wild, winding mountain road with all kind of curves; there are wild animals, attacks by bandits, all kinds of situations cropping up. As far as the occupation of our mind is concerned, the chaos of the path is the fun.” – Chögyam Trungpa – Dawn of Tantra
…”the fact that our society is experiencing a high level of fear and doubt is a signal for humanity not to give up, but rather to engage further with our enlightened tendencies” – Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche – The Shambhala Principle
The weekend is a precious training opportunity for desung and for kasung with an interest in desung practice. Members of Social Health and Well-Being are warmly invited, as well as anyone who holds a leadership position within the Shambhala mandala, including directors, council members, teachers and meditation instructors and meditation guides.
The Dorje Kasung serves under the leadership of the Makkyi Rabjam, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, inspired by the vision of its founder, the Makkyi Rabjam, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche.
The commitment of the Dorje Kasung is to benefit others and bring about VICTORY OVER WAR.
The desung work with aspects of the mandala to promote harmony, and well-being.
CONFLICT can arise in any situation or society and the Shambhala teachings developed many skilful means to work with difficult situations in our society.
This training aims to deepen our connection with basic goodness so that kindness and steadiness prevail even in speedy and chaotic situations. It will examine how to realize and integrate that vision into Shambhala councils and communities, and develop confidence in caring for situations of disharmony or obstruction.
Public talk: Friday 12th June 2015 – 7.30 pm to 9. pm
Saturday and Sunday 13th and 14th June – 10am to 6.30 pm
