The Way of Shambhala I culminates in the Rigden Weekend. The contentment, joy, fearlessness, and wisdom of the Way of Shambhala culminate in unconditional confidence. Confidence that comes from genuineness and wakefulness instead of aggression.

The Rigden is a representation of our basic enlightened nature and embodies the principle of unconditional bravery. Historically, rigdens were enlightened rulers – those who could rule their world based on their unwavering experience of basic goodness.

With the great problems now facing human society, we need to find simple ways to bring compassionate and strong leadership to the world.

This weekend emphasizes genuine confidence and steadfastness in facing the world’s challenges and includes a formal transmission of windhorse practice. The Rigden Weekend also includes the opportunity to take the Shambhala Vow and receive a Shambhala Name. The Shambhala Vow is an acknowledgement and proclamation that basic goodness is the essential nature of humanity.

We appreciate you registering and paying online. This helps us not only to plan for the program, but speeds up the registration line on the day of the program.

Generosity Policy

The Brunswick Portland Shambhala Center is funded solely by your membership and program donations. Thank you for your generosity as you consider what you can pay for each program at our Center. We strive to price our programs in a way that accurately reflects the financial need of our Center and the cost to us of producing the program.

We have a generosity policy to make our offerings available to all who wish to participate. If the program price is an obstacle for you, please consider what is possible for you in your current situation, and offer as much of the program fee as you can.

For those who can offer more than the program price, we have a “patron price”. Your generosity in offering the patron price helps cover the costs for others who are not able to pay the full price.
