In 1978, the Venerable Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche gave a small number of senior students essential instructions on how to present Shambhala Training: a new series of introductory meditation programs based on the terma teachings he had only recently received.
This seminal set of 17 talks by Trungpa Rinpoche, known as the Shambhala Directors Training program, became the core of the Shambhala Training Graduate Programs, as well as the primer for program Directors at all levels. The course teachers—many of whom attended the original teachings—have offered commentary to illuminate Trungpa Rinpoche’s presentations.
These audio recordings provide profound insight into the complete joining of our human reality with sacred warrior training and the Shambhala Terma.
This course will review Trungpa Rinpoche’s original presentation of the Shambhala path and provide a context in which to contemplate our own path as Shambhala Warriors in this world now.
