This program is the culmination of the Way of Shambhala I.  It is a weekend that emphasizes genuine confidence and steadfastness in facing the world's challenges. The contentment, joy, fearlessness and wisdom of the Way of Shambhala culminates in unconditional confidence.

This weekend workshop led by Acharya Moh Hardin introduces the teachings of enlightened leadership. With the great problems now facing human society, it seems increasingly important to find simple ways to bring compassionate and strong leadership to the world, even in small ways.


The Rigden Weekend includes the opportunity to take the new Shambhala Vow and receive a Shambhala name. The Shambhala Vow is an acknowledgement and proclamation that basic goodness is the essential nature of humanity. Family and friends of participants are welcome to witness the vow ceremony on Sunday afternoon and attend the reception afterward.


For those who choose to take the Shambhala Vow, a brief minute naming interview will be scheduled with Acharya Hardin and Sangyum Grieve.  Once you have registered, you will be contacted to set up an interview.
