This weekend looks at how to recognise the habitual patterns that prevent us opening to the experience of basic goodness. How to feel the fear and do it anyway!

After discovering our basic tenderness and intelligence that arises through contacting our basic goodness we also discover why we close down to our fundamental nature. Afraid of our brilliance, afraid of our own fear, we create a cocoon of habitual tendencies and interpretations that keeps us distracted. At the root, fear means the fear of death which means simply the death of “me”.

Ego is the name for all the ideas, images, and feelings we have about who we are or want to be. It is also the root of fear. Stepping out of the cocoon of “me” is a slow process of learning about fear. Through relating properly and thoroughly to fear we discover that the way out is through the way in.

The weekend is non-residential and will take place at Erin Hall in Rondebosch. This is the second in a 2 year series of programmes planned to present the Way of Shambhala and Sacred Path. Prerequisite is Level 1. Please join us on the first step of this path if you possibly can as it will be pre-requisite for the upcoming programmes.
 
The retreat will be lead by visiting Shastri Brian Hilliard form Brussels. At 18 years old Brian Hilliard became a student of Chőgyam Trungpa Rinpoche. He completed the traditional Tibetan three-year retreat at Gampo Abbey in Nova Scotia.  Shastri Brian has completed the advanced levels of training in the Shambhala tradition. He teaches beginning and advanced students meditation for everyday life and Tibetan yoga.
