Basic training and deepening of the desung path

 "Desung" means bliss or harmony protector. Desung practice is a profound path arising out of the Shambhala Dorje Kasung tradition. It consists of protecting access to innate wisdom by embodying generosity, gentleness and fearlessness in our daily lives. This state of "being" is made possible by increasing trust and confidence in our basic goodness and that of the society in which we live. All situations are viewed as workable, and distress is recognized as a powerful opportunity to open to our basic goodness.

There will be two different and complementing track to this program:

1. First a basic desung training open to kasung who are interested in working with community and willing to work with difficult situations. Shambhala Council members, meditation instructors, and health and wellbeing representatives are also warmly invited to participate.

This track is a prerequisite for Dorje Kasung who wish to apply to become members of the Desung Arm. The training provides further depth to the profound path of the Dorje Kasung.

Dorje Kasung who have some service experience are especially encouraged to attend.


2. The second track will be for desung who are already trained and would like to further their training as well as providing a strong container for the basic training.  During this training we will specifically learn and train in « compassionate exchange » which is a form developed in Karuna Training. There will also be time to discuss our experience with other desungs.

Cost of the program is 70€, that includes breakfasts and lunches in the Shambhala Centre. Dinner on Saturday will be jointly taken in a nearby restaurant, the price will be affordable.
