Golden Key

Valerie Lorig

July 22–26, 2013

Tuition $200 + 4 nights

Drawing wisdom from the Shambhala root text The Letter of the Golden Key, we work with our relationship to the “material world” and our sense perceptions by learning the practice of enriching presence—the ability to instantly sense the inner wealth within oneself, phenomena, and the natural world.

This program is a requirement for attending Warrior Assembly. The price of this program includes the text you will receive.
