Holiday Werma Intensive with Acharya Christie Cashman:$80 nightly
Acharya Christie Cashman
November 18–24, 2011
Our intent is to encourage and support intensive practice opportunities for Shambhala community members. Therefore we are making this program available to all qualified Werma practitioners by offering it under Shambhala Mountain’s generosity policy. The policy provides the opportunity for participants to pay what they can afford by selecting one of three pricing options. The first option is Shambhala Mountain’s regular room and board rates.
For those who can not afford to pay our regular room and board rates, our second option is a flat room and board rate of $80 per night. Your accommodations will be the best we have available (up to single Lodge room with shared bathroom facilities) after accommodating all participants paying our regular rates. Priority for best-available housing will be on a first-come first-served basis. We will not be able to confirm which housing you will be assigned until one week prior to the program start date.
For those requiring substantial financial assistance, our third option $50 per night for seasonal dorm accommodations.
There will also be an opportunity during the program to offer a teachers gift.
Acharya Christie Cashman entered the Shambhala Buddhist teachings in 1971, dedicating herself to intensive study and practice, and eventually teaching a full range of courses, from introductory meditation intensives at Naropa University to Vajrayana sadhana classes and Shambhala Training levels. For many years she worked closely with Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche on curriculum design and implementation. From 1999 to 2003 she served as international executive director of Shambhala Training, and today she continues to engage in Shambhala and Buddhist curriculum development and the training of teachers. Christie and her husband live in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Financial aid is available for this program.
