The Rigden is a representation of our basic enlightened nature and embodies the principle of unconditional bravery. Historically, rigdens were enlightened rulers — those who could rule their world based on their unwavering experience of basic goodness.

The contentment, joy, fearlessness, and wisdom of the Way of Shambhala culminate in unconditional confidence. This weekend workshop introduces the teachings of enlightened rulership. 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. This weekend emphasizes genuine confidence and steadfastness in facing the world's challenges. Confidence can come from genuineness and wakefulness instead of aggression.
