Six Talks on the Protector Principle and Protectors

September 5th—October 10th

Date details +

    This course, based on a series of recorded talks by Walker Blaine, explores the protector principle and the protector chants. It focuses on understanding the purpose of the different protector chants, the meaning of protector principle, and how the protector principle applies to everyday life.

    Each class will begin with the Shambhala Lineage Supplication and a short White Tara practice, followed by the talk and discussion.

    There are no prerequisites for this program. It is open to people at all levels of practice. We will meet for six consecutive Thursdays, from 7-9 pm, starting on September 5th. We will listen to the video talk together, and then have a discussion.

    No registration is required. You are welcome to come for all six classes or drop in for one or two. No commitment needed to come every week. It will be wonderful to explore the protector principles together!

    Suggested donation: $10-20 per class or pay what you can afford.
