If we look honestly at our life, we can see it is pervaded by an unending dance between hope and fear. We cannot escape this realization without pulling the wool over our eyes. The teachings of Shambhala invite us to live with an unflinching awareness of this truth, rather than look for a path that will somehow avoid it. They give us the profound message that there is no way out, only a way in and through. In a series of four seminars, we studied this theme as it recurs throughout the work and life of Chögyam Trungpa, exploring its practical application to our own spiritual journey through meditation practice (including the Sadhana of Mahamudra), lectures, group discussion, and poetry reading.
