Having developed trust in basic goodness we can appreciate the freedom of 'open sky' and celebrate our journey along the path of warriorship.

Letting go is having the courage to fully manifest and give up our reservations, hesitations and logics. Having made friends with ourselves through the practice of meditation we can relax and live our sensitivity and tenderness. Through this we discover the joy of discipline, living each moment fully awake. This naturally connects us to others and caring for our world. The sun of goodness shines in the vast open sky of freedom from fixed mind. 

Peter Conradi is a free-lance writer. His many books include Going Buddhist. Iris Murdoch: a Life and  At the Bright Hem of God. In 1978-80 Peter was an Exchange Professor at the University of Colorado in Boulder where he first encountered meditation.  He describes reading Chögyam Trungpa’s Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism as a life-changing experience and a direct transmission. Shortly after he discovered the fledgling London Shambhala Meditation Centre nearby.

In 1990-92 Peter taught at the Jagiellonian University Krakow, Poland, and helped facilitate the pioneer Shambhala Training Levels there. In 1997 he took early retirement from Kingston University, where he was Professor of English and Head of Department to write. He was one of the first generation of Shastris or senior teachers in 2010, when he was also elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature (FRSL). He has led many Dathuns and fortnightly retreats - around one year in aggregate.
