The Virtuous Leader: Shambhala Governance and the I Ching
Acharya Dan Hessey introduced his new translation of the I Ching as a map of how leaders evolve Enlightened Society, combining Shambhala wisdom with the practial advice of the I Ching.
Teacher: Acharya Daniel Hessey
Coordinator: Nathan Railla
Each of us holds a leadership role in our lives: in work, play, relationships and especially practice. As leaders, we are challenged to work in a society that is not organized around human goodness, and therefore creates unnecessary suffering.
In this course Acharya Dan Hessey introduced his new translation of the I Ching as a map of how leaders evolve Enlightened Society. This is a fascinating confluence of the view and practice of the Shambhala teachings and the profound and practical advice for leaders found in the I Ching. Participants will receive the text and commentary for four hexagrams from Acharya Hessey's new translation.
We will spend 4 sessions together delving into this unique topic. Acharya Hessey has spent the last 8 years working on this topic of Enlightened Society and the I Ching. It will be one of the first times this exclusive topic is being offered!
Acharya Daniel Hessey has been a student of Shambhala Buddhism since 1971 and has taught extensively throughout the U.S. and South America. Since 2004, he has studied the I Ching with Eva Wong, a Taoist Qigong lineage holder and translator of classical Chinese texts. Dan is also a former director of Shambhala Mountain Center.
