Meek / Perky - Sacred Path Series
with Jon Barbieri & Chris Stockinger
March 1 / 7:00 PM - March 3 / 6:00 PM
Prerequisites: Drala - Sacred Path Series
“The Four Dignities” are introduced as a path and a process, which describe a warrior's maturing and widening sphere of benevolent engagement in the world. The training in the dignities allows one to maintain awareness and delight at each stage.
MEEK is a study of the grounded, humble and gentle beginning stages of a warrior's journey. Here one trains to overcome arrogance—the primary obstacle to learning.
PERKY focuses on cultivating sharp, vibrant and uplifted energy through natural discipline. Overcoming the trap of doubt, the warrior of perky is able to accomplish his or her activities with a sense of nobility and ease.
The Sacred Path follows the Heart of Warriorship program with the introduction of further warriorship practices that extend the basic meditation training. These practices are based on a societal vision and aspiration to help the world.
During a series of visionary experiences that took place between 1976 and 1980, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche wrote down the Shambhala texts. The Sacred Path is based on these texts and on the extensive commentaries Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche gave on these teachings and on how to practice them in modern times.
"The Dignities of Shambhala: A Sourcebook for the Sacred Path of the Warrior" is required and will be handed out during the weekend. The Material Fee is $25.00.
