Four Dignities

with Chuck Whetsell
May 14 / 5:00 PM - May 20 / 12:00 PM

“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. 
Prerequisite: Drala

Register for Meek only: $175 + 2 nights

Perky is the second of the four dignities and 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. Prerequisite: Meek

Register for Perky only: $175 + 2 nights

Outrageous and Inscrutable
 are the third and fourth dignities, which emphasize fruition of the extraordinary skill of a practiced warrior. 
No longer afraid of making mistakes, the unconventional and visionary perspective of the outrageous warrior combines with the skill of spontaneous inscrutability to create benefit for others on a large scale. Prerequisite: Meek and Perky
