Shambhala Training Sacred Path: Meek and Perky (Westside)

with Robert Lehmann
March 22 / 7:30 PM - March 24 / 6:00 PM

To repeat a weekend: $60

The four dignities are introduced as both path and 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.
