Way of Shambhala II: Sacred Path - Outrageous & Inscrutable


with Jeffrey Stevens
May 3 / 7:00 PM - May 5 / 6:00 PM

Training in the four dignities, Meek, Perky, Outrageous & Inscrutable, we mature as warriors, widening our sphere of benevolent engagement in the world with humility, nobility, vision, upliftedness, and delight.


In the third (Outrageous) and fourth (Inscrutable) of the Four Dignities, we explore the analogies of the Garuda and Dragon and cultivate experience without boundaries. These fruitional dignities refer to 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.


Prerequisites: completion of Sacred Path - Meek and Perky programs.
