Shambhala Training: Meek and Perky
with Esther Rochon
October 18 / 7:00 PM - October 20 / 6:30 PM
This week-end introduces the first two qualities of the Four dignities ( Tiger, Lion, Garuda, Dragon) as a 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: the first dignity connected with the tiger’s qualities, 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: the second dignity connected to the lion’s qualities 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.
