Sacred Path: Meek and Perky
with Mark Blumenfeld
September 13 / 7:00 PM - September 15 / 6:00 PM
Training in the four Dignities of Shambhala allows one to develop insight and strength that enables you to further shed your cocoon and engage fully in the world. Understanding how the dignities unfold can inspire your journey and enable you to maintain awareness and delight at each stage along your the path. The Dignity of 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. The Dignity of 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.
