Shambhala Training Retreat: The Four Dignities
with Janet Solyntjes
March 28 / 12:00 AM - April 4 / 12:00 AM
The four dignities lay out the stages of the path of warriorship. They are qualities that are innate to our own body, mind, and windhorse. Connecting with the energy and insight of each dignity brings further embodiment and deeper understanding of who we are and how to enjoy and engage the world. This program will combine sitting meditation, windhorse practice, study of a Shambhala treasure text (terma), sensory and outdoor explorations, and spending time with each other as a community of warriors in the world.
This program is offered as one continuous retreat, but there are three parts that could be taken separately. There is a materials fee of $24 for this program.
Meek grounds us in our heart. We train to overcome arrogance and uncover our inherent gentleness and friendliness. We cannot move forward without the energy of brave humbleness. Begins March 28 at 7:30pm and concludes on March 30th at 5:00 p.m.
Perky moves by leaps and bounds. Discipline becomes a natural expression of our inspiration. We are naturally curious to explore and face our doubts and hesitations. The path is delightful. Perky starts on the evening of March 30th at 7:30 p.m. and concludes on April 1st at 5:00 p.m.
Outrageous and Inscrutable
Discovering the outrageous and inscrutable qualities of our heart, we are not afraid to leap into space and to do whatever needs to be done. Our small minded attachment to self-centered agendas dissolve, yet the smallest details of benefit are cultivated. Vastness and precision come together, beyond our hopes and fears. Outrageous and Inscrutable starts on the evening of April 1st and ends on April 4th at 12:30pm.
