Sacred Path: Outrageous and Inscrutable
with Jeffrey Stevens & Jane Carpenter
April 25 / 7:00 PM - April 27 / 6:00 PM
Outrageous and Inscrutable—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 benefit others on a larger scale.
The Four Dignities are introduced as a path and a process. The Shambhala Dignities describe a warrior's maturing and widening sphere of benevolent engagement in the world. The training of the Sacred Path allows one to maintain awareness, delight, and appreciation at every stage of the journey.
Prerequisites: Completion of Great Eastern Sun, Windhorse, Drala, and Meek and Perky Sacred Path levels.
About the Sacred Path:
The Sacred Path series deepens the warrior's journey by introducing the root Shambhala teachings and their commentaries. The teachings are based on a societal vision and aspiration to bring forth the goodness of human beings as well as the goodness of human society.
During a series of visionary experiences that took place between 1976 and 1980, Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche wrote down the four root Shambhala texts. The Sacred Path is based on these texts. The Sacred Path presents extensive commentaries by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche on how these teachings are relevant in modern times.
