Program Details

Meek and Perky Weekend Retreat


with Christopher St John
October 24 / 7:00 PM - October 26 / 6:00 PM

“The four dignities” are introduced as a path and a 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 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 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.


Prerequisite: Drala.  Friday 7:00 p.m. registration, 7:30 p.m. opening talk. Saturday and Sunday, 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  For more information contact Karen Simpson at ksimpson1953@gmail.com
