The Four Dignities: Meek

Jim Yensan

May 25–27, 2012

Tuition $175 + 2 nights

This program introduces Heart of Warriorship graduates to the “Four Dignities,” which characterize a warrior’s maturing and widening sphere of benevolent engagement in the world, as a path and a process. Training in the dignities allows us to maintain awareness and delight at each stage.

In Meek, we study the grounded, humble and gentle beginning stages of the warrior’s journey. Here one trains to overcome arrogance—the primary obstacle to learning.

Prerequisite: Drala
