Shambhala Sacred Path: Meek with Jim Yensan
May 7–9, 2010
In this program, we will be introduced 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 we train to overcome arrogance—the primary obstacle to learning.
