Shambhala Training: Meek
November 14 - 16, 2013
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.
We will be spending a good amount of time outdoors, so please bring warm, waterproof clothing and good waterproof shoes/boots. Qigong (Eva Wong's lineage) will be offered before breakfast each morning for those interested in learning this form. It is optional. We will be doing other body exercises, so please bring loose comfortable clothing for moving around inside.
This program is offered as one continuous retreat, but this is the first part that could be taken separately.
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 November 14 at 7:30pm and concludes on November 16th at 5:00 p.m.
Completion of Shambhala Training: Drala.
