“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, and to understand the effects of one's actions.

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.

Our Teacher:

Ben Hines first encountered Shambhala in 1981 in a series of four talks called “Awakened Heart.” With a lifelong interest in how society works, Ben’s life has been deeply marked by meditation and the Shambhala teachings and by the example of the Sakyongs, each of whom present the highest possibilities of society as a path for the expression of dignity, nobility and sacred outlook.
