Sacred Path: Outrageous & Inscrutable

with Will Ryken
February 29 / 8:15 AM - March 1 / 5:00 PM

The "four dignities" of meek, perky, outrageous, and inscrutable 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.

The dignities of outrageous and inscrutable describe how the warrior's skill develops as the cocoon completely falls away. No longer afraid of making mistakes, the unconventional and visionary perspective of outrageous (the garuda) combines with the skill of spontaneous inscrutability (the dragon) to create benefit for others on a large scale.
