Perky - The Shambhala Sacred Path

January 25-27

The Four Dignities describe how warriors develop insight and strength that enables them to further shed their cocoons and engage fully in the world. Understanding how the dignities unfold can inspire one's journey and enable one to discern, with awareness and delight, one's progress on the path.


Perky focuses on cultivating sharp, vibrant, and uplifted energy through natural discipline. One's inherent inquisitiveness leads to further exploration that overcomes doubt and hesitation.
