The Four-fold Way

In The Four-fold Way: Walking the Paths of the Warrior, Teacher, Healer, and Visionary cultural anthropologist, Angeles Arrien, Ph. D., explores four archetypal principles from indigenous cultures:

Show Up
Pay Attention
Tell the Truth
Don’t be Attached to Outcome

They are framed on my den wall.

As I understand,
Show Up: If I’m not here I can’t play.
Pay Attention: If I don’t, show up doesn’t matter.
Tell the Truth: My story may help us better understand life’s struggle and joy.
Don’t be Attached to Outcome: What will be will be.  It’s okay.

These are only my “Truth.”  Read The Four-fold Way, go to, or view Dr. Arrien on You Tube Ted Talks.
