The Discipline of Mastery
Discipline of Mastery is a journey into the mind of the Ancient Scouts and the internal driving forces that brought them to mastery of all things. As I’ve always said, the Ancient Scout was always practicing his skills. The old saying, “jack of all trades but master of none” didn’t even remotely apply to the Ancient Scouts for they realized that they had to not only master the physical skills and the spiritual skills but also became masters of themselves. With that being stated and having watched Grandfather for over a decade and nearly 60 years of practice on my own, I feel confident that I can bring you deep into the forces that drove the Ancient Ones, which still drive me and will soon drive you.
Grandfather so often said, “Grandson, the only thing that stands between you and mastery is you”. Yet such a simple statement is actually very complex and reaches deep into the abyss of what really drives us, what mistakes we make, what weaknesses we possess, and how we buy into such a vast array of negative self talk and belief. Yes, as Grandfather often said; “belief is the most powerful force on Earth and passion is second but belief without passion is no faith at all” and as we enter this fascinating realm of reeducation and passionate belief, you like the Ancient Scouts will make changes in your life, your habits, your passions, beliefs and Visions to make you reach Mastery of all things more quickly and completely, turning accumulation of knowledge into wisdom.

Volunteers are a vital part of making each class a success. Having graduates of a class available to answer questions and help out in workshops is of tremendous value to current students, and provides a much larger pool of people they can turn to for assistance. As well, volunteers help to prepare and serve meals, head up the student crews and assist Instructors and Interns in lecture and workshop preparation - all of which are essential when it comes to keeping classes running smoothly. And don't forget, whenever you're not needed as a helper, we encourage you to sit in on the lectures and participate in the exercises and workshops. It's a great way to brush up on your skills, or discover what you may have missed the first time around!
