Second Reading
The Second Reading is taken from “The Four-Fold Way” by Angeles Arrien, Ph.D.,
entitled,
Living The Four-Fold Way
…all Shamanic traditions draw on the power of four archetypes in order to live in harmony and
balance with our environment and with our own inner nature: the Warrior, the Healer, the
Visionary, and the Teacher. When we learn to live these archetypes within ourselves, we will
begin to heal ourselves and our fragmented world.
The following four principles, each based on an archetype, comprise what I call the Four-Fold
Way:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Show up, or choose to be present. Being present allows us to access the human
resources of power, presence, and communication. This is the way of the Warrior.
Pay attention to what has heart and meaning. Paying attention opens us to the human
resources of love, gratitude, acknowledgement, and validation. This is the way of the
Healer.
Tell the truth without blame or judgment. Nonjudgmental truthfulness maintains our
authenticity, and develops our inner vision and intuition. This is the way of the
Visionary.
Be open to outcome, not attached to outcome. Openness and nonattachment helps us
recover the human resources of wisdom and objectivity. This is the way of the
Teacher.
When we understand these universal experiences, we are better able to respect the diverse ways
in which these shared themes are expressed by all people.
Let the Redeemed of the Lord Say So
Congregation Response: AMEN!

(Praise)
May we always remember those who have gone before us;
May we be inspired by their vision and valor;
May their lives continuously remind us
That Service is More Important Than Success;
That People Are More Important Than Possessions;
That Principle Is More Important Than Power.
May whatever we do be shaped and molded by honesty, competence and
commitment.
May our children and our children’s children carry forth with pride, the
nobility of our history and tradition.
To the Creator of all of us, we dedicate our lives to make this world better
and more beautiful.
