formation

Watchfulness starts with transparency, vulnerability, and obedience (including maintaining accountability and understanding the nature of control) and results in surrender, reward, and wisdom.

The options for specific application of these components range from basic to advanced and are described on this page:

The sources below speak to the general sequence resulting from formation. It is important to note these are not “courses” – there is no syllabus here, but there are resources and guidance. Ultimately, the processes of formation are less about sequence and progress and much more about intention.
