The Inward Way is a special Discipline developed by the followers of Tempest of Inward Focus Dharma. It has many similarities to the Equilibrium Discipline.

In line with their belief of oneness with the self in order to achieve the oneness with the Tau, the Discipline of the Inward Way is all about controlling the four imbalanced Virtues at the heart of the constantly whirling tempest within. A true master of the Inward Way manipulates her Yin and Yang Chi as well as her Hun and P'o with equal facility, and is always in complete control of her internal balance.
