The Power of Grace: Recognizing Unexpected Gifts on the Path

Jun 19 - 21, 2015 Begins in 3 weeks
with David Richo

If we think back over the relationships and milestones of our lives, we notice that often something wonderfully helpful or surprisingly beneficial happened without our choice, effort, plan, or expectation. We met just the right person or found the relationship that helped us grow in important ways at just the right time. That special assistance, unearned, unforeseen, unplanned, and often unnoticed, is a description of grace — the gift dimension of life.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.
