Loving Ourselves, Loving Others

May 09 - 11 Begins in 2 weeks
with James Baraz & Jane Baraz

When we develop a basic kindness towards ourselves, we not only learn to accept the difficult parts, but in the process embrace our humanity and see more clearly the beauty that's inside of us. We become less preoccupied with being “good enough,” and as we do that, we allow our goodness and true nature to shine through. As we learn to access our own beautiful qualities, we can also more easily recognize them in others. This becomes a gift to every encounter, a healing energy that awakens the goodness in life around us.



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