Liberating Your Essential Self: The Alchemy of Love and Aliveness

May 15 - 20, 2016 Begins in 1 week
with Karishma Darby

There is a deep desire in all of us to know ourselves, to live and love from our most essential nature. For most of us, painful and frightening experiences have caused us to withdraw from living fully. We can feel undernourished, disconnected from our lives and from those closest to us. We want to experience our full aliveness, but we have become too anxious, depressed, or numb. This yearning to love, to experience more freedom and joy, is an invitation to slow down and discover your true self, your essential nature.



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