Reclaiming Your Authentic Self

Jun 10 - 15, 2018 Begins in 1 month
with Anne Watts

Have you ever found yourself thinking you want one thing but doing something else? The thing you’re doing comes from the inner child. What, exactly, is the inner child? It has many names: the authentic self, natural child, creative energy, or inner place of knowing. The inner child works differently in each of us. We are often out of touch with this part of ourselves, yet it is the part that runs our lives.



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