The Great Intimacy

May 06 - 11, 2018 Begins in 1 week
with John Prendergast & Kelly Boys

“What does it mean to be deeply intimate with ourselves and with the whole of life, and to be in true communion?” write the leaders. “What role does our body play in both sensing into and expressing our inherent non-separate nature? In this seminar, we will explore how to tune in to our deeper self through the felt-sense of the body. Our bodies have a natural sense of intimacy and authenticity, particularly as they are freed from the conditioning of our limiting beliefs, reactive feelings, and somatic contractions.



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