Journey to Apotheosis: When Humans Reach Their Highest Potential, They Become Divine

Jul 29 - Aug 26, 2018 Begins in 1 month
with Vipin Thekk with Angie Thurston

This program revolves around exploring human potential — how to reach your own and activate other people in doing the same. This offering is intended for anyone seeking a deeper sense of meaning, purpose, and belonging in their life and those who feel called to activate the potential in others. Our journey will take us through the three faces of Spirit as articulated by philosopher and theoretical psychologist Ken Wilber. This journey deepens our relationships with the spirit in ourselves, others, and in the systems we inhabit.



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


Experience twenty-seven acres of Pacific coastline paradise.

A global network of seekers devoted to the belief that we are all capable of the extraordinary.
