Workshop Information

Workshops are participatory, providing experiences of spiritual community and shared spiritual practice. The goals of this mystical education are self-awareness and self-empowerment to live a more authentic and spirit-filled life, to experience the essential divine nature in all things, and to reawaken the mystery, awe, creativity and energy of the Universe.

Study of each wisdom tradition is grounded in the Interfaith context of reverence for all religious traditions, believing that in this day and age each tradition has something precious and essential to offer us.

Workshops can be presented by health centers, temples, churches, agencies, spiritual groups, or simply by a group of friends or colleagues who want to share a meaningful spiritual learning experience. Programs are fine-tuned and co-created to fit the needs and goals of participants, and the time available: from one to six hours, or a whole weekend.
