Sample from any or all of the following workshops during Week 4.
Love, Sex & Awakening
How can we expand the range of experiences in our love life? How can we relate and connect meditation to love making? Based on Margot Anand's latest book, this workshop helps us explore the adventures and experiences of our lives that have been the most meaningful for us. We share, meditate, dance, explore tantric practices, and discover the connections between sexuality and blissful states of consciousness. She will bring advanced pre-publication copies of her new book for participants.
Unlocking Erotic Intelligence
Why does great sex so often fade for couples who claim to love each other as much as ever? Why does a good intimate connection not guarantee good sex? Guided by internationally renowned therapist and author Esther Perel, Unlocking Erotic Intelligence advances a bold new take on intimacy and sex. In a fun and safe environment, learn to release erotic blocks, become more open with your partner about your needs, and cultivate novelty, playfulness, and mystery—in and out of the bedroom. Rekindle intimacy, curiosity, and sensuality in your relationship. Couples and individuals of all sexual orientations are welcome.
The Beautiful Mysterium
Join British Philosopher Neil Kramer as you dive into the magic and mystery of Western esotericism and take an inner spiritual adventure. Uncover the beauty and divinity of the hidden wisdom firsthand and explore pathways of graceful illumination.
Discovering & Sustaining Your Passion for Life
What inspires or inhibits passion in your life? What saps it? How do you lose passion and how do you get it back? Learn to cultivate not just a specific passion, but ways to cultivate passion as a mindset or stance that helps bring vitality into everything you do—from work to relationships to creative pursuits—so you can live a truly inspired spiritual life.

Bouncing Back & Bouncing Forward
Transforming Crisis Into Growth
Jack Saul, PhD
Resilience is our capacity to bounce back from challenges and adversity, and to bounce forward to new stages of growth and self-transformation. Learn to map and access resources from the four domains of resilience, our storied pasts, our current ecosystem, our collective group capacities, and our imagined futures. We explore these realms using experiential and artistic modalities.

Cultivate Your Life Force
Waterfall Qigong Style
Steven Michael Pague
Delve into the mysteries of qigong through a blend of easy-to-learn, yet profound movements designed to increase vitality, strengthen immune function, enhance creativity, and achieve harmony and balance, and much more. Join in and kindle the fire of your inner smile, align yourself between heaven and earth and find the extraordinary in the ordinary.
