A Revolution in Consciousness
Crossing the Perception Bridge
Human perceptions have created the wars, pollution, species extinctions, social injustices, and other crises that currently threaten our planet. We are at the frontier of a world-changing revolution—a consciousness revolution. It will redefine relationships between perceived and objective reality and the impact we humans have on both. As a society, we stand on the edge of a world-changing revolution—a consciousness revolution that will redefine relationships between perceived and objective reality. Join New York Times best-selling author John Perkins to discover how we can create “perception bridges” that transform our perceived realities and our current problems, as well as offer pathways to new solutions.
The Soul of Money
Transforming Your Relationship With Money & Life
A dysfunctional relationship with money can hold us back from achieving our highest potential. Come experience a new sense of freedom with Lynne Twist, founder of the Soul of Money Institute, and discover practical tools to transform your relationship with money and life.
Mating in Captivity
Unlocking Erotic Intelligence
Why does great sex so often fade for couples who say they love each other as much as ever? Why does a good intimate connection not guarantee good sex? In a fun, safe environment, learn to rekindle intimacy, curiosity, and sensuality—in and out of the bedroom. Guided by internationally renowned therapist and relationship expert Esther Perel, Unlocking Erotic Intelligence offers a bold new take on intimacy and sex. Couples and individuals of all sexual orientations are welcome.
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. Join Jack Saul, director of the International Trauma Studies Program, and learn to access resources from the four domains of resilience—our storied pasts, our current ecosystem, our collective group capacities, and our imagined futures.
Afro Flow Yoga
Leslie Salmon Jones and Jeff W. Jones
Experience a unique creative fusion of vinyasa and Kundalini yoga with dance movement from the African Diaspora with Leslie Salmon Jones and Jeff W. Jones, creators of Afro Flow Yoga™. Take a transformational journey of heart-opening movement, deep stretches, singing, meditation, relaxation, and reflection—all interwoven with the dynamic rhythmic release of energizing and healing percussion with vocals. Together in a nonjudgmental environment, we celebrate the freedom of movement, connect to the elements of nature, and tap into the power of collective, creative energy with live drumming. No experience necessary; all levels are welcome.
Music & Meditation
In this gathering led by musical visionary Tina Malia, we use the tools of song, japa (mantra repetition), and silence as our guides to the joyous and radiant heart. Together, through chanting and meditation, we develop and practice the remembrance of inner peace.
