Finding Heart’s True Home, with David Parks and Tammy Kaousias

February 16, 2019
Lotus Light Center
Knoxville, TN

Valentine’s Day is a day given to love. A time of candy and cards, hearts and flowers, most often we see the day as one for expressing our love outward. What if we turned it around and shone love’s light inward, towards ourselves? Our hearts just might open. And when heart opens, it opens in all directions, embracing our whole life.

The Great Way: Un-Knowing Difficulty, A Suburban Retreat with Jon Joseph

March 15-17, 2019
Mercy Center
Burlingame, CA

Throughout the whole of our lives, by one path or another, with all our heart, we are seeking the Great Way. We strive and search, and search and strive. But our old-friend Chao Chou is telling us that in all the universe, there is not the least bit of struggle. That this world is whole and complete, just as it is.

The Dragon of Requirement – An Open Mind Retreat with John Tarrant

March 21-24
Commonweal Center
Bolinas, CA

Often we don’t know what we really want and require and truly care about. We chase outcomes when the change we need is inside. The dragon is the surprising discovery of the genuineness of our journey and of what we really love and also the unforeseen help that will appear as these things become clear.
