Event description

Description

Join senior Dharma Teachers Peggy Rowe, EdD and Larry Ward, PhD for a weekend long journey into the wisdom and practices of Indra’s Net.

For Centuries and across many cultures this net has symbolized deeper levels of our connectivity to all our relations. Together, we will:

* Explore our relationship to the world through the prism of Race.

* Explore our relationship to ourselves as precious individuals.

* Explore our relationships with those we hold closely in our lives.

* Endeavor to touch and be touched by the ground of well-being.

* Nourish our capacities to go deeper into our own healing, transformation, and ultimately, liberation.
