Join us for a day with Barbara Alexander and Marilyn Schlitz as we explore the transformative potentials of spiritual practice in our lives. Each will bring their unique perspectives and shared longings for our collective engagement with a specific spiritual theme: Living Deeply: Personal & Collective Transformation. Participate with others at beautiful Anubhuti Retreat Center to share with these inspired teachers and participate in meditation and experiential practice in the morning and afternoon, followed by times for debrief and discussion. Lunch is included, with space for those who prefer silence and those who prefer a time to visit and network with colleagues and friends.
