Return to Joy with Andrew Harvey
Thursday, September 21, 7:00 p.m.
Internationally-acclaimed spiritual teacher Andrew Harvey will present his newest book Return to Joy, a compelling invitation to consider that joy is the ultimate nature of reality and that its absence lies at the root of our current, unprecedented global crisis. Learn about the mystical wisdom of the ages that places joy at the core of our existence, and consider the myriad enemies of joy in our time. As we tend the fires of joy, we celebrate its flames and nurture its ubiquitous presence.

Sacred Practices to Give Joy in a Time of Crisis
Saturday, September 23, 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Many of us who are committed to birthing a new, more enlightened era are dismayed by the sheer number of crises we now face. It’s all too easy to get stuck in grief and despair or to become detached and disengaged. Instead of succumbing to debilitating emotions, there’s another pathway, one that is both joyful AND effective: viewing the current crisis as an opportunity to deepen our spiritual growth and engage in positive actions that can make a real difference for humanity.
By awakening the “soul force” within us, we can turn our upset into creativity, despair into discipline, and hopelessness into fierce resolve to create a better world for generations to come.
