The Art & Practice of Creating A More Beautiful Mind

4pm Friday (check in) to 1pm Sunday (following lunch)

Join us for our annual weekend at Asilomar, California. This year, we’ll be returning to the beautiful atmosphere and natural light of the Chapel, limiting attendance to 200. As in many previous years, we’ll be joined by musical legends Owen and Micheal O’Suilleabhain, and if the stars align just right, Charlotte Whyte may also make an appearance.

The theme of the weekend will be an exploration of the imagination as a faculty of perception - not as the ability to think up new things, but as a central integrative intelligence able to discern the complex patterns that surround human beings. This faculty relies less on engaging the will and more on a way of being in the world, drawing upon a rested, alert intelligence with the courage to simplify, to act, and to have a life worth living at the center of our endeavors.
