The Dream Circle
Every Wednesday
12:30 - 1:30 p.m. CT

Our dreams speak to us in symbolic language, and the interpretation of these symbols allows us to access the knowledge of the Spirit (Self) that uses our dreams to communicate messages to us subconsciously. Sharing our dreams in a group setting can help us recognize and interpret what our subconscious is telling us.

Combined Teachings on the Nyenpo Sum (Vajrapani/ Hayagriva/ Gardua) with Lojong, Bodhisattva Mind Training
Friday, March 16 - Sunday, March 18

The term Lojong literally means "Mind Transformation," but refers to specific methods for cultivating wisdom and compassion on a daily basis, and bringing them to full fruition. We will learn more about the methods of Lojong and have time for practice over the course of the retreat, including an initiation known as The Three Wrathfuls: Vajrapani, Hayagriva and Garuda.

Searing Love: Return of Sophia and the Divine Feminine
Saturday, April 14, 10:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

The hallmark of the Second Axial Age-a time of religious and spiritual transformation that dares to put an end to competing religions-is the return of the Divine Feminine. The Mother is a fierce lover whose passion burns away the falsehood of separate self and brand name ideologies to reveal an ecstatic unity at home with both the erotic and the ascetic. Rabbi Rami will help us explore the Judeo/Christian teachings of Lady Wisdom and invite us to engage in practices that can awaken us to Her presence within and without.

with Rabbi Rami Shapiro
