    The Mystery of Being
    May 15 - 17, 2020
    Within each of our forms lies the existential mystery of being. For all of our anxious busyness and obsession with triviality, we cannot completely deny this essence at our core. Being is the itch that cannot be scratched, the whisper that will not be denied. There is only being living itself through you, as you, and as all that exists. Join spiritual teacher Adyashanti in this exploration of bringing to life the flowering of a living and undivided expression of being.
