So, let’s find out what’s really true." -- Be among the first to experience a pre-edition of Pamela Wilson’s forthcoming book – A Golden Retriever’s Guide to Joy: Helpful Hints for Humans, a text celebrating the clear seeing, balance and kindness of the natural world.

  • Francis Lucille ~ Joy Without Cause


    *WORLDWIDE WEB EVENT* Francis, a long time friend and student of Jean Klein, is a spiritual teacher of the Advaita Vedanta tradition. His teaching is not "Neo Advaita" but traditional Advaita, which means that the experience of our true nature has been transmitted from generation to generation by a lineage of sages. Francis' master, Jean Klein, met his guru in India in the early Fifties and stayed and studied with him for several years. He later studied the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism with Dibianandapuri and of Hatha Yoga with the famous teacher Krishnamacharya.

  • Nondual Wisdom and Psychotherapy Conference ~ Spirituality, Narcissism, and the Wound of Unworthiness


    Open Circle is happy to be a co-sponsor of the annual Nondaul Wisdom and Psychotherapy Conference, featuring keynote speaker Adyashanti, and pre-conference workshops with Loch Kelly and Richard Miller. Join spiritual teachers, therapists, and practitioners in an exploration of the feeling of unworthiness so prevalent in today's culture. Look at the harmful ways we attempt to compensate for this feeling by trying to perform and present a sanitized "good self" to the world. See how this carries over into spiritual life in the form of a "spiritual ego", and how this negatively impacts both individuals and communities. Finally, discover how we can heal ourselves by uncovering a deeper sense of value—one that is inherent, unconditional, and always available to us at the core of our Being. ----- FEB 23 – 26 ----- CIIS Main Building, 1453 Mission Street, San Francisco, ----- Open Circle members use code NDW2017 for 10% off full conference registration.
