2024 Original Love 1 Year Program
January – November, 2024
This year’s program is in service of coming home to who we really are – to the love and well-being, joy and positive energy intrinsic to our original nature. We need it more than ever. And this is how healing can happen, individually, communally, collectively, globally.
One Blade of Grass
One Blade of Grass tells the story of how meditation practice helped Henry Shukman to recover from the depression, anxiety, and chronic eczema he had had since childhood and to integrate a sudden spiritual awakening into his life. By turns humorous and moving, this beautifully written memoir demystifies Zen training, casting its profound insights in simple, lucid language, and takes the reader on a journey of their own, into the hidden treasures of life that contemplative practice can reveal to any of us.
