Sunday Sessions with Henry

An invitation to our true home

Sunday Sessions with Henry are a chance to gather in community to investigate our true nature, and settle into the deep rest and peace that it can provide.

Each Sunday is a different and spontaneous exploration of the many topics inherent in Original Love. Henry (and occasional guest teachers) will guide us in meditation and bring a talk that is often infused with poetry, quotes from beloved authors, and poignant stories.

Sunday Sessions end with a Q&A period where students will have the chance to ask questions, and hear answers to the questions that other students have on their minds and hearts.

A tremendous belovedness

This year of Sunday Sessions is an opportunity to gather and be in community – for meditation, for teachings, and for explorations where we continue the work, the journey, the blessed practice of coming home to our real nature – to the original love that’s always here, holding us. 

When we find that, we cannot help but feel a tremendous sense of belovedness, and of lovingness. That’s the key component, the real watchword of this Original Love program: coming back again and again, amidst all the suffering and trouble in our human experience, to the lovingness that is intrinsic to our being. This year, in these Sunday Sessions, that’s what we’re going to be gathering to do, in this beautiful way of experiencing together what it is to find our great home.
