5/23: Registration is now closed. Event is around the corner!
L/L Research and The Asheville Law of One Study Group are happy to announce the 2019 Coming Home to a New Earth Gathering!
In a survey issued to The Gatherings Newsletter last year, you voted strongly in favor of an adding a day and increasing the size of the circle, so we are happy to experiment by extending the event to three instead of two days, and by expanding the circle to a total of 55 people.
As before, our focus for the gathering will be upon consciously shifting into fourth density through sharing practices, discussions, and connections with each other for the development of mind, body, and spirit. Earth is transitioning. Our society is transitioning. And many recognize they are here on Earth precisely for the purpose of assisting and facilitating this transition. Through this workshop we hope simply to help further awaken and quietly strengthen this incarnational service.
Begins: Thursday, May 30, at 5:00 PM EST
Ends: Sunday, June 2, with an evening dinner
Flat Rock, North Carolina (about 30 minutes southeast of Asheville) at the gorgeous "Sanctuary in the Pines" at Highland Lake Cove retreat center.
This retreat will employ Open Space Technology (OST), which is an approach to event organization where participants co-create the content, the value, the culture, and the leadership that maximizes potential for positive experience. In an Open Space gathering, the agenda is not predetermined. Karin, BJ, and Aaron from the Asheville Law of One study group will introduce OST and how it works, facilitating the group in co-creating our shared schedule.
If you have attended an L/L Research Homecoming Gathering, this is not like that. The energies will be Homecoming-esque, but the event will not be similarly structured with pre-scheduled presentations. If you have not experienced Open Space before, please watch this excellent 7-minute overview.
Volunteering an offering is not mandatory, but if you should feel so moved (we hope you are!), please come prepared with something you would like to share with the group, whether a presentation, an activity, a discussion topic, or anything that may engage others in questions, explorations, and sharings in the spirit of transitioning to fourth density.
1) Several whole-group events will also be built into the schedule:
- Thur: Round Robin & Opening Ceremony at 5:00pm in the Sanctuary.
- Fri & Sat: TBD
- Sun: Closing Ceremony in the Sanctuary at 4:00pm’ish
2) Meal times:
- Breakfast: 8:00am
- Lunch: 1:00pm
- Dinner: 6:00pm
Here is what the schedule of contributions looked like last year. Each attendee is free to choose which offering they would like to attend in a given time slot, including all of them and none of them.
The cost, $266 per person, includes your registration for the three-day workshop along with ten gorgeous meals: dinner Thursday; breakfast, lunch, and dinner Friday – Sunday.
