Location: Sausalito, CA
We are born into relationship with self, others, and community. Relationship initiates us into the great mysteries of life: birth, initiation, marriage, and death. Considered by the spiritual traditions of the world to be the most rigorous spiritual practice, it is within relationship that we continually shed our expectations, assumptions, and illusions of our self and others. Relationship is where the human spirit learns about love, creativity, betrayal, forgiveness, trust, and honesty. It is a crucible that fosters growth, mutuality, reciprocity, and generosity of spirit. To pre-register for this program or for more information, please call Angeles' office at 415-331-5050. Each weekend may be taken individually ($350 each) or the entire series of four weekends $1,000.
