Cosmology of Love

Photo: David Spangler Please join us for a weekend of exploring love as a force and presence in the universe. We will explore the boundary between self and other, enter the flow of divine compassion, and reveal the sacred presence within our loving relationships, all as we seek to deepen our understanding of the ultimate goal: A Cosmology of Love. The weekend will be a combination of interactive presentation and small group work led by the program's presenters. There will be morning dreamsharing, music, and heartful dialogue throughout the weekend, which begins at 7 p.m. Friday and ends at noon on Sunday, at the Abode of the Message in New Lebanon, New York.
