In Tune with the Infinite—In Rhythm with the Finite 

Saturday & Sunday April 16-17 // 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Nalanda Events Center // 6287 Arapahoe Avenue

The inner path opens a way by which the human self may journey, within itself, to reach the Self of all selves. The journey begins in nostalgia, progresses in love, ascends to union, and culminates in luminous paradox. All along the way, the sacred task is service and remembrance.

Through conscious breath, invocation, prayer, and meditation, we will re-center in the heart as a means of knowing, glorifying, and serving the Infinite Life. ')}
