What we're about

There are changes in nature and life on earth. The energy pouring into and out of our planet is different. As Earthlings seeking the Path, we can come together to co-create the marriage of wisdom and compassion, mindfulness and love, spirituality and enlightenment.

Join the movement and our Dharma initiatives: meditation, yoga, mindful living, compassionate eating... Come for a public sitting, sit ins, nature walks, music festivals, and other events throughout Los Angeles.

Our practice sessions are designed to raise the vibration of the planet and earthlings by connecting meditation, music, art, sound healings, binaural beats (Monroe Institute (http://monroeinstitute.org/)), Native American workshops, interactive experiences, exposure to the age-defying Dharmas of the East (Buddhist, Yogic, Vedic, Jain), connecting our Western world with all of humanity through unity, sustainability and environmental awareness.

Other initiatives taking place throughout the year include meditation practice sessions, yoga intensives, Disclosure Project (http://disclosureproject.org) events (Dr. Steven Greer), The Full Disclosure Project (https://www.facebook.com/thefulldisclosureproject/) (Edgar Cayce (http://edgarcayce.org) now reborn (https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/56202/the-reincarnation-of-edgar-cayce-by-wynn-free-and-david-wilcock/9781583940839/) as David Wilcock (https://divinecosmos.com/start-here/books-free-online/22-the-reincarnation-of-edgar-cayce-draft-of-pt-1)), Something's Happening (http://somethingshappening.com/Home.html) and The Aware Show (http://theawareshow.com) (KPFK (http://kpfk.org) 90.7 FM), and Conscious Life Expo (http://www.consciouslifeexpo.com/2018-expo/welcome_4.html).

One hour (6-6:59 PM) self-guided Open-Meditation in the SUNRISE ROOM yoga studio for practitioners to meditate in a tranquil setting. Open to all.
