Join a FREE online video retreat taking place December 3-5th, hosted by some of the most influential thinkers, authors, and wisdom leaders of our time.
Ram Dass always had a knack for heart-to-heart transmission. After returning from India in 1968, he began to travel across the United States lecturing and exploring a new way of being that he learned from his guru, Neem Karoli Baba.
By the end of his life, Ram Dass was a true conduit for unconditional love. He wished for these timeless teachings to find a home in an evolving world, and to serve as a beacon for the wisdom and joy that he came to embody so deeply.
So, as we embark on our first in-person retreat since his passing two years ago, we invite you to help us honor his legacy by coming together to learn, contemplate, expand and practice in community - with the support of a lineup of world-renowned wisdom leaders.
Taking place December 3-5th, we will host a free virtual retreat from Maui: Legacy of Love - Honoring Ram Dass.
The retreat will feature practical guidance along with ancient mystical traditions, poetry, chant, and meditation practice to help us ground ourselves and heal from the uncertainty and turmoil of the past few years.
Featuring three main topics with archival media from Ram Dass:
- Love and Death
- Service and Social Action
We draw from the wellspring of perennial wisdom to restore balance in our own souls and strengthen ourselves to be a source of goodness in the world.
Ram Dass had this extraordinary ability to uncover and translate universal truths from multiple spiritual traditions in such a way that they became the perfect antidote for challenging conditions. In the final years of his life in a body, Ram Dass called upon all of us, his beloved Satsang around the world, to fully step into the life of the heart and be a source of living love in this world.
