We are calling in the creatives, leaders, teachers, innovators and practitioners of the community to gather for a half-day workshop on Saturday, Feb 17th with Thomas Davis IV.

Thomas Davis IV will be guiding us in an exploration of Ethics and their relationship to Authentic Expression and Innovation.

The purpose for the exploration of this subject is to share ways in which we can utilize our Ethical foundations to resource ourselves in the midst of the cataclysmic times we are witnessing and experiencing! We will cover the basic tenets of Buddhist Ethical conduct, as a springboard into some of the more expansive and obscure possibilities of these Virtues.

Collectively we will Co-Create a practice environment so that our Meditation, Listening, Inquiries and Insights may be of benefit for all.

Please consider attending with a friend.
