The Three Lords of Materialism

With Acharya Melissa Moore

April 17 - 21, 2020

When the world has become materialistic, how do we continue to value ‘just being’ and not turn our lives into mindless material, psychological and spiritual consumption?  This four-day program experientially explores our relationship to consumption, to ideas of self-improvement, to theism and non-theism, and toward discerning value in a world that continually objectifies and commodifies experience. Through meditation and contemplative exploration we will discern our personal values and how these values map on to rituals in our daily lives.
