Lower Lights Sangha Monthly Gathering

This month at Lower Lights we’ll work at the skill of tuning the heart-mind to more subtle realities of experience almost the way you would tune a radio to listen to your favorite station. What we find when we take up this practice is a surprising degree of intimacy, of aliveness, of connection that has always been here, lying just beyond the bandwidth of our ordinary consciousness.
