What do we want more than happiness? We all long for it. It’s the core desire underneath all of our searching.

Likely you realize it can't be found externally. You may have tried to find it through forms of self-help. You've read inspiring books by great teachers. You've resonated with their wisdom. And yet you struggle to live by these truths in your daily life.

The Bridge to Happiness program supports us in living from truth. It's an accessible and informative course that integrates the world's greatest wisdom teachings. It shows you how to align your life with your deepest understanding. It explores on what tends to get in the way personally, as well as collectively.

The Bridge to Happiness is founded in the revolutionary understanding that your true nature is wholeness, awareness, and unconditional love. When we wake up to our true nature, our lives transform. Then contemplative practice is no longer founded on striving and searching, rather the alignment of all aspects of your life with your realization.

The Bridge to Happiness program involves a five-step process:

  1. Directing the Attention

  2. Recognizing the Conditioned Mind

  3. Accessing the Compassionate Mentor Within

  4. Moving Beyond the Duality of Self and Life

  5. Knowing Oneself as Awareness

Learn how to integrate the truths of the great wisdom traditions into your daily life. Learn a fresh and accessible approach to contemplative practice that covers both foundational and advanced practices. Leave with tools, structures, and supports to integrate your learnings into daily life after the retreat. Learn how to direct the attention, recognize processes of the conditioned mind such as self-talk, and explore a unique approach to self-compassion. Learn how to rest the attention at its source, and know oneself as awareness through:

  • Meditation

  • Guided imagery

  • Experiential exercises

  • Facilitated group discussion

  • Dyad work

  • Small group work

  • Journaling

Join us as we learn to live from authenticity and truth in daily life. Join us as we ground the depth of contemplative teachings in our everyday world.
