Summer Bliss Retreat

The Path to Universalism
Neo-humanism: Philosophy – Practice – Purpose
June 25 to 30, 2019
We all thirst for the opportunity to express our full potential. The earth is our home. At a time of critical planetary changes we urgently need a global system that supports and nourishes us on our collective human journey. The philosophy of Neo-humanism was created by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti in the early 1980’s. It describes a practical way to transform ourselves and our society that will enable us to embrace a sentiment of universal love or Universalism .
A dynamic team of presenters will host an interactive program. Themes will include:
• Neo-Humanist Education: Expanding the Heart, Freeing the Mind, Engaging in Society – Moving Together.
• Neo-Humanist Jeopardy Game.
• Sharing Joy in Nature: the subtle experience of a guided Silent Nature Walk.
• Neo-Humanists in action: meet those in the field.
• Connecting with a global community that is working towards Universalism
Soon we will post a link to the complete day by day program that also includes unique spaces for newcomers, teens, and children.
