bargaining, no deals, no minor contracts, or secret agreements. Just you and your heart's desire. "I would love to kiss you. The price of kissing is your life. Now, my loving is running toward my life shouting: What a bargain! Let’s buy it" (Rumi) We will discuss the Path, everyday issues, and their Divine solutions. When: Saturday, April 8th from 11:00 am to 9:30 pm. Where: 159 Tamarack Road in San Geronimo Donation: $85.00 donation with lunch and dinner included.
