Showing the Way

The Path, The Teacher and The Community

Week 3A  August 4th – 10th 2019
Workshop with Atum & Emmanuel O’Kane

At the core of every spiritual tradition is the trinity of the path, the guide, and the community. This programme invites us to look back and honour the role that these three jewels have played in the unfoldment of our lives.

This unfoldment has been greatly shaped by the teachers that have guided us, and enriched by the different communities of people that we have shared it with. Embedded into it is the transformative process of learning how to use the teachings that we have followed to make our own way through the world.

To understand the the path that we have already walked Atum and Emmanuel will work with teachings from Jungian psychology and various spiritual traditions, storytelling, contemplative inquiry, and music. This will not only help us orient to who we long to become, but also give us the courage to be who we really are.

For this program a supplement of CHF 85 or € 75 is to be added to the “base price”
