Asilomar – Renewing Your Spiritual Space! August 15, 2007

“We have come to Asilomar [to spend] this wonderful week together in love for each other and adoration for the God we believe in.”

–Dr. Ernest Holmes–

The annual summer United Centers for Spiritual Living gathering at Asilomar on the Monterey peninsula is a rich experience for the senses. Seeing the ocean in its many moods, the beauty of the woods covering the conference grounds, and the faces of loving friends and colleagues is a visual delight. Hearing the inspiring music, messages, and workshops brings joy and thoughtfulness. Smelling and tasting the marvelous food in the dining hall constitute a celebration, and feeling the sunshine, the fog, and the innumerable hugs is unforgettable.

But there are other experiences to which our physical senses are not privy. There is the sense of acceptance, safety, and support, encouraging many people to find new and greater expressions of their divinity. A sense of belonging washes over new arrivals as they walk into the social hall and realize they have come to a family reunion of sorts. Every participant gains a new sense of self, or perhaps more accurately, a sense of Self, as they hear time and again that they are wonderful, beautiful, perfect expressions of Spirit.

These experiences cannot be captured on a CD, in a photograph, or from a recipe; they are remembered by the heart and can be taken home as the ultimate souvenirs of a spiritual pilgrimage to that sacred space within–and savored again and again.

“Our religion is not something to be lived merely here at Asilomar, as much inspiration as we receive from it, but rather to take that consciousness which we have arrived at here back with us into whatever activities we may be engaged in.”

–Dr. Ernest Holmes–.

A Brief Word from the Dali Lama

Because we all share this planet earth, we have to learn to live in harmony and peace with each other and with nature. That is not just a dream, but a necessity. We are dependent on each other in so many ways that we can no longer live in isolated communities and ignore what is happening outside those communities.
