Like the pit of the peach that hides the secret of new life. Or the quiet mystery in eye of the storm.  The beauty and redemption of the pearl made from sand in the belly of the oyster.  Or the luscious delight of the chewy center of a Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop... we set our sights on the Heart's Center.


What do we find when, after decades of searching, or in a flash of unbidden grace, falling through a trapdoor or whirling like a Sufi dervish, floating on the breath of a beloved in the moment of ecstatic bliss or dancing in the refracting dust of a Playa sunrise, we crack open to the infinite possibilities of all that could be?  We emerge in the Center of the Heart.


Like climbing the pyramid on the back of a dollar bill, whatever path we take we all end up in the same place. We transcend the Jungles of Time and Space - leaving behind the divide of us and them, right and wrong, black and white, now and then, here and there, he and she, you and me - and immerse ourselves in the pulsating hum of the eternal rhythm of life’s own hymn to itself.


Join us as, together, we Journey to the Center of the Heart. Will we arrive? How will we know? No one can say, for our route is not marked on any map... but we have heard the lips of fools whisper that we are sure to find an epic celebration once we have entered the gate.


Behold, the Journey to the Center of the Heart!


Emergence 2023, Journey to the Center of the Heart, will take place April 20-24, 2023 at The Woodlands, just outside

Charleston, South Carolina.
