Walking in the Lightness of Being                                                                                                                                            

 The advanced teachings of the Lenmurian Mystery School use ancient wisdom to transform our lives and the lives of all. In this year of 2016 we are being challenged on many levels: socially, economically, emotionally and spiritually. This workshop on Sat, Oct 22nd from 9.30 to 18:00 was born out of the need to address these issues that arise from these challenges.
