everyone wants to be happy

We are all born complete, fully aware and equipped with everything we need to live well. Then the mixed messages of culture, family and naivety collude and we veer off path. Everyone in their own way is searching for a way to live in this ever-changing world that that offers a sense of contentment, completion and stability.  And we know from our innate wisdom and the testimonial of many that have come before us that it is possible to be in the world that way. The Urban Monk Project is a map toward that kind of happiness with no single destination prescribed. It describes the spectrum of choices and directions we all navigate between the monastery and wanton curiosity and some measured recommendations for best practices along the way.

an immersive experience in which you are “bathed” in waves of soft tones and gentle rhythms. With crystal singing bowls, gongs, hand drums and subtle drones, this is a rich and deeply therapeutic experience.

remembering our true nature is peace and joy. waking up to an abiding sense of well-being is not a matter of acquiring special skills, becoming religious, accumulating material wealth or getting smarter. these events are relaxed and informal. no prior meditation or retreat experience is required.
