Through meditations, live music and dialogues, James guides us home to the wondrous realisation and celebration of our essential nature. No previous knowledge is required, just a willingness to openly and honestly explore our raw, first-hand experience, to courageously question all our beliefs and assumptions, to feel into our human fragility and whatever fears may arise.

“There’s no dogma, no superiority, no guru-ness, no rigid mindset, no rules, just a loving intelligence continually welcoming us back to the home we never left.”
