L/L Research and the Temple of the Open Heart (an organizational entity formed from the Asheville Law of One Study Group) are happy to announce the 2022 Coming Home to a New Earth Gathering! Celebrating its fourth iteration and its first post-pandemic return, this event has become a container for transformation, awakening, and community of the open heart.
Our focus for this year’s gathering is on actively cooperating with and supporting the increasing 4D-positive energies in a more dedicated fashion, both individually and collectively. How can we embody unconditional love? How can we serve the healing of our planet and its peoples? How can we discover and share our particular gifts? What would it mean to deepen our commitment to fulfilling our individually unique paths? etc.
Please note: We hold this gathering in a cultural environment where even the Law of One readership is divided, sometimes passionately so, on hot-button political and social issues. The event’s container is designed to focus on the eternal principles of spiritual evolution to which Confederation sources have been directing our attention for many years, rather than to promote or serve as a platform for any particular one side of an issue. We ask that all offerings be geared not toward us-vs-them thinking or conflict-based agenda-making—whatever the merits of any position may be—but toward understanding, compassion, and healing.
Within this safe, stable, and sturdy container, the possibilities for opening our hearts together in the search for illumination and communion are limitless.
Begins: Thursday, September 8, at 5:00 PM EST
Ends: Sunday, September 11, with an evening dinner.
Black Mountain, North Carolina (about 20 minutes east of Asheville) at the gorgeous and open-spirited, inclusive-minded Christmount conference and retreat center.
This retreat will employ Open Space Technology (OST), which is an approach to event organization where participants co-create the content, the value, the culture, and the leadership that maximizes potential for positive experience. In an Open Space gathering, the agenda is not predetermined (though in our case, we will have several pre-planned experiences on the schedule). On the first evening of the event, we will introduce OST and how it works, facilitating the group in co-creating the agenda that will make up the bulk of the sessions or content for the weekend.
And, if you should feel so moved (we hope you are!), please come prepared with something you would like to share with the group, whether a presentation, an activity, a discussion topic, or anything that may engage others in questions, explorations, and sharings in the spirit of the open heart.
Several whole-group events will be built into the schedule:
- Thursday: Opening ceremonies, round robin, and authentic-relating games
- Friday and Saturday: TBD
- Sunday: Closing Ceremony around 6:00pm’ish
The schedule for Friday–Sunday will otherwise be determined by the group itself each day’s morning. The basic structure will look much like the 2019 Coming Home curriculum.
The cost, $366 per person, includes your registration for the 4-day workshop along with ten nutrition-packed super delicious meals: dinner Thursday; breakfast, lunch, and dinner Friday–Sunday.
If you would love to attend but would be prohibited by financial limitation, we have some scholarships available. Please contact us to ask.
And if you are interested in contributing toward scholarships (very helpful that), we have a scholarship fund for helping others.
If you should need to cancel, no worries, we can issue a full refund up to Aug 8. After that it will be a 50% refund and the remainder will be allocated to the scholarship fund.
The venue will cater all meals. They can fully accommodate vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free dietary needs. You will be able to indicate your dietary needs when using the store to register.
Christmount should be able to accommodate everyone onsite through a combination of rooms and tenting options. This includes:
- 25 updated, motel-style rooms: single kings, single queens w/sleeper sofa, and double queens—all with a private bathrooms—along with several handicap accessible rooms.

- RV sites with water/electricity hookups and the same bathhouse access
