East Coast Coming Home to a New Earth: An L/L Research Event

August 8–11, 2024

L/L Research is happy to announce the 2024 East Coast Coming Home to a New Earth Gathering! Celebrating its seventh iteration and L/L’s very first bi-coastal offering, this event has become a container for transformation, awakening, and community of the open heart.

Our focus for this year’s gathering continues to be 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, August 8, at 4:00 PM ET Ends: Sunday, August 11, with an evening dinner

Where

Wallingford, Pennsylvania, at the Quaker-run retreat center, Pendle Hill.

Format

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 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.

Schedule

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 7:00pm’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 2023 Coming Home curriculum with changes to start and meal times.

Cost

The total cost includes your tuition and what the venue charges us for event space, lodging for 4 days/4 nights, and eleven nutrition-packed super delicious meals: dinner Thursday; breakfast, lunch, and dinner Friday–Sunday; and breakfast Monday morning.
