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

June 27–30, 2024

L/L Research is happy to announce the 2024 West Coast Coming Home to a New Earth Gathering! Celebrating its sixth 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, June 27, at 5:00 PM PT Ends: Sunday, June 30, with an evening dinner

Where

North Bend, Washington (a little less than an hour east of Seattle) at non-profit retreat space, Rainbow Lodge Retreat Center. Just look at the pictures!

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 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 2023 Coming Home curriculum.

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.

If you would love to attend but would be prohibited by financial limitation, we have 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 Monday, May 27th. After that it will be a 50% refund and the remainder will be allocated to the scholarship fund.
