Program Description

What do we want more than happiness? We all long for it. It’s the core desire underneath all of our searching. The thing we look for, only to realize it can’t be found “out there.”

In this 5-day workshop, former monk Caverly Morgan uses meditation, guided imagery, experiential exercises, journaling, and group discussion to illuminate the happiness that can only come from within.

Founded in the revolutionary understanding that your true nature is wholeness, awareness, and unconditional love, The Bridge to Happiness guides you through a five-step process to:

  • Direct the Attention
  • Recognize the Conditioned Mind
  • Access the Compassionate Mentor Within
  • Move Beyond the Duality of Self and Life
  • Know Yourself as Awareness

Stop striving and searching-discover a contemplative practice to ignite joy and align every aspect of your life with your deepest realization. Come wake up to your true nature and watch your life transform.
