Fourth Annual Maine Wisdom Ingathering: “Introducing the Imaginal Realm.”

Our theme this year is 2020: HONORING THE YEAR OF PERFECT VISION. The morning teachings will feature a “sneak peek” into my forthcoming (September 2020) book, Eye of the Heart: A Spiritual Journey into the Imaginal World, where we explore some powerful new perspectives for working skillfully in a world apparently hopelessly divided and gridlocked.

This year the logistics for the event will be managed by our dedicated Wisdom duo, Mary Ellen Jernigan and Eileen Clark, two very caring and responsive presences, who have set up a special e-mailbox just for the occasion. They will be happy to work with you on all aspects of logistics, accommodations, and other details. If you would like to talk to Eileen or Mary Ellen by phone, just send a note to with your phone number and the best time for one of them to give you a call.
