See all our workshops and classes in the coming months at our Education page.

New Home Community Meeting

By Events, NewsNo Comments

After the Celebration Service on Sunday, January 10th, we hosted a New Home Community Meeting to communicate the latest information and updates in regard to our upcoming move, as well as hear input from the community. Below is a message from our architect, Elva Rubio of Rubio Studios, shared with those in attendance. Plus, we’ve included the agenda and notes for download and the slide show presented. Thanks to all who joined us, and for everyone’s continued support as we transition to a new home!

What Is Important To Move Forward

A Message from architect Elva Rubio

This home has served you well in the last 4 years. It has allowed you to create a sense of home, permanency, belonging and contributing to a neighborhood and community. You have also experienced the opportunity to grow, expand and mature.

With gratitude for this place, it is important to take your values, characteristics, visions & aspirations, all that you share, and let the new location unfold. Your new home will reveal profound opportunities and relationships, truly based in your community core and dreams. You have been and will continue to be on a journey of creating a new genre of “Center” which will hold unlimited relationships and possibilities. There is not currently, close example of an organization that compares to the potential of Bodhi. The offerings for our radically changing urban communities are endless. As you innovate and evolve, keep moving ahead “unified” as you do so well with open minds and hearts “And So It Is.”

I have been so honored to be part of your New Home Search and the future of Bodhi. I have been enriched and have learned so much.

The #DriveTo75

By Blogs, Events, News5 Comments

I LOVE POTENTIAL! You must first know that about me. I love celebrating what is and then creating what can be. I love witnessing the wake up of someone to their magnificence. I love witnessing someone’s discovery of their unique purpose on this planet. I love witnessing the stretch of what’s possible. #Driveto75 is exactly that. It’s a conversation that started at Bodhi last Sunday. #Driveto75 is a special intention to kick off a response to a financial gap we are currently experiencing. Read More
