There's a feeling of longing that clings to the undefined human being. It points backward in time, to a previous state of untroubled innocence and beauty. It's often associated with childhood, and we know we can't go back there, which can color the feeling with sadness. Ultimately, though, it points back to before time began, to the Home we come from before consciousness arises. And, by awakening to our true state of being, we can go back there. Such awakening of the mind is the True Desire underlying all lesser desires.
Join us during TAT's April 2012 weekend intensive. Experience a weekend of open and honest communication, hear stories of seeking and finding, participate in discussion, and make connections with others on the path of self discovery.
The registration deadline for the April intensive is Friday, April 6th.

What is the TAT Foundation?
A group encouraging people to think rather than believe. A group determined to help people find ways and means to answer their deepest philosophical questions. A gathering of folks who are not afraid to be honest with one another. An island of hope and sanity (or at least the hope for sanity!). Last, but not least, TAT is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit educational organization chartered in 1973.
