The Great Philosophers: Albert Camus

 — (PDT, UTC-07) — (PDT, UTC-07)

San Diego Oasis at Rancho Bernardo, 17170 Bernardo Center Dr., Rancho Bernardo, CA 92128

Algerian-born philosopher Albert Camus (1913-1960) firmly rejected the label “existentialist” his whole life. Nevertheless, his work stands as its most heartfelt expression. Through the rubble of the Russian revolution, WWII, the Holocaust, and the nuclear bomb, Camus helps us chart a course toward a life of meaning and value. Life, Camus argues, is fundamentally absurd, and we will not find any meaning or purpose in it, other than that which we impose upon it ourselves. Join us for a study of Camus’s bracing but ultimately inspiring work.


Walking the Seven Stone Path--A Retreat

 — (PDT, UTC-07) — (PDT, UTC-07)

Camp de Benneville Pines, 41750 Jenks Lake Road, West Angelus Oaks, CA 92305-9789

Join us for this four-day retreat at Camp de Benneville Pines, centered around a study of my book "The Seven Stone Path: An Everyday Journey to Wisdom." Drive up to this beautiful cluster of cabins high in the San Bernardino National Forest to refresh your heart, mind, and body with restful fellowship, meaningful dialogue, great food, and as much camaraderie or solitude your soul requires. For details about the camp, the reservations and accommodations process at their website, or call (909) 794-2928 to have all of your questions answered. This retreat will feature a number of opportunites for growth and connection, and as the keynote facilitator I'll be leading a series of sessions on my book. We'll spend an hour each mid-morning working on the ideas in the book, and we'll gather on the deck every afternoon for open dialogue about the ways these ideas are moving through us. Accommodations are rustic but comfortable. Hope to see you there! We'll arrive on Thursday afternoon, and drive home on Monday morning after breakfast. Don't wait--make your reservations now!
