WHAT’S NEW? LAST CALL for the Forgiveness Adventure!
One of the current participants in the forgiveness program made an interesting comment to me this week. She said even if folks don’t have anything major to forgive – they should still take the course.
When I asked her why – she said that the skills she’s learning – just in the first week alone will help bring her inner peace and the ability to better deal with the chaos of life. She also shared that the awareness’ that she’s gaining will be helpful in all directions of her life.
Another participant just shared: “Sheri – I am loving these videos! You have done a fantastic job clearly explaining each concept. The way you speak in a slow and animated tone makes it so easy to digest. I love that I can print the lesson and follow along with you, as well as study it afterwards. I’m so glad I signed up for this course and I’m grateful to you for putting together such a wonderful instrument to help me with my growth.“
If you’re sitting on the fence – please jump off and join us! You’ll learn a lot and we’ll have a wonderful time together learning new skills and ways to be a better person in the world. Don’t miss this once-a-year opportunity to share this very special journey with me! And at $395 for the 9-week program – it’s a bargain.

A Magical Moment in Dharamsala with the Dalai Lama!
A magical event happened the last time I (Lisa Tully) facilitated a tour in India that I’d like to share with you. For those of you that haven’t been yet – when you travel to this sacred land something karmically begins to happen the moment you arrive!
An intense clearing out begins resulting in one’s stuff coming to the surface so it can be blissfully released. In other words it’s a bit like having your finger on the fast forward button of spiritual growth.
Leading groups in this kind of powerful energy often results in super fast growth and clearing for the group leader (me!) especially since I hold the space for the entire group. It can be quite intense as each moment carries with it yet another karmic lesson.
As I was experiencing this phenomenon in full force I kept finding banners with the following poem written by the Dalai Lama everywhere which I had never noticed before. To the extent that even when I chose a place to sit in a restaurant I found it scribbled on the wall beside me in pen!
NEVER GIVE UP
No matter what is going on
Never give up
Develop the heart
Too much energy in your country
Is spent developing the mind
Instead of the heart
Not just to your friends
But to everyone
Work for peace
In your heart and in the world
Work for peace
And I say again
Never give up
No matter what is going on around you
Never give up
~ the Dalai Lama XIV
I felt as though the Dalai Lama was urging me on with these words. Then after my group left – I attended one of his public teachings with some of my monastic friends.
As the Dalai Lama walked past us in the crowd he stopped in his tracks, turned around, and looked straight at me – holding my gaze for a few moments before he nodded and moved on! As the people around me gasped in surprise, I knew in that instant he was telling me in person to never-give-up.
So it is with this encouragement from the great man himself that I steam ahead with my tours to Dharamsala, India to see the The Dalai Lama. With the seal of his loving gaze I know ever more strongly that we can make a difference, and we are making a difference to each and everyone who graces our tours with their sacred presence – as well as the Tibetan community in exile.
And for those of you currently facing challenging times and searching for strength – I hope you too find comfort in the words of this powerful poem just as I did.
All my love, Lisa Tully
Feeling miffed at corporate life and all its samsara trappings Lisa handed in her notice. Money was tight, people were pessimistic but her heart was smiling. For she had a deep calling to go to India and now she was finally free to follow it. Originally she was meant to go with friends but as many group emails went by, the thoughts of sipping cool drinks on a beach in a posh resort just didn’t cut it as a dream trip to India.
She decided to go solo instead of in group, north instead of south, and Tibetan instead of Indian. A public teaching by His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama became the entire basis for the trip and for the creation of her own custom tours to India which is the love of her life right now.
Registration is NOW for Lisa’s: “The Dalai Lama & Tibetan Buddhism in Exile” journey this May 30-June 17th, 2013!
