I had a wonderful time presenting Writing To Awaken at the SAND Conference at Titignano Castle near Orvieto in Italy in July. What a location! Zaya and Maurizio Benazzo, the founders of SAND, are excellent hosts and always produce a mind-bending event, where scientists join with spiritual and self-development teachers to create visionary programs. Where else can you learn from an quantum physicist in the morning and a non-dual master in the afternoon? Check out the next conference this October in San Jose.
