TAT Foundation November Gathering
Drunk in this Tavern

Friday to Sunday
November 18-20, 2016

We find ourselves inebriated in this existence, not knowing how we got here. As Jalal al-Din Rumi (1207-1273) described the situation in "Who Says Words with My Mouth?" (in the translation by Coleman Barks):

Who looks out with my eyes? What is the soul?
I cannot stop asking.
If I could taste one sip of an answer,
I could break out of this prison for drunks.
I didn't come here of my own accord, and I can't leave that way.
Whoever brought me will have to take me back....

Is there help in finding our way Home?

The weekend together creates an atmosphere in which hearts and minds might open wide to a simple answer behind our most profound questions. TAT meetings involve an intimate gathering where seekers as well as finders will join together to help each other, while sharing their stories, their successes, their struggles. TAT aims to foster an environment where bonds of friendship will be formed, and renewed.

Plus, the weekend includes valuable opportunities to go deeper within: group self-inquiry, one-on-one discussion opportunities with teachers and presenters, and group meditation sittings.

The event is being held during November 18-20, 2016, at the Claymont Society Mansion in West Virginia. For details, visit TAT's event web page: Drunk in this Tavern. The registration deadline is Saturday, November 13th.
