Session 1 | Opening Panel with Ram Dass with Raghu Markus, Anne Lamott, Dr. Robert Thurman, and Krishna Das

“Emptiness is not nothingness, definitely not. Emptiness is the opposite of nothingness; emptiness is everythingness. Emptiness becomes a nurturing membrane, like a womb, and what it nurtures is the compassionate sensitivity of the sentient being.” - Dr. Robert Thurman

In this opening panel from May 1st, 2019 of the Spring on Maui: Wisdom of Emptiness Retreat, Ram Dass and Raghu Markus are joined on stage by Anne Lamott, Dr. Robert Thurman, and Krishna Das to discuss the topic of emptiness. Through the varying, yet complimentary lenses of Tibetan Buddhism, Bhakti Yoga, and Christianity; the retreat presenters express their wise, nuanced, vulnerable, and humorous takes on the compassion, service, interconnectedness, and loving awareness instilled within the wisdom of emptiness.

Session 2 | The Love That Lives Within Us: Devotion, Compassion, & Emptiness with Dr. Robert Thurman & Krishna Das

“Love, here, is defined as the wish for the happiness of the Beloved. Love is not just lust or wish to possess. That’s a kind of eros or appetite. True love–because it so much appreciates, so much adores, is so devoted to, and so emphasises and identifies with the Beloved–it’s main drive is for the Beloved to be happy.” - Dr. Robert Thurman

In this day two opening session from May 2nd, 2019 of the Spring on Maui: Wisdom of Emptiness Retreat, Tibetan Buddhist scholar, Dr. Robert Thurman, and kirtan wallah, Krishna Das, join forces to illuminate the deep devotion, unbridled compassion, and radiant emptiness of the love that lives within us. Interpreting emptiness through the lens of the ancient Buddha, as well as contemporary Indian Guru, Neem Karoli Baba; Dr. Thurman and Krishna Das weave together love and emptiness through conversation and meditation, while offering a mathematical formula for ‘why the good guys win.’

Session 3 | Trust, Unconditional Love, & the Guru with Ram Dass, Rameshwar Das, & Raghu Markus

“That feeling of home is in all of us. It’s our spiritual heart; it’s not a physical place. So, I think that trust is very much about finding it within ourselves.” - Rameshwar Das

What is trust, and why is it such a potent catalyst for transformation? Speaking to the power of trust and it’s potential to bring us home, Raghu opens day two’s second session from the 2019 Spring on Maui: Wisdom of Emptiness Retreat by inviting Ram Dass and Rameshwar Das to reflect on passages from their book, Be Love Now. Answering questions through the lens of devotion, unconditional love, and the Guru, they share personal stories of psychedelics, India, and Maharajji, exemplifying the transformative power of authentic trust.

Session 4 | Hope & Emptiness: Cultivating Radical Self Love with Anne Lamott

“Mostly what I want out of this life is to feel more comfortable, and for any pain or discomfort to stop. Whereas, the pain and discomfort, the excruciating losses that I’ve had–and that each of you have had at a certain age–have been where I found my way home, where I found my way into truth, into the hardest thing of all: radical self love.” - Anne Lamott

How can we be honest enough with our anger, pain, grief, addictions, and shortcomings to truly hold ourselves in the unconditional truth of our being? Author, Anne Lamott, in the third session from day two of the 2019 Spring on Maui: Wisdom of Emptiness Retreat, offers–through her unbridled vulnerability–an authentic guidebook for cultivating faith, mercy, and radical self love. Punctuated by her trademark raw honesty and witty humor, Anne shares prayerful readings and answers questions illuminating the connection between emptiness and hope.

Session 5 | The Heart of Emptiness: Blissful Interconnection with Dr. Robert Thurman & Raghu Markus

“Emptiness is just relativity. It’s the scientific discovery of relativity long ahead of Einstein. It’s very simple. You don’t have to try to grab it and worry about it. It just means that everything interconnects with everything, and it did so from the beginning.” - Dr. Robert Thurman

Opening the May 3rd sessions of the 2019 Spring on Maui: Wisdom of Emptiness Retreat by leading a group chanting recitation of the Heart Sutra, a pivotal text in Mahayana Buddhism; Dr. Robert Thurman joins Raghu for a conversation focused on the topic of emptiness through the Tibetan Buddhist lens. Exploring how to integrate our small, separate selves into the wisdom and truth of our natural state of blissful interconnection, Dr. Thurman and Raghu offer readings, meditations, and reflections elucidating the Buddhist take on the reality of emptiness, void, awareness, compassion, and uncovering the true Self.

Session 6 | Maharajji & the Divine Feminine: Women’s Stories of Neem Karoli Baba with Mira Goetsch, Sunanda Markus, Parvati Markus, Raghu Markus, & Ram Dass

“I walked in the room, and there was Maharajji sitting on the tucket. That moment was so powerful, as if something inside me slammed and said, ‘This is what you’ve waited for your entire life.’ It was so immediate, and I knew there was nowhere else for me to ever be again.” - Sunanda Markus

We hear all the stories from the men who traveled to India to have darshan of Ram Dass’ Guru, Neem Karoli Baba–affectionately known as Maharajji–but what was it like for the women who spent time enveloped within his divine loving presence? In this second session from day three of the 2019 Spring on Maui: Wisdom of Emptiness Retreat, Raghu welcomes Mira Goetsch, Sunanda Markus, and Parvati Markus on stage to share stories highlighting their unique experiences with Maharajji, and the budding seeds of inner-transformation which he planted within each of their hearts. Punctuating the session, Ram Dass joins the conversation, offering a story of healing anger through opening to the motherly compassion of Maharajji.

Session 7 | Reverberations of Practice: Mantra & Devotion with Krishna Das

“This chanting we are doing here, in India they call it ‘remembering the names of God.’ I don’t know anything about God, but because of Maharajji, I do know what love is. I don’t live there most of the time, but I had that hit, so I know that’s real, and that’s where I want to live. Chanting is the main practice I do to bring myself back to that place, that experience of Nowness, of being here in that love, that presence.” - Krishna Das

Exploring the importance of sowing seeds of practice in our daily lives, Krishna Das illustrates the deep, devotional wellspring of the spiritual heart untethered from the grasping tendrils of the unchecked mind. Beginning day three’s third session of the 2019 Spring on Maui: Wisdom of Emptiness Retreat by sharing a melodious and resonant group kirtan practice, Krishna Das then opens the floor to audience questions surrounding psychedelics, Maharajji, overcoming suffering, and the nature of karma. 

Session 8 | The Longing of Creation: A Writing Workshop with Anne Lamott

“It all is dependent on becoming creators, on following your creative lives, on following the calling you had as a child...From then on, there’s a thing inside of us, and it’s part of all creation. If you have a secret longing to write, or sing, or dance; it’s going to hurt not to.” - Anne Lamott

NYT bestselling author, Anne Lamott opens the May 4th sessions of the 2019 Spring on Maui: Wisdom of Emptiness Retreat with an LSRF retreat first! Much more than a simple writers workshop, Anne shares the holographic nature of her writing wisdom: “I can tell you every single thing I know about writing, but it’s also everything I know about life.” Infusing the workshop with raw vulnerability and endearing wit, she lights expressive sparks of creativity, volition, and radical self love, before closing the session by answering audience questions about writing and life.

Session 9 | Meditation & The Mind with Duncan Trussell, David Nichtern, Raghu Markus, & Ram Dass

“We’ve been going through these different concepts around emptiness, compassion, and being love. There needs to be–for all of us–some steps that we take to deal with mind. I repeat what Maharajji said, ‘I’ve done everything for you; I leave the mind to you.’” - Raghu Markus.

In this second session from day four of the 2019 Spring on Maui: Wisdom of Emptiness Retreat, Raghu Markus invites comedian and podcaster, Duncan Trussell, and Buddhist teacher and musician, David Nichtern, to the stage. Opening the conversation by diving honestly into the truth of pain and suffering, they infuse comedy, mindfulness, and wisdom to teach meditation for the modern age. The group shares readings, along with a sitting practice, before Ram Dass joins to elucidate qualities of the soul.

Session 10 | Ram Dass x East Forest: A Musical Meditation with East Forest ft. Krishna Das

“Ram Dass, by talking about loving awareness, is actually giving us the chance to embody it and feel it through the music.” - East Forest

This third session from day four of the 2019 Spring on Maui: Wisdom of Emptiness Retreat marks another LSRF retreat first, as impeccably talented electronic musician, East Forest, takes the stage to perform tracks live from his album Ram Dass x East Forest. Merging sound samples recorded during a visit with Ram Dass at his Maui home, East Forest takes the audience on a meditative journey through resonant soundscapes of loving awareness.

Session 11 | The Bliss of Suffering: Rediscovering Mercy with Anne Lamott & Dr. Robert Thurman

“Mercy is radical kindness. That’s the heart of God...Mercy is based in the belief that grace bats last...Mercy means compassion, empathy, a heart for someone’s troubles. It’s not something you do; it’s something in you that is accessed, revealed, or cultivated.” - Anne Lamott

Opening the May 5th sessions from the 2019 Spring on Maui: Wisdom of Emptiness Retreat, Anne Lamott and Dr. Robert Thurman join forces to explore the notion of mercy through the unique melting pot of their vast and varying spiritual perspectives. After sharing stories of mercy and offering insight from a down-to-earth, Christian lens, Anne invites Dr. Thurman to decode the intrinsically blissful nature of the universe from the Buddha’s perspective. Their radiant chemistry shines through as they dive into dark subjects like suffering and death with the utmost levity and grace.

Session 12 | An Honest Journey: A Live Mindrolling Podcast with Duncan Trussell, Anne Lamott, Pete Holmes, & Raghu Markus

“When we’ve merged with God, when we’ve found our true identity, chances are you aren’t going to lie, chances are you aren’t going to steal, cheat, be hurtful or ugly. It is a beautiful thing to be moral, but it is even more beautiful to be moral as a representation of something that has occurred inside.” - Pete Holmes 

Where do honesty, comedy, and emptiness intersect on the spiritual path? In this very special second session from day five of the 2019 Spring on Maui: Wisdom of Emptiness Retreat, Raghu Markus is joined on stage by podcaster, Duncan Trussell; author, Anne Lamott; and, comedian, Pete Holmes, for an insightful and hilarious live Mindrolling Podcast. Topics range from honesty and emptiness, to nondualism and Maharajji, as they share personal stories and inquiries uncovering the cosmic giggle beneath the heavy veneer of the spiritual journey.

Session 13 | Flow of Grace: Hanuman Chalisa Workshop with Krishna Das

“Maharajji said, ‘Every line of the Hanuman Chalisa is Maha Mantra.’ These Names of God are our own true indwelling presence, the love that lives within us as who we are. The Name is only good for that; for love, for wisdom, for reality.“ - Krishna Das

Closing out the day five sessions from the 2019 Spring on Maui: Wisdom of Emptiness Retreat, Krishna Das is joined onstage with his band for a Hanuman Chalisa workshop. Harkening the Hanuman Chalisa as “a long invocation to awaken our hearts and to move us deeper into ourselves, into that love,” he describes this particular mantra as a practice which connects us to Hanuman’s flow of grace, helping remove obstacles from our path while fulfilling our purest desires. With these intentions set, Krishna Das and friends lead a cascading waterfall of some of their most potent and recognizable Hanuman Chalisa melodies.
