Joseph Rubano  

The 43rd Annual Intensive is scheduled for April 20-23, 2023, at Isis Oasis in Geyserville, CA. Everyone is welcome!
Joseph Rubano will be leading it, and as you can see from his website, https://www.josephrubano.com, it should be a great one! 

Isis Oasis, where the Annual Intensive was held for many years, is about an hour's drive north of central San Rafael, easily accessible from both SFO and the Santa Rosa airports. Amenities include: a large swimming pool, three hot tubs, comfortable double rooms, spacious dorm areas with adjacent baths, and good chairs for sitting.

The Intensive will begin late afternoonon Thursday, April 20th, and will end after dinner on Sunday the 23rd. 

Tuition is on a sliding scale from $375 to $650. It includes your lodging, bedding and towels, delicious vegetarian meals, and the Intensive. Please plan to pay at the highest level of the sliding scale that you can afford. This will allow others who need to pay less the opportunity to attend.

Origin is a 501c3 non-profit, and those paying above the base price will be making a tax-deductible donation to support the scholarship fund.

You can reserve a place, donate to Origin, or sponsor someone at PayPal.

Checks can be mailed to Origin at 9 Partridge Court, San Rafael CA 94901. 

We hope you'll join us!
