We are currently planning to hold the OffTheLeftEye Experience: The Spiritual World Around You on the weekend of July 23-26, 2021. Although we hope to be able to hold this as an in-person event in Bryn Athyn, PA as originally envisioned, because of the uncertainties around the pandemic, we are also making arrangements to hold the event virtually if needed.
About the Event
The OTLE Experience will be an immersive multi-day exploration of the spiritual content we cover on our YouTube channel with the hosts and online community viewers have grown to love. Attendees can expect a transformative weekend with group bonding exercises and workshops, expertly guided meditations, and master class presentations from Curtis Childs, Dr. Jonathan Rose, Chelsea Rose Odhner, and other offTheLeftEye team members, as well as professors from the Institute for Swedenborgian Studies at Bryn Athyn College.
If you’re interested in attending this event, we ask that you take the next step as soon as possible for our planning:
Register Your Interest: In spring 2021, we will evaluate the current situation for travel and consult with the event host, Bryn Athyn College, about restrictions on campus. At that time, we’ll communicate with potential attendees about whether we will be offering an in-person event, a completely virtual one, or a hybrid of the two. Anyone who registers now will be on that initial contact list and have first dibs on housing for an in-person event.
We remain hopeful that we will be able to bring people together in person, but if the pandemic makes the impossible and we need to go virtual, you’ll enjoy the same energizing and connecting events you’ve come to expect from offTheLeftEye!
The following is a general outline of offerings for the event:
Keynote: “The Spiritual World Around You” with Curtis Childs
OffTheLeftEye Studio tour and peek behind the scenes at how the videos on our YouTube channel are made
Master class sessions on how Swedenborg’s theology connects to the world around us
