What is the Third Path?
Imagine you are traveling through life as you might a dark forest. The path you are walking is circuitous and daunting, full of many perils and obstacles that demand attention (as life does). And then, in time, you come to a crossroads. To the left the path looks well trod and open. Beautiful flowers grow along it's borders and sweet birdsong fills the air. To the right the path is full of briers and tangled thickets. It is clearly much less used and a certain gloom seems to hang above it. You pause, considering your options. The road to the left seems inviting, clear, well trod, socially acceptable and full of ease. The road to the right seems forbidding, difficult, painful, even. The road less traveled, to be certain. To which will you set your foot?
Most travelers will turn to their left and take the path of ease where many a peer has trod before. A stubborn few will choose the right hand path and navigate it's difficulties as best they can. Rarer still is the one who will push forward, between the opposing paths, finding (or creating) a third way, a way unseen by the many, a way as unique as each foot that steps upon it.
Our goal at Third Path is to guide travelers on this path least walked. To reveal a hidden way. Our seminars and intensives are geared toward the exploration of unusual wisdoms and uncommon truths (often wrapped in paradox) and to bring to integrated consciousness (a wholeness) to what was heretofore unconscious through increased awareness, embodied experience, and acts of ceremony and creativity.
The Third Path is not always the most readily seen nor understood, but it is always one of great power and purpose. And isn't it these that give human life most meaning?
Third Path is dedicated to the exploration of the twin poles of human existence—life and death—in the spirit of immersion within the ever-present moment.
