Posi Lyon

Having grown up in a city and being a city dweller all my life, I had been longing for the community feel of a village, as well as a personal connection with Spirit. I found both at GGCSL.

My passion is producing spiritual events, and what I love most about GGCSL is working and being with people who believe that TRUTH is the watchword of our philosophy.

Marin County feels like Camelot. When I wake in the morning I feel a sense of clarity and utter beauty surrounds me. The redwoods are my friends. The ocean gives me a feeling of knowing the eternal.

The two things I love most about GGCSL are the high consciousness of the practitioner body, and its deep foundation in LOVE. It is the most loving community I’ve ever known.

I love journaling. It clears my mind, clarifies my thoughts and brings me ultimately to peace.

I especially enjoy drawing, encaustic painting and oil painting. Making art brings me joy. “To offer no resistance to life is to be in a state of grace, ease and lightness. This state is then no longer dependent on things being a certain way, good or bad.” –Eckhardt Tolle

What I love most about Marin County is that you can drive to the mountains or the beach in an hour! “There is nothing good or bad but thinking makes it so.” –William Shakespeare, Hamlet
