Official Homecoming 2015 Thread!
It's that time of year again!

As we are still working to regain our bearings in the wake of Carla's passing, the three of us remaining at the L/L Research homebase got together to discuss this year's Homecoming gathering. The event hinged completely on Jim's needs and preference. Fortunately when asked if he would be interested in hosting this year's Homecoming, he did not for a moment hesitate: we would keep the torch lit and continue dreaming the impossible dream.

Homecoming runs from Friday, September 4 to Sunday, September 6.

Please feel free to use this thread to discuss everything Homecoming, along with arranging carpooling and hotel sharing.

For more information and to register, please visit this page.

Homecoming was particularly a special time for Carla, where she got to mingle and interact with many seekers who have been touched by her work over the years. While Carla will not be joining us on the physical plane, we have no doubt she'll be smiling down at this joyous and love-filled event. Most who attend can attest to the magic in the air at the gathering of such souls and the recharging of spiritual batteries.

Jim, Gary, and I can't wait to see you!

With love and light,
The L/L Crew

How fast do the spots fill up? We definitely intend to come but the $400 needs to be saved for which may take a little bit

It varies depending on the year. This year is feeling like a full house, so they may fill up fast. If you're sure you're coming, shoot us an email and we'll put some spots on hold for you.

RE: Official Homecoming 2015 Thread!
damn. I just spent 20-25 minutes filling in an application for a visa waiver into the US, and then it told me my old waiver was still valid.

I just assumed these things would only last for 12 months, but instead they last for 2 years.

*facepalm*

oh well, paid my registration fee for Homecoming, plane tickets were booked months ago, just 3 months till I'm back in Louisville.

yay!

RE: Official Homecoming 2015 Thread!
I would love to meet the L/L community but the cost is beyond me this year. When I noticed Jim's earings during his interview with Denise Wilbanks I felt an instant association. I said to my fiancee "Hey do you remember when I had a loop and stud in my left ear? Look at Jim's!"

The hippy connection aside, GLB, Austin, plenum, anagogy, isis, yera and more have all said things on this forum that have affirmed or deepened my own perspective. 

In the meantime, thank you for your efforts at hinting to me that, at times I am somewhat off track! (especially the mods)

I do feel called to come in some manner but it surely won't be this year. 

I am one who hides in the shadows. Maybe one day I will meet you all. Maybe not on this earth. Maybe I already met some of you prior to this life.

I do think of you all as a familly even if I do like to mirror opposites which seem to annoy some.

Will depend on work for me, and if it is full by the time I know, then so be it, the spots will be well filled.

I agree, Minyatur. I feel close to everyone here in spirit and there is no distance in that regard.

Although, Plenum is a great marketer, he has painted a nice picture of what the event is like, and I would enjoy to attend.

Hi Sabou, there are still plenty of spots. I don't think we're in any danger of filling up this year.

Glad you got something written up, Eddie!

For those who've interacted with Eddie only through the forums or the net, you really miss out. In person his energy is not only as kind and sociable as it gets, but he's a human encyclopedia of knowledge that just opens up a wealth of information with exact recall when you run search queries to him. : )

Ankh has already arrived with another mutual friend from Sweden, and got a text from Plenum that he's in LAX on his way. (He sent the first text yesterday morning.) Garry, I don't think you could travel further on this planet.

My wife, Lana, and Nadja are running an epic grocery trip and we're beginning the home stretch to the event. 31 people this year with 15 presentations. It will be our first Homecoming without Carla, though I have to believe that she won't miss the event now that she can see the "dome of light" she so often described being created at events where people of like-heart gather.

We're all looking forward to seeing the few of you who will be here, and sending love to all.

: ) GLB
