Our funding drive raised just under $62,000! Although we did not reach our goal, we are greatly inspired by the generosity and enthusiasm of our readers.

The Chronicles will continue to bring teachings, stories, tributes and news to a worldwide audience. Ocean will continue to offer online classes and practice opportunities to a vibrant and growing online community.
