Before our Friend, Christine, left the Big Party, she created a virtual, interactive world for the Teaching material.  It is called Sanity Island and can be found on Second Life.

If you are like a couple of us on the Harmony Workshop team (self-described, non-techies who once lacked interest in a 3D environment), this note is especially for you.

Please know we are very aware that there is a bit of an initiation or challenge getting to Sanity Island Second Life and possibly this page will serve as a boost to check it out.

Below you will find answers to the following questions:

WHAT IS SANITY ISLAND, SECOND LIFE?

Sanity Island on Second Life is designed to be fun ... and it is also an educational sim, describing The Way of Intelligence.  (As it is used in Second Life, 'sim' is a shortened word for 'simulator' or 'simulation'.)
