How It Began
By Mayke Beckmann Briggs, author of Here You Are
Meet my dear friend, Diana Lorence. The first time I met Diana several years ago, she was in the middle of a long period of silence. As you can imagine, we got along great from the start. We had been invited to meet her and her husband by good friends on whose farm property they lived. Thus we became part of an ongoing philosophical inquiry into the deeper truths of life, led by her husband, Michael Anthony Lorence.
The Lorences reside in a small dwelling in the California mountains. For years they have lived mostly in retreat from the world in order to free themselves to pursue a life of simplicity and inquiry. With Diana asking the questions, and Michael devoted to truth and disciplined philosophical reasoning, they spend their days in contemplation, and living the highest truth as they discover it. This is both a joyful and very difficult path, as all true paths are.
The fruit of their labor has been of great benefit and inspiration to all the people whose lives they have touched, both by their life choices and during their fireside conversations with guests. Up until recently it was mostly Michael who gently guided these meetings and conversations. Then after one conversation with a large group of women, people asked for the first time to hear from the silent Diana.
The new website that has been created for Diana, called "Innermost House," gives a surprisingly accurate flavor of their spirit and intention, now expressed in a whole new way by Diana in her own meetings. Many people from all over the world and from all kinds of different backgrounds are drawn to her. Especially women are interested to hear her views, wanting to relate to her experience of a life lived with such pure intention.
A door has been opened for the world to find her and partake of her light and love. Don't miss this beautiful and graceful wife of a wonderful and truly wise man. Here is the website with contact information as well as many more writings, photos, comments, and stories of how people have been touched and inspired. Don't be surprised if the website itself gives you a sense of instantly feeling connected with something true and essential to human well being.
