Summer Festival :: A Blog

FLOWERS OF LOVE SUMMER FESTIVAL :: A BLOG 31/7 - 4/8 '19 We were 80, including staff (Mishka, Tiago, Akali and I), the most for many a year...Of course back in the late Eighties and early Nineties for the SF & WF we would get twice that number and sometimes 200 and more... Still, the group room there, Buddha Hall, was packed, and the Parimal residents had to create lots of space, so that everybody who was in the group could be accommodated there. Our Saranta, who lives and works there, in the organizing of all visiting groups there, writes: [...]

OPT7 :: A Blog

THE LAMPLIGHTERS - END GAME! OPT7 :: A BLOG 20-26/7/19 Abava writes: We were just reading your poem for the Lamplighters - as usual it was spot on and it all came true: Burn your candle bright, Protect it through the night, And then let your light leap To all those who surround you!.... What an amazing training this has been, different to all the others, and this week has been different to any others that we have shared. You set the tone with your introductory talk, 'Who You Are' and we found new depths in the classic meditations, for [...]

Vienna Seminar :: A Blog

DYNAMIC STILLNESS MOVING AROUND VIENNA :: A BLOG 5-7/7/19 We were a remarkable collectivity group of 40, participants from the Eighties, Nineties, Zeros and so on and even a sannyasin who was with me in my own sannyasin days in Brussels in the very early Eighties, amongst them old friends not seen for some years, plus all those who joined the WGC there in Vienna last year... And also Mishora, first time for some years - he was a member of the WG Team for 4 years back in the late Nineties and into the next. (At dinnertime together on [...]

Trees & Rivers :: A Blog

TREES & RIVERS :: A BLOG 21-23/6/19 Here we were, for this last installment, at home here in UNACHO. Missing, unfortunately, was Saranda, so ill now that she can barely stand, let alone travel to join us here. We missed her - and I certainly did! - and somehow still included her in our time together. Enid also was again absent, too ill she says to travel from England. It's a powerful group, lots of old-timers and regulars, so immediately the room, Extraordinary Space, was a cauldron. Just being in it, even in silence and stillness, was healing for all. [...]

Solothurn Seminar :: A Blog

THE COSMIC INTERIOR SOLOTHURN :: A BLOG 14-16/6/19 What to discover there? That all things are not what they seem. That all things reflect true being, behind the scenes - a cosmic play of energy in every cell of life, including your own. A dance. And you are the dance. That - above - is what I wrote, for this seminar, months before. And once again it was how it was. Friday, the town was full. Packed with women. All over Switzerland they were demonstrating, and they arrived from all around Solothurn to participate in this national happening there, & to [...]

The 25th Rainbow/One Spirit Festival :: A Blog

THE 25TH RAINBOW/ONE SPIRIT FESTIVAL :: A BLOG SUNDAY 9/6/19 My 22nd or so. After years in Baden-Baden, then shortly in Munich and then Karlsruhe, this annual festival now takes place in Freudenstadt, up the A5 and then a long winding road up into the Black Forest, with a spectacular view from the top, and then down a bit to the town itself. Mishka with me, and in another car, Vasra & Simitra, to set up the equipment and to help and support in various ways. Busier this year than in the last few years. Which naturally pleased the creator [...]

Seminar in Corfu :: A Blog

THE CUP RUNNETH OVER 7 DAY SEMINAR IN CORFU :: A BLOG 25/5-1/62019. I love this island. Here, nature shines. A lot of spiritual work goes on here too - especially in the area we again were - Arillas, exactly on the coast. I kept meeting people from 'the past' , even a few from 40 years ago, in Poona. So I'm still recognizable... It's also where Deva Premal & Miten come every year for a while, Peter Makena too (but not this year) - all good friends of ours. And this year we had our seminar in the fabulous [...]

Seminar in Bath :: A Blog

THE EAGLE HAS LANDED SEMINAR IN BATH, ENGLAND :: A BLOG                                                                                         17-19 MAY 2019. Ah! England! There is something there for me which exists nowhere else in the world. Perhaps not surprisingly. A completion, an embrace with the earlier part of my life, waiting for me always. The very soil, the atmosphere, the people, the language, London, where I was born & bred, in particular. This time it electrified me, and also my relationship with those who came - many of whom have been with me for donkey's [...]

Copenhagen Seminar :: A Blog

THE INNER REVOLUTION SEMINAR IN COPENHAGEN :: A BLOG 10-12/5/19 The first - Friday - evening we were all pulled into the South Pole of silence and stillness like never before, anywhere. The whole of Saturday morning there was Deep Energy Surgery (Tiago's description) for everybody. What kept running through my mind was a statement in Shakespeare's Macbeth, by Macbeth, in response to Lady Macbeth goading and inciting him to murder King Duncan who was an honoured guest at their castle, so that Macbeth could succeed him as king. Macbeth responded, "I dare do all that man may do; who [...]

Berlin Seminar :: A Blog

FROM THE OTHER SHORE SEMINAR IN BERLIN :: A BLOG 26-28/4/19 For the first time, after a host of other places over many years, we found ourselves at the Buddhist Centre there in Berlin, a very impressive place, we were given a huge room, with a giant golden Buddha at one end (see pic above!) and at the the other end, a number of large portraits of Buddhist teachers (see pic below!), and all around, on both sides of the room, a series of tankas (old-time Buddhist paintings). It was like being buried in Buddhism, so I began by lofting [...]
