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 [...]

Easter Festival :: A Blog

LEAVING THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT EASTER FESTIVAL AT UNACHO :: A BLOG 19-22/4/19 I really enjoyed my time here over Easter with those who came to join us, on the Easter Festival, over these historically momentous days. In some ways it was all a bit weird - I was whirling in and out of myself, sometimes with myself in a wholly unfamiliar way, at other times in a totally present way - as if my whole long life and all that had even happened in it - was with me in each moment. Then at other times it was [...]

Portovenere Weekend Seminar :: A Blog

STEPS TO INFINITY PORTOVENERE, ITALY, WEEKEND SEMINAR :: A BLOG 5-7/4/19 Portovenere, such a beautiful old village, by the sea, always a delight to spend our time there, this time though, a little drawback, the weather was somewhat colder than usual, rather spoiling it for me on our breaks and meals there, plus, the number of steps from ground to grouproom is 119, and that faced me 4 times a day - formidable! A special feature of our groups there for the last 9 years, and for the many previous groups in Bologna, Rimini, and elsewhere over the previous 30 [...]
