Retreat Report and more…
Happy Solstice to all 🙂
My friends Chetana and Mikko, along with Anthony Gorman and others, are doing some exciting earth healing dragon magic in Avebury today, which has been building up all week. Emails from Ric or Anthony will follow and I will pass on any news.
The retreat with Adyashanti was even more wonderful than I could have imagined. One of you was there with me, along with Sarah and quite a few Vortex students from Finland, the Netherlands (where the retreat was held) and England. This quote sums it up rather well:-
When I look within and see that I am nothing, that is wisdom.
When I look without and see that I am everything, that is love.
And between these two, my life turns.
The experience for me was of embodying awakening in such a way that it was almost invisible. It was like grounding as beingness, which didn’t have an ‘end point’. It wasn’t flashy, there were no ‘bangs’ or ‘pops’, and that is the beauty of this style of teaching. Here is an excerpt from my diary:-
Walking in the forest tonight, in the dark, into great silence. The trees seemed to invite me in, draw me into their midnight darkness and depth. Into Truth and nothingness. But what a full nothing…
I was amazed at how real everyone was with their questions to Adya during satsang, particularly since there were 350 people listening! The rest of the retreat was held completely in silence. We were told that the two most important things to do were to maintain that silence and to show up on time for each of the 6 or so silent sittings per day. And I found that this container was most useful in deepening into silence and embodying (though I must admit I did do quite a bit of laughing and whispering to Sarah!). The overriding sense I got from the retreat was that resting as silence and stabilising in that primarily, is it.
Adyashanti will be holding a retreat in England in August 2014! He will also visit Copenhagen and possibly the Netherlands again just beforehand. You can register for these events in September by visiting his website.
I had a lovely session with one of you recently who said afterwards, “The heart was just…so open and the body was melting. I felt like I was waking up…”. There is no telling exactly why this happened – I leave that in the Mystery from which it arose – but this person is particularly sensitive to the ‘Surrender-Grace’ aspect of Merlin’s Grace energy. Please request this if you would like to try it and haven’t yet.
I have recently tried receiving healing from a practitioner of Scenar. Let me know if you would like his details. This is a healing machine (hand held) which works by stimulating the electrical energy in the body for healing. While I was receiving it for my neck, I literally felt a muscle PHYSICALLY move back into it’s correct position! Here is a video of Scenar being used on a breakfast television program:-
Ric is very excited about a new technique in Vortex which works with Assemblage Points. Please contact me if you would like me ‘to release or clear the possibility thread for ‘X issue’ from your assemblage point. And it can be done at a distance 🙂 More on that to follow.
That’s the news for this week. I look forward to seeing you soon,
