In Wild Heaven 

Hello 🙂

How are you? 

I am great 🙂 Being here with a direct physical incarnation of Divinity, living in harmony with nature,  people and animals and having an awakening focus to everything each day, feels like wild heaven… In fact, I heard a wonderful song of similar name on the plane jukebox flying here: R.E.M’s ‘Near Wild Heaven’. 

It occurs to me that the more we willingly relinquish in favour of Truth, Reality, unconditioned Love – the happier we are. Or at least, the happier we end up: it can involve a process, sometimes a rather long one – lol! I believe this is also why Amma recommends seva (selfless service) as the primary awakening practice for all her devotees. In the deepest place within, it quite simply makes a human being happiest to serve without personal gain. 

My friends and I have been sharing that it is actually difficult to do paid work here at the ashram, because one feels as if going against a great tide…as if, in the very air and atmosphere of Amritapuri, this dharma is flowing.  

As such, I have settled on a new schedule for Private Sessions while I am here with Amma. I have not yet settled on the same for the Groups, I am still feeling into that and patiently awaiting intuition. Therefore, for now I have cancelled all existing Group Healings, so please note this. 

I will be available for one Private Session per day on Zoom in the usual way, but for 7 days per week. Sessions will be at 2 30pm IST (9am GMT) each day. This begins on the 17th February. As a  reminder, I am returning to London on the 12th April and will adjust my availability accordingly at that time. Apologies if any of this is an inconvenience you. 

Here is the link to book Private Sessions (NB any which have been previously booked will not be affected and will go ahead) :-

I would like to share a couple of short points, from things I have learned by listening to the satsangs and my experiences here. 

One aspect of compassion is viewing all experiences which come to us – the good, the bad and the ugly – as gifts from God. When this attitude becomes true and real, the mind immediately becomes tranquil. 

Something crucial I find about Darshan with Amma, in particular when asking a question, is that – whatever I bring – Amma consistently responds with such a relaxed feeling and way about Her. It makes me feel that, if Amma is so relaxed about this, perhaps I can relax about it too. That is one of the greatest gifts Amma has given me over the course of my lifetime (and possibly many lifetimes – who knows?). 

One devotee shared a very beautiful thing which Amma once said : “At the end of our days on this earth, after all our successes and failures, the measure of our life will be how much we have loved” ~ Amma

Amma Live Tomorrow

Hello 🙂

Thank you to all those who attended the Group to heal Shame this Wednesday. I was deeply moved… Thank you for having such courage and for those who shared, to share in the way you did.

Amma is transmitting her monthly live public program online tomorrow 🙂 🙂 🙂 It begins at 12 30pm BST. There is a beautiful – and extended – White Flowers Meditation translated by Shubamrita or Swamiji, followed by a speech about personal experiences with Amma from one of the brahmacharis / brahmacharinis / ashram residents. Some of these speeches (satsangs) have been incredibly touching and transformative to be part of. The fire of devotional connection with the Guru is actually what I feel most deeply (of anything in my life) and sometimes these speeches communicate the wordless vastness of that surprisingly well. Amma will sing bhajans (devotional songs to the Divine) with her band and there is Arati (the fire ceremony). The whole program is usually about 4 hours. As such, feel free to dip in and out, or even have it on in the background if there is no other choice. You can also watch it on your phone if you are in transit. Simply the energy and consciousness coming through your screen will create healing for you, your home atmosphere and the people around you, I can assure you. 

You need to register, but it is free, as is everything which Amma does because it is always offered as seva (selfless service) :-

Looking forward to seeing you again in a coupe of weeks time at the next Group,

Mukti Tonight in London

Hello,

This evening, Adyshanti’s wife Mukti will be giving a talk on awakening at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education, Beauchamp Lodge, 2 Warwick Crescent

London, W2 6NE. It’s £12. I will be there along with other familiar faces. I can’t wait! This is the first time she has given satsang in London, maybe even in Europe (she is from California). She’ll also be doing a retreat day, which is all day Saturday.

I will be away 7th June – 15th June on a 7 night silent retreat with Adyashanti in the Netherlands.

Thank you to all of you who participated in the Bank Holiday deal. I noticed that the effect, power and clarity of the sessions on that day was very powerful. It seems this way on Bank Holidays in general; it’s like London finally breathes a sigh of relief and stops. And in that space we can really play with energy 🙂

I was in conversation with one of you yesterday and you said the most beautiful thing, which I want to share with the group. This person was describing his first meeting with the Dalai Lama and said it was like meeting his best friend. That really touched me…….that is exactly how I felt when I met Amma for the first time and I had never heard it expressed like that.

Have a great weekend,

Love,
