This site is for discussion and sharing of news relating to the work of Dr. David Brazier and his associates, friends, students and disciples. The subject matter is broad and the orientation is often at odds with contemporary rationalism.
La Ville au Roi is the ancient French name of the home and retreat of David Brazier, author of ten books, spiritual teacher, doctor of philosophy, president of the International Zen Therapy Institute (ITZI), and head of the Amida Order. Here he lives, writes, receives guests and reflects upon a full and varied life.
The term Eleusis alludes to the ancient mystery religions. The spirituality of this place draws upon East and West, remythologising, deepening and broadening our appreciation of the mysterious thread of life.
The image of the sunset represents the 'Westward Journey' that in oriental Buddhism signifies the spiritual path leading to the source of all wisdom and awakening.
La Ville au Roi lies in an area off the beaten track, a refuge, retreat and place of peace and spiritual restoration. It is poor land for farming and there is no local industry other than forestry and farming. We are gradually reafforesting the land respecting, observing and being healed by its eternal cycles.
It is possible to visit by prior arrangement and join in with the life close to nature, retreat, write, discuss, imagine and be restored.
