La Ville au Roi

La Ville au Roi is the ancient French name of the home and retreat of David Brazier, author, spiritual teacher, doctor of philosophy, president of the International Zen Therapy Institute (ITZI), head of the Amida Order. The term Eleusis alludes to the ancient mystery religions, especially those of the goddesses Artemis, Demeter, Eirene and Aphrodite, who preside, respectively, over nature, cultivation, peace and love.

What a week

Posted by Andrew on July 26, 2016 at 22:30 2 Comments
