La Ville au Roi

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 controversial points are discussed.

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.

It’s funny what goes through your mind when you spend several hours walking round in circles chanting! In my experience it can be as mundane as thinking about the person who laid the carpet, or as profound as contemplating the significance of spiritual practice. Here’s what came up for me in our most recent session:

In a few billion years the sun will burn out and it’s gravitational mass will be reduced to the point where it can no longer maintain it’s influence on the…
