Event Description

led by David Brazier & Jnanamati Williams

A workshop of contemplation and creativity, sharing images  and words just for the sake of it, reflecting upon them, letting their voice and form penetrate deeper, following the thread of spirit and beauty. This workshop is open to anybody who likes the idea. You do not need an established creative talent to appreciate what may come forth through the chemistry of meeting and sharing.  This will be a group experience as well as a personal journey, seeing and listening to each other’s experiments and inspirations. Come and find your Muse. All forms of art and creativity involve opening oneself to a power and influence that comes from beyond the logic and routine of everyday life. This, therefore, is also a time for allowing oneself, one’s heart, one’s mind and one’s body, greater freedom. Here in the midst of natural surroundings we can go forth and study natural forms and cycles and involve ourselves in the endlessly changing mandala of life.

Pinterest board "Adorning a Pure Land" a place to post related imagery and material in advance of the retreat.

Cost: €250 full board (5 nights)

My medical condition continues to be a mystery. It is clear that I do not have any of the big nasty things - brain tumour, cracked skull, stroke, etc - as these have been ruled out by MRI investigation. Nonetheless I continue to have persistent, continuous head pain that varies in intensity and I become exhausted by the least effort so that I am functioning like an invalid incapable of doing very much. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…

“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue

This is a short video of a Buddhist monk and his family. 

It raised questions on parenting and Buddhism - does detachment (or perhaps quietism), as practiced here, lead to demotivation and disengagement with the world around one?

His children find the detachment practised by the monk disquieting. They appreciate the irony of detachment, which is supposed to…

Ho’ponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice, based on universal forgiveness, that was rediscovered and popularised in the 80s. A man called Joe Vitale(Hawaiian I think)  became enchanted by the practice after his daughter was healed from an…
