FULL MOON

Sitting under the walnut tree I watch the full moon rising. The sun has set, the birds are settling, night is on the way. A great peace enfolds. Under the tree, daffodils shine amidst a carpet of wild spring flowers. I sip my tea and ponder.…Continue

Today I did not set eyes upon another human being all day. That is not an unusual occurrence here. Life as a hermit is quiet. Sometimes my mind become very quiet in the midst of ll this tranquility. Nonetheless, I do like to keep abreast opf what is…Continue

After two months in Italy, teaching and learning, it was good to get back to La Ville au Roi and see that the walls and roof were still in place and nature had not completely taken over. Then, almost immediately, I had a trip to Belgium and…Continue

I'M TRAVELLING AGAIN

Started by David Brazier. Last reply by David Brazier Dec 5, 2017. 3 Replies

Sometimes i think that I have been travelling all my life. This is somewhat true, both literally and metaphorically. The endless spiritual journey takes one to ever new domains of life-meaning, especially if one is willing to take the risks that pop…Continue

What did I do this week? In the States we celebrated Thanksgiving the traditional beginning of the season of conspicuous overconsumption, for no other reason than we can, though it is cloaked in turkeys and santa suits.I met with a Chaplain peer…Continue

The year is turning, the leaves are going yellow, wind and rain break up the sunnier times.My trip to Korea proved to be a great success. Last year I was unable to go due to illness, so it was good to get back into the swing of the work and the…Continue

I have given up giving daily reports for a while now as one day can be much like another at Eleusis, but when one looks back there has been a lot of work in the garden and keeping the place in good order, visitors coming and going with wonderful…Continue

It is a delight and relief to see tiny fresh leaves growing on the lower twigs of the walnut trees. They all sent forth optimistic sprouts six weeks ago and then were hit by severe late frost, turning all black and forlorn. Recovery started at the…Continue

GROUP

Posted by David Brazier on January 11, 2019 at 9:43 2 Comments

I’ve always been interested in groupwork. Recently I’ve been facilitating a rather challenging group.

Carol drove me into Ottawa at midday on Wednesday 12th. I had spent the morning being interviewed and making a short film.

I was to take a local plane to Montreal then fly to Paris and on to Bilbao in Spain with Air France, due to arrive at nine in the morning local time the following day. F would meet me in Spain and take me back to stay with him in a village near Vittoria.…

I'd like to try to say something about real life, which is the only thing that is really interesting.

I have been a bookworm ever since I learnt to read, which was not until I was seven years old. By that time I had already had important spiritual experiences. I was a rather odd child. Many ideas went through my head that tended to set me apart from other children.
