Finding meaning in 2017

Dear Yogis
Wishing you all a purpose and meaning in 2017 which will bring you a sense of contentment with what is alloted to us all in this short material life.   Stand up to those who through ignorance cannot see past their own selfish needs and wants and let us guard what is left of our precious nature .
Thanks again to all who supported us in saving The River Crane corridor from a new build and let us keep vigilant to any new attempts to domesticate this wild space which is so necessary for the flora and fauna to replenish the whole environment of this unique space in our crowded urban landscape.
Here is a female sparrow hawk who visits the Field and enjoys with us the wonderful trees and dark corridor where our bats feed and live and the giant Ash trees sway in the breeze and enrich our lives with their beauty.

To Find the Happiness of a resting place

Our life is a series of demands for comfort, for security, for position, for fulfilment, for happiness,
for recognition, and we also have rare moments of wanting to find out what is truth, what is God.
So God or truth becomes synonymous with our satisfaction.  We want to be gratified; therefore
truth becomes the end of all search. of all struggle, and God becomes the ultimate resting place.
We move from one pattern to another, from one cage to another, from one philosophy or society
to another, hoping to find happiness, not only happiness in relationship with people, but also the happiness of a resting place where the mind will never be disturbed, where the mind will cease to
be tortured by its own discontent.  We may put it in different words, we may use different
philosophical jargons, but that is what we all want - a place where the mind can rest, where the
mind is not tortured by its own activities, where there is no sorrow.
Krishnamurti, The Collected Works vol V111, p.328

The above wise words from 'K' resonated with me as the manic build up to the season of 'Peace and Goodwill' continues to ring hollow for so many in our chaotic world.

If you are seeking to find the happiness of a resting place you may like to join our yogic circle in meditating on the wish for a Place to rest for all of us in the world today.

The only journey worth taking is the journey within....

.the only real resting place is our true self.

Om shanti shanti shanti

Winter Preparations

Dear Yogis,

So much happening and happened this year which has tested our resolve to be true to ourselves.
Not always easy to stand up for your beliefs but amazing how much support comes to your aide when you do!  Thanks to so many old and new friends who have supported us this year and in particular the EcoWarriors defending mother nature from yet more buildings and "Carbon Infestations" (Star Trek followers will know this reference!)

Here are some photos of beautiful nature in our still lovely planet Earth.

Om shanti

Autumn Equinox 22nd Sept 2016

Dear Yogis

Enjoy this day and prepare for the falling leaves ,
the letting go of all you do not need anymore.
Off to the sea and some energy to renew after our battles with those who are false under the guise of good.  Be aware and still open to love.

Send us light

Dear yogis,
Thank you for all the support as we stand up against another invasion of our natural habitat. We wish no harm to others but sometimes one must be counted when the weak or voiceless do not have sufficient ability to stop an injustice.

Peace. Peace.  Peace

Eel pie island yoga morning

Dear yogis

We formed our circle of light overlooking the beautiful river last Friday.  Good response to the chakra triad and flows.  Some tears and alot of laughter!    Our vegetarian feast was prepared with love by a very spiritual chef  before he went to prayers.

We will see how to offer more.

Love and light
