Ultimately, your life will prove meaningless, unless it is based on the discovery of the spirit within you.
Yes - purpose and meaning can be *temporarily* found by anyone in outside gains, such as money, romance, sex, work, alcohol, drugs, hope, fantasies etc.. but what you gain on the outside can also be lost on the outside!
There IS a reassuring sense of underlying meaning and fulfilment that never leaves us once it is found, but finding it in the first place - that lasting sense that we have arrived home - can be tricky.
Meditation is a MUST! But willful, mental effort alone to reach the meditative state can be dry and funless! Maybe you've already discovered that!
Add the joy of dance, and behold! You can become both a spiritually conscious, AND a JUICY person!
THIS Birmingham Meetup is intended to be a series of organised, and guided events – all designed to excite and awaken your spirit. They will include meditation, dance, probably some gentle yoga, plus ‘other games and shared activities’.
I have decades of experience in conducting Self Discovery workshops. So, ‘other games and activities’ refers to methods of awakening and healing which I shall spontaneously include as the situation demands – drawing on all my previous experience.
Are you tired of asking, “Is this all there is?”
Then, this is for you!
If you’ve been wondering, “How can I find more love in my life?”
Then this is for you!
If you’re lonely, and you just want to meet lonely others over tea and biscuits, then this is NOT FOR YOU!
There are already other Meetups for that!
BUT, if your life has been a suffering.. If you’ve already tried other solutions and still NOT found peace and happiness, then THIS MAY BE FOR YOU!
HOW WILL YOU EVER KNOW, UNLESS YOU TRY IT?
Spiritual awareness CAN deliver the joy you have been searching for! I know that by my own experience. BUT some journeys to achieve that are harder - and some are easier!
These Meetups promise to add the joys of dance, hugs, games, and laughter, to the efforts you may be already making – and promise to enrich your efforts with new ideas and inspiration.
So, if you really are a seeker of truth and fulfilment, then join this Meetup and make your dreams come true!
I cannot save you. Nobody can save you! It sure helps though, if YOUR efforts are supported by a network of similar people, also trying to find their own salvation!
I offer myself only as a catalyst, and I depend on you to bring your own heart-felt needs and commitment.
A good set of accessories would include a tracksuit, bare feet, and a mat to lie on.
No knowledge of dance is required.
Not even a sense of rhythm!
You’ll be discovering your own dance – erupting from within you!
Join today, and start supporting the network that will ultimately enrich your life and WILL support YOU!
We are currently based in Birmingham. If you live outside this city, please join us anyway! We're only just getting started, and nobody knows how far - and how fast - the benefits of this group will spread! It may not be long before I can tell you about day-long events, weekend events, and even foreign holidays in the company of your spiritual friends. So, please keep your membership open, so that the news can reach you!
As a young child I had flash-backs to a beautiful spirit world that I used to live in before being born into this physical realm. Those early memories made me certain that death cannot be the end, because we have lived before, and we shall go on living when we shed our bodies like some worn-out overcoat.
I live this life passionately, but this is not my real home. The day I pass from this world, back into that beautiful spirit world - my real home - I know there will be old friends and lovers waiting for me.
Even as a young child I instinctively I knew that this difficult life is a school. I sensed that we are here to learn through experiences. So, I wasn’t here to waste time! I knew that I had some kind of mission to pursue.
As a result, I have enjoyed an adventure–packed life! Willie Nelson once said, “Most soulful people I know have been around the block a couple of times!” I don’t know Willie Nelson, but otherwise I think I fit that description.
Born on one continent, grew up in the tropics, and then spent my adult years in Britain, I was fortunate to arrive in London at the start of the seventies, at one of the most exciting times in recent history! My intense involvement with alternative psychotherapies began almost as soon as those began to arrive in London from California. Encounter Groups, Bioenergetics, Primal Therapy, Gestalt, Psychodrama etc. I have lived for many years in therapeutic communities, and later in spiritual communities. The large house I owned for a number of years was a centre for meditation, communal living, and self discovery.
Knowing one enlightened Master is considered to be fortunate. So, I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to learn from, and be inspired by, more than one – traveling to various countries to participate in therapy intensives, and meditation retreats.
I conducted ‘Self Discovery’ workshops, in a number of cities, for a number of years – and then, suddenly.. I felt the need to be alone. I needed to undergo some fundamental changes without wanting to defend my vulnerable, liquid state from outside pressures and expectations.
In hindsight, those changes were about letting go of knowledge, and of the mind, and opening up to the heart. About transformation from the need to understand - to the realisation that we can never fully understand - and then the perception that, no matter what, I am ALWAYS being taken care of, so I may as well relax and trust.
Developing alone was good - often fulfilling - but sometimes very lonely. I discovered that I am a spirit IN a body, rather than just body, and that we are all connected. Unfortunately, many other people can’t yet see that! So, without like-minded support, in heightened awareness I can feel like I am walking around a ghost town full of empty people. As Eckhart Tolle puts it, "Many people have barely enough awareness not to bump into things!"
Recently I came across Meetup, and attended my first meeting with the ‘Power Of Now’ group, discussing Eckhart’s book. That made me see that it is time for me to re-emerge from isolation and reconnect with other spiritually awakening people.
I felt that the time has come for me - not only to re-connect - but also to share the wisdom and abilities that I had accumulated from a rich tapestry of experiences. Decades of amazing adventures!
Those decades are gone now. Many of the precious opportunities that I benefited from don’t exist anymore! However, they are still alive in me! From roaming the internet I KNOW that there are vast numbers of spiritually awakening people all over the world who feel isolated, lonely, and unsupported. If I can connect together at least some of us, that would benefit not only you lovely people, but - through the energy WE generate - also the awakening of our planet.
