• A Unique Opportunity to Receive Channelled Wisdom From Powerful Guides.

    Taunton Quaker Meeting House, Bath Place, Taunton

    Hello dear All, Robin and Sigrid here. As you may remember, we have had contact with the Stroud Group of Channellers before and Robin has now been able to invite Gina to come to us and introduce us to her Star-Guides. Gina works with people on a spiritual awakening journey who are seeking support and insights beyond the ordinary. She assists by channelling evolved intergalactic consciousnesses who have the gift of connecting groups and individuals with their Higher Selves, guiding and revealing the most empowered, joyful way forward with any presenting issue. These channelled Star-Guides offer a unique multidimensional perspective with their ability to ‘see’ the energetics of any situation. They bring outside-the-box, non-human and yet very accessible healing solutions that are accompanied by their blissful light-frequency transmission that feels joyful, gentle, kind and loving. People usually enjoy bathing in the energy and wisdom that they are here to share with us. Gina will channel a group of very loving Guides from other planetary systems. She is currently working with the Divine 9 from the Pleiades who are very keen to converse with Humanity! They will begin with a transmission of Light Language, followed by a short channelled message and answering the group’s questions. After a tea break, we will reconvene for a channelled guided transformational process, connecting you with a blissful high-frequency energy to leave you feeling recharged and peaceful. These guides are gentle, kind and loving and this promises to be a very uplifting experience. For more details on Gina’s work, please go to: www.guidancefromthestars.com This promises to be an exceptional afternoon and we expect more than the usual number of guests. You are very welcome to bring one or more people along who you think might benefit, but please let me know whether and how many. Sending you as always much love and blessings, Robin and Sigrid __________________________________________________________________________ Our meeting will take place as usual at the Taunton Quaker Meeting House, 13 Bath Place, Taunton TA1 4EP at 2.30pm. Arrive from around 2pm. Free parking on Sundays directly behind the building. We have the use of the kitchen for refreshments. Please bring drinks, biscuits or fruit, as you wish. Voluntary contribution towards the rent of the room: 5 pounds.

  • Launch of THE AURORA GATHERING!

    Taunton Quaker Meeting House, Bath Place, Taunton

    We are honoured to be launching the first Aurora Gathering in Somerset. This is an deeply valuable opportunity for us to communicate with others without any agenda, rules, belief systems or assumptions. It’s a chance to speak honestly from the heart about whatever is happening for us, knowing that we will be heard with compassion and without judgement. We may then see that underneath all our apparent differences is what we have in common – we are all the same. We may then experience the understanding that we are not separate but are all on Life’s Journey... however we may see that. Do come and join us as we sit, talk, relax, laugh and connect, sharing what we have learnt – or find difficult in our lives - knowing that we are amongst those who care. All are welcome. In this way we may get a sense of who we truly are...... Why Aurora? Aurora is the first ray of light from the sun at dawn – the first ray of hope that is there every day of the year, every year.... We look forward to welcoming you!

  • A Great Honour – Founder of Cygnus Coming to Taunton – With A Powerful Message!

    Taunton Quaker Meeting House, Bath Place, Taunton

    Hello Everyone, Sigrid here. You are warmly invited to come to our February meeting when we will welcome Geoff Napier, the founder of the Cygnus Book Club and the Cygnus Community Cafe Meetings across the country. This is promising to be a very interesting afternoon as Geoff will not only talk about what's happening in the rest of the country in relation to the above but also give us details on the latest development within the Cygnus community: the Aurora Gatherings. I found an initial description of what this is about, on the Conscious Media Coalition website which I quote from here: Quote: "A note about the name: Aurora. The first rays of the sun that chase away the dark night sky before the sun slips over the horizon each morning. In a word: the dawn. Our own dawn. As Gandhi advised us. You must BE the change you wish to see in the world. These meetings are just for that. A little less DO-ing and a little more BE-ing. We gather together to explore our authentic selves and share our new insights as we let go of our conditioning and fixed mindsets. These are places to meet others of like heart. We are all learning to free ourselves from our dogmas and beliefs. We set the intention that whatever we do or say is for the highest good for all. The meetings are safe spaces to share our day to day experiences and insights to so as to gain deeper insights into the Why of our lives. What messages are waiting for us to notice in the events or experiences as they unfold each day? How do we remove the obstacles that obscure the light from our already radiating inner suns?" Unquote. You may think it's not that much different from our meetings, when we have a general discussion meeting. And indeed, to a certain extent it isn't. I think we may be a little bit more about DO-ing rather than BE-ing, especially when we have presentations about certain topics. What we are doing then is take in what others are DO-ing, but I think so far it's been a fairly good mix. However, I wonder whether we need to go a little deeper during these tumultous times which try to uproot so many things and people. Great changes are happening, out there as well as in us, about which we know nothing, if we don't enquire further. This is one way to change our story which in turn, can change the world. So, if you are curious, do come along and bring friends or family. Please do let me know whether you can come and how many you are. At present we expect to use the medium sized room in the Quaker Meeting House but if there is a greater number, we can change over to the large room.

  • TOMORROW - Invitation to A Truly Exciting and Inspiring View of our Future

    Taunton Quaker Meeting House, Bath Place, Taunton

    Hello dear All, Sigrid here. As some of you know already, Robin is going to show the above documentary at our next Cygnus Cafe meeting. The work of two young men who started to read up on climate change and - this time - didn't let it go but went deeper into it. They travelled around the UK filming the projects and locations where people are building already the future we know is coming. The descent into reduced energy use of fossil fuel origin and the start of using other energy sources, of growing our own food, of building sustainable houses with locally sourced materials, with other words, practical transition. They started in our backyard, in Totnes where the Transition movement was able to engage more or less the whole town in these ideas and thus, a new community was built. Totnes is considered to be the first Transition town in England, which is now a worldwide movement; Totnes has its own Transition Tours Guide, Hal Gilmore whose T-shirt tells people that "Totnes - May come with nuts"! Their projects are ermaculture, repairs, and sustainable housing for local people. Their motto is "Don't Agonise, Organise". They travel on to "Landmatters", another project of permaculture application. Their aim is "land-based communal living" creating a deeper connection to the land. Then on to Bristol, visiting the people who are promoting the Bristol pound, an alternative currency which can only be spent in individual businesses in Bristol and therefore stays in the community, as opposed to the £Stg which goes to London and the wider financial system. There are people who are observing this process and are studying whether all these local currencies can be enmeshed with each other for an alternative independent, community based monetary system. Another stop was at the Grub Kitchen in St Davids, Wales where an enterprising couple are educating the public, even WI groups, on eating insects instead of beef and are demonstrating the benefits in their restaurant and their kind of little museum - Entomophagy it's called and apparently T H E way to feed the 9 or 10 billion people on earth by 2050. Of course, Todmorden in Yorkshire is included in this report, the town where plucky local ladies started the trend first of growing food in public spaces for passers- by to help themselves. But not only that, despite falling foul of some local regulations, they improved the relationship with the Police, and even the local drug dealers who gave them their remnants of pots and soil after having grown their marihuana!! The next stop was a village in Cheshire which is about to become carbon-neutral through the initiative of a local couple who realised that most of the community were more than willing to check and reduce their carbon footprint for the sake of their children and future generations. One thing led to another, a very engaged couple moved there because of the project and built their environmentally- friendly house which can literally demonstrate the concept. The ripple effect has been tremendous. A very enlightening film energising the two filmmakers enormously. It seems to me that the energising effect may also have come from the insight that we are not alone, battling away alone. Someone just needs to start the ball rolling. I do hope you will come with friends and family to watch this very worthwhile film. As always, please let me know the numbers. We will in the large room. As always, love and blessings, Robin and Sigrid ------------------------------------------------------- LOCATION: TAUNTON QUAKER MEETING HOUSE, Bath Place, Taunton TA1 4EP Parking in The Crescent Car Park (halfway up The Crescent to left, behind Boots in the High Street) Free Parking on Sundays Entry to the Meeting House from the Car Park direct (go down alleyway at left side of building) Time: Usual time of 2 - 2.30pm till approx. 5pm We have the facility of the kitchen and just need to bring our drinks and any biscuits etc.

  • THE HEART AND SOUL OF CHRISTMAS

    Taunton Quaker Meeting House, Bath Place, Taunton

    The Heart and Soul of Christmas Hello dear All, I hope this is not going to strike panic into your heart as for all of us, time seems to be rushing by quicker the more THE big date approaches. Probably because we are all too busy for our own good, rushing around thinking of all the things we want to accomplish before then and all the presents we feel we need to buy for others. So much so that we often forget about whether or what we may want from this period of Christmas for ourselves. Putting all the panic behind for a moment, Robin and I would like to invite you to our Cygnus December Meeting on the 9th December in the usual meeting room (medium size) at the Quaker Meeting House (details below as usual). And if you are someone who has only recently attended one of our meetings or amazing presentations for the first time, this is especially for you because it is an opportunity to get to know each other better and for us all to share what is important to us in our spirituality in these times. This could be an entirely different way from the usual way we celebrate Christmas at home! This meeting will hopefully also be a quiet respite for all of us where we can perhaps give some thought to where our heart and soul is at this time of year. There are already a lot of people who arrange with their families to not give a lot of presents but rather give to charity instead. The need everywhere in the world is extremely great at present and - for me anyway - I have already asked friends to support an animal charity instead of giving/sending me something. That is my present to the present! We all have so much "stuff" (accumulated especially when you have been in this world for a little while). And I'm sure at a certain stage in life we realise that that is not "where the heart is". Which brings me to the above topic which I would suggest as our Christmas meditation. Heart and Soul, our core, are most important, more in the immediate future than they ever have been as they will be the things that will carry us through the next critical years and beyond. For, apparently, what will rule our beings in the future will be the Heart and its powers and capacities - NOT the mind. According to the Heartmaths website, the heart has its own brain which has a greater, more encompassing power than the brain on its own will ever have. The future will be dictated by the Heart as the compass and the brain as its servant, participating in the Universal Mind. The Heart always knows where it needs to go (if we listen), the brain can easily be led astray. But because Christmas is also about family and community, I feel we should again bring food to share (I will check whether we can use the oven to warm up food) on top of sharing our thoughts and concerns, and, perhaps also some music!? Any suggestions? And perhaps we'll get round to the suggested programme for the first half of 2019 too! Please let me know as usual whether you are able to come, alone, or with a friend. Do take care and stop yourself rushing - it can be dangerous at this time of year.

  • ALCHEMY BOWLS AND LYRAN STAR LANGUAGE

    Taunton Quaker Meeting House, Bath Place, Taunton

    Dear Friends, We're back to our normal third-Sunday-in-the-month pattern for November, and for our topic above we have Madeleine Walker come back to us again to talk about her connection with the constellation of Lyra, the Lyran star lion language codes and how she came to be involved with this subject. You may remember her talk about her connection with animals and their owners last year. Now, to me this is something totally new and I went of course rightaway onto the internet to see what Lyra was about, and found the following: Lyra is a small constellation. It is one of 48 listed by the 2nd century astronomer Ptolemy, and is one of the 88 constellations recognized by the International Astronomical Union (Wikipedia) - And apparently, the constellation of Cygnus is one of the neighbouring ones! The Lyrans are primarily a feline humanoid race with a long history with the earth, in fact apparently the ancestral line of all human races. This star system has been described as the source for the spread of human civilization in the Milky Way galaxy. The Lyrans posses Nordic features and are quite possibly the ‘Elohim’ described in religious traditions both on Earth and around the galaxy. Due to the Lyrans role in the genesis of the human presence in the galaxy, the Lyrans can understandably be argued to have the most detailed understanding of human origins and galactic history. They can be described as the ‘Galactic historians’ for the human species. It can be inferred that the Lyrans help in disseminating the truth about the evolution of human races in the galaxy, and have a deep understanding of galactic human culture and of the ‘human spirit’. The above is from a site on the internet and, the following is what Madeleine said about her contact: "The alchemy bowls deepen the transmissions of the Lyran star lion language codes, that realign and re-empower humans who are star seeds, but have felt disconnected from their star lineage and heritage. When singing the language into the bowls as they are being played, it amplifies the whole experience for the listeners. They are deeply healing beings within the precious metal and gems within the bowls. So it is a very powerfully transformative, but gentle sound bath that the bowls give. I shall be talking about the whole journey as to when I started channelling the star language and the lions that were the facilitators of this. I will also talk about the other instruments and their role that they play in the healing journey that I will share". If you haven't travelled that far out into the universe yet, this is your introduction. And yes, interstellar travel and extraterrestials do exist among other mind- boggling technologies, however at present not for us mere mortals, only for the likes of the US Secret Space Programme which Donald Trump has just admitted last month, that it does exist, ie that the US have a Space Force. However Madeleine's talk will be based on spiritual principles and healing - and for that reason we suggest that you bring a mat, a blanket and cushion to relax into when you listen to the "singing" which Madeleine will perform while setting off the alchemical bowls. I hear from Robin (who's been to hear her in Glastonbury) that it is deeply relaxing and a very soothing experience. Just one more small thing: We will start a little later than usual (and probably finish a little later than normal), around 2.30pm as we have to wait for a previous group to vacate the large room. So, as always, please let me know whether you can come and whether you are bringing a guest. Sending you love and blessings, Sigrid -----------------------------------------------------

  • LET'S COME TOGETHER AND SHARE

    Taunton Quaker Meeting House, Bath Place, Taunton

    Dear Friends, Sigrid here. After several months of various topics and interesting presentations, we thought it would be a good thing to just have a meeting again where we share what moves us at this point in time. It may be the opportunity to delve into one or other aspect of one of the presentations we've enjoyed recently and discuss further what it means to us, or it may be something altogether different. In these chaotic times, it's also very likely that some of us are beset by problems which may be eased if aired. There may be some others going through the same difficulty. Apart from that, there are also many good news to share, namely new innovations and developments in politics or health, (yes, believe it or not) that may let us hope for changes in the present system. The change of date is due to the fact that another Channelling Event in Stroud with Hazel Newton is taking place on the 21st October and some of the group want to attend that too. It is hoped that the 28th will still be convenient for most of us. If anyone wants to go along to Stroud, please contact Robin or Jenny. In this context, you may have received a reminder from the Meetup site for our meeting on the 21st October. They do that automatically - please disregard it. I will try to cancel some of the announcements which are all mixed up. We'll be back in the medium-sized room for our October meeting. So please, as always, let me know whether you can come. I don't know about you, but I look forward to every meeting and to seeing you all again. In November we may have Madeleine Walker talking to us about her new alchemical singing bowls. A separate invite will go out to you all again.

  • THE TAUNTON CYGNUS COMMUNITY CAFE MEETING - 18 FEBRUARY 2018

    Taunton Quaker Meeting House, Bath Place, Taunton

    • What we'll do LEARN HOW TO HEAL OTHERS - THE POWER OF EIGHT You may remember (if you were there), we mentioned the above topic and book by Lynne McTaggart in our January meeting. And as we have also often asked ourselves, what we can do in the face of what is happening at the moment in our world and personal lives, this seemed like a good way to try out what we could actually effect with our intentions. Certainly Lynne had much to report based on her experiments with groups of 8 people the success of which, apparently, embarrassed her initially as she is an investigative journalist, investigating the science of spirituality; to her, the improvements in physical health of the persons being the focus of the intentions, as well as in those sending the intention, seemed to veer a little into 'woo-woo land' and she also was worried about getting placebo effects. It seems a good idea, especially in view of what we heard last month, ie that some of our members actually do battle with physical conditions and it was their aim to get well this year. Although we will be following Lynne McTaggart's scientifically researched technique, we will obviously not performing a scientific experiment and any benefit perceived is something to be grateful for. So if you are up for it, here is your chance to be the centre of a group healing; the figure 8 is a random figure. The groups can be larger than that. As this is an experiment for us it will probably help if we go by Lynne's instructions on how to "power up" for the exercise, ie - decide on the specific intention (wording) we want to concentrate on, then - hold hands - take a few moments to breathe calmly to concentrate our mind on the intention. - Hold it in mind, then - let it sink down into our hearts and activate the heart's energy field for this purpose. - Hold this calm, focussed, energized and heartfelt state for approx. 10 minutes while sending out our intention. - All the while imagining/seeing in your mind's eye and in your heart the results of what we are intending, as already happened. According to Lynne's observations, what many experience is that they are able to enter into the Quantum Mind/Heart of which we are all part and, for some people this has a really palpable effect and can demonstrate that we are not separate from each other. The book is available on Cygnus by the way, at the cheapest price I saw on the net. And according to Spirit, we need to simply invite more men to get more to attend our kind of meetings. SO, ANY MEN READING THIS, THIS IS A SPECIAL INVITATION TO YOU TO JOIN US ON THE 18TH FEBRUARY (AND ANY OTHER DATES TOO!). Who knows what this might lead to! Please all of you, let us know whether you can come. I am sure we'll have quite a good number attending.

  • SOUND THERAPY WITH ELAINE THOMPSON

    Taunton Quaker Meeting House, Bath Place, Taunton

    CYGNUS COMMUNITY CAFE MEETING - 16 SEPTEMBER 2018 - INVITATION SOUND THERAPY WITH ELAINE THOMPSON Hello Everyone, Sigrid here. - As previously advised, we'll have Elaine back with us in September, introducing us to Sound Therapy, the healing method she studied in the US which has shown to have tremendous potential to even influence and heal autoimmune diseases! Elaine has practiced this technology for over 20 years now, has worked and taught in a clinic in Germany where she was even interviewed on German TV (there is a YouTube video about that with English subtitles - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-v7KYgRpys And in general has had a very busy time getting people well again. She will be giving us an introduction and demonstrations of the method, recording samples of a voice, then analysing the frequencies recorded and interpreting what that means for our health. It is a method which is based on the knowledge that every sound we make - even the sounds in our bodies of eating, digesting, swallowing, moving the body, the effect of thoughts on the nervous system and consequent stress reactions, or not - has a frequency and as such can be measured. At its core there is first of all the truth that everything has a vibrational frequency and then, obviously, a frequency picture showing good health and bad health in the various areas and organs of the body. THEN: Through another recording showing the desired frequency picture which Elaine gives to her clients to take home and play, the brain actually retrains the areas in question and thereby restores health to various parts or organs of the body. It is a matter of bringing back balance - and then the body does the rest. It seems quite miraculous - but then again it always was when you consider and remember the words from the Bible: "And God said, let there be light.....and there was light".... Sound frequency again, but to us as children this was a sheer miracle. (Obviously, we still don't quite know how exactly all that happened, although it seems established now that sound can create light!). You may have heard of various sound techniques already which are available on the internet and healing with sound has been around for quite some time now. However, this seems a very specialised way of healing to me, tailored to the actual condition. For example, in the case of a stroke, you feed back the correct sound of the muscles to the dysfunctional muscles - and the brain helps the body to remember and stimulates the right muscle action. There is also a video interview with Elaine on Youtube which gives case histories - and I'm sure we'll be hearing about some of them too - there are some really spectacular ones. It's called "Vibrational Retraining Sound Therapy" and here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBZlIhX-J-I. As this was recorded in 2012 and Elaine talks about so many ways in which this therapy can be used, I expect we'll be hearing about her more recent case studies and applications too. Why this isn't available on the NHS beats me - it certainly would save them some money, seeing that they are at breaking point in so many areas. Whereas elsewhere, money is available to create sound applications that harm people!! Elaine gives courses, day courses as well as longer ones, or therapy sessions in her home in Weston-Super Mare and I recommend to look at her website https://www.soundtherapyuk.co.uk As we have booked the larger Meeting Room at the Friends Meeting House in Taunton, please let me know whether you'll be able to come. As always, bring friends along if you can so that they too can benefit. Sending you as always Love and blessings, Sigrid ----------------------------------------------------- LOCATION: TAUNTON QUAKER MEETING HOUSE, 13 Bath Place, Taunton TA1 4EP We have the facility of the kitchen; we'll still need to bring our drinks and any biscuits/snacks.
