A Course in Miracles

A course in miracles is one of the many ways of self-knowledge or self-realization.

It is a non-dual teaching based on forgiveness, understanding for forgiveness a constant choice of peace instead of conflict in each situation that arises in our daily lives.

What Is Sociocracy and Why Do You Need it?

Sociocracy is both:
A social ideal that values equality and the rights of people to determine the conditions under which they live and work, and
A method of organizing effective, harmonious, and collaborative organizations—businesses, and governments, large and small.

The uniqueness of sociocracy in a democratic society is that it is not just a statement of the values of freedom and equality or the right to self-determination. Sociocracy goes deeper. It is a method of implementation. Unlike democracy, it can … Continue reading

All too often we think of yoga as bendy positions, perfect balance, elongated lines and difficult postures…yet we tend to forget the essential philosophy – to breathe, to connect with our hearts and to bring mind, body and soul together in a moment of pure awareness and mindfulness. Ultimately to achieve that elusive glimpse of ‘enlightenment’ that makes the whole practice worthwhile.

Meditation is key … Continue reading

Sustainability Bingo: A Great Activity for Sustainability Workshops

One of the best ways to help others switch to a sustainable lifestyle is by holding workshops within the community. Workshops have always been effective for the dissemination of information, as well as forming support groups and giving people the chance to get to know others who share their cause.

Sacred Geometry – the language of light

We have put to one side the profound significance of these forms, that hide within them the mysteries of creation of life. Geometry, that we know in everyday use, helps us to define spaces, how to measure the size of plots of land, create maps and define the movement and properties of objects. Ancient Egypt had a deep knowledge of geometry, which they needed to create their impressive structures.

This geometry becomes sacred when we realise that geometry is like a mould that represents the … Continue reading
