Thu 17 July: Healing - Ensuring a Return on Your Investment!

Begin of a NEW healing course:
REAL (i.e. sustainable) HEALING requires an investment of time and effort. It often also involves re-experiencing old pain and facing the challenge of implementing new ways of operating in the world.

There are of course benefits in the form of improved well-being, wholeness, vitality and self-confidence. On the other hand we all have crowded lives and there are many calls on our time and money - no wonder that many people choose to stay stuck in their old familiar dysfunctional patterns!

Having a specific reason to heal will greatly empower our choice of entering a healing process. What could be a specific objective of your own healing journey?....
a) an abandoned (impossible) dream from the past which somehow just won't "lie down" in our mind
b) a dream or plan for our future which is "blocked" or "stuck"
c) a situation or relationship which is causing us distress
d) symptoms of mental or physical ill-health
e) addictions we would like to bring under control, such as alcohol, smoking, coffee, sugar, drugs, medications or high-fat foodstuffs.
f) enhanced self-development or self-actualisation - becoming more of the person you would like to be!

Workshop 1 of the "Healer Development" course at the Michaelhouse Centre asks participants come "armed" with one or more ways in which you would like to change your life or change some aspect of yourself.

You will be guided in how to do a "process" on your goal's) that will first refine and clarify them, then raise the quality and energy of your motivation to heal your life and thereby increase your fulfilment.

Once we have set our direction and "turbo-charged" it, we will get to work on clearing our blocks and finding our "stepping stones" to a bigger experience of ourselves and our world.

Workshop 1 is on this Thursday evening, July 17th. 7.30-9.30 at the Michaelhouse Centre. Cost of the workshop is £25, or £120 for the full course of 6 workshops. More information at or email Mike at or telephone him at: 01954-780695.

Sun 9 Nov'03: Harmonic Concordance - international "PROJECT OM" at 1:29AM

At 1:29AM (British time) on Sunday morning November 9, 2003, a geometrically perfect six sided (Star of David) configuration will appear in the sky, linking and balancing the energies of six astrological bodies; the Sun, Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, Chiron and the Moon.

Wed 26 Nov: Return to the Land of your Soul - Songs of Universal Peace with Ralph, 8pm

[4th Wednesday each month] The human voice as the most perfect instrument provides the possibility to connect with our soul and with God. This is why in many faith traditions the use of the voice plays an essential part. It resonates with the chakra system, activates the flow of subtle energies, upliftis the mood, balances mind and aura and can lead to a state of blissful joy. The deeper breathing activates and rejuvenates the body.

Chanting chooses sacred phrases or mantras from various traditions. They are sung repeatedly for minutes or hours and can create a strong feeling of community and connectedness.

Chanting can lead to mystic experiences beyond understanding. It helps to bring body mind and soul into balance and is very beneficial in our mind dominated society, especially for intellectuals.

We will be sharing heart centred chants from various traditions, some simple, some with harmonies (like Taizé).
Please bring a drink and an open heart, candles or other items for the center of our circle.

VENUE: Ralph's home, 25 Hills Avenue (off Hills Rd.), Cambridge.

Sat 29 Nov: Buy Nothing Day

This is an event that opposes (in a very friendly, creative way) consumerism and over consumption, especially over the Christmas period. We will be in the market square, making cards, presents and a variety of exciting objects from recycled materials. Last year a banner was also made by children stating what they would like to DO for Christmas, rather than HAVE, something similar will be made this year. Hoping to target a wide age group - children, young people, adults. Free fair trade tea and coffee will also be be given out. It is a very fun, as well as constructive, event.

Organised by CAMBRIDGE PEOPLE & PLANET (University Soc.) -

A very quiet and extraordinary spiritual film. Dialogues go straight to the essentials. Beautiful landscapes in Russia and Afghanistan and the desert. Gurdjeff's search for hidden knowledge and his journey as a seeker to meet the mystics. In the end we see sacred mystic dancers. 108 minutes.

Mon 22 Dec.: "Ode to Joy and Freedom - The Fall of the Berlin Wall", video, 8pm

This moving documentation about the rise & fall of the German wall in 1990 will be shown again on request. A token of history you will never forget. The beginning and end of the infamous cold war Berlin wall. Walls tumbling down - what a powerful symbolism! "The Wall" was much more than bricks and mortar; its fall was like a miracle - with an overwhelming emotional outburst. No love or any other made up story - original recordings commented in English with music.
One hour video documentation, made in Germany.
Cost: donation. Organized by Rainbow Network Cambridge (contact Ralph)
VENUE: "Bharat Bhavan" (Old Library), 119 Mill Road / railway bridge, Cambridge.
