hi friends – our prayers and songs go out to our brothers and sisters in tibet in these troubled times – and to the chinese people too, that together we will find a peaceful solution to such a seemingly unjust conflict.
om tare tuttare ture swaha
since our last post we facilitated the ecstatic chant retreat at lake ainsworth in byron bay
...which, as in previous years was an intimate gathering of love, light and laughter.
here’s a picture from our ‘open’ afternoon when a few friends joined us.
playing piano is rob stevenson who is leading satsang groups in brisbane. check his myspace site for details:http://www.myspace.com/stevensonrob>, yeshe on percussion who makes some great music and playing ney and harmonium is avishai from the israeli world music ensemble, sheva. we had quite a party.
after the retreat we flew to fiji to play for the inauguration of the ‘oneness temple’ in anthony robbins’ awesome savusavu resort.
we didn’t have such a bad time there either.
we met up with donny and jackie epstein
...and took some great sessions from the maestro.
donny created the network chiropractic system, among other things...here he is working his magic on me.
it wasn’t all play – as you can see we put in some hard graft in the music dept...
..which led to some serious recovery time on the beach.
