UPDATE: We had a great Celebration and this video gives depth to our activities at the Park. It is a great testimony of these past ten years. We are grateful to all who had contribute over the years to this wonderful project.


ten_year_annivThese past 10 years have seen what was just an idea in the Andes Mountains turn into over 40 Parks of Study and Reflection all over the world.

Saturday, June 18th, 2016 we’re going to celebrate the 10 years that our Park in California has transformed from a dream into reality. We’re inviting anyone who would like a tour of the Park to come at noon Saturday followed by a potluck* and BBQ lunch. A presentation by Chilean author Dario Ergas on his investigation: Zarathustra: Unity, Duality and Freedom will also take place sometime during the event.

We’ll conclude the day together with an open mic so inspired artists please come through and share your craft!

See you at the Park!

Seminar on Aphorisms and Direction

Saturday morning 6 friends from the communities of the Message in San Francisco and Oakland met in Parks of Study and Reflection Red Bluff Park to carry out the seminar on Aphorisms and Direction from the Manual for Messengers. Before we started the seminar we took a moment to reflect on why we had made the pilgrimage and what we hoped for in our time there. We found that although each of us superficially were in different life situations, each person’s reasons for coming resonated with the group and we felt a common thread, a common search connecting every testimony.

The rest of the day was spent clarifying that search. Each one of us took turns guiding reflections where we were asked about our most profound Aspirations in life and to see them coming to fruition. We had time to meditate on this theme in solitude, document our experiences and comprehensions in our journals, and interchange in small groups. The second part of the seminar we went creating an Aphorism (a phrase or image) that could bring us back to the Direction in life we desire and strengthen it. We closed the seminar with a ceremony of the Service on the deck outside the Center of Work and then headed to the Sacramento River just before sunset.

A fountain begins

Dear Friends,

Yesterday, Saturday April 25, with the help of 3 students from the Concrete Industry Management Department of Chico State University, along with their teacher, Tim H.– the beginning of a fountain for Red Bluff Park took place!  Please check out our short video (created by Ken) above which was yesterday’s  creation of the “pad” or concrete circular foundation that will support the fountain

A big thank you to everyone involved in helping with this first stage of our fountain—with your hard work, enthusiasm, donations and support!  We are still gladly accepting donations to finish the project!  Hopefully the fountain will be complete by mid-summer

Big hug to all,  Janet
