On July 15th, we shared a day of spiritual inspiration, reflecting and interchanging about the golden rule of treating others as we want to be treated, love and compassion and the gift of the asking. We also shared a nice ceremony of wellbeing for some friends that are facing difficulties. Later at night, we burned askings and messages of hope that we’ve already left on the monolith; that was a really calm and beautiful moment. At the end of the day we watched the film ‘Silo, a spiritual path’ and had a barbecue.
We had a nice and quiet ceremony of the Office inside the Center of Work followed by a beautiful ceremony of well being at the fountain. We asked for Paul and Janet.
Later we had a reading and an interchange on a conversation Silo had with E. Nassar in 1993 about the characteristics of a pre-religious stage. Quite an interesting reading.
We also have a visitor from the Czech Republic, Jan Tamas and in the early evening some of us went to downtown Red Bluff to pass invitations to our Day of Inspiration to be held at the Park next Month.
Here are some photos of the weekend
After a perfect breakfast prepared by our chef Ken we had a Wellbeing ceremony with Jon and Silvia in London. We asked for Silvia well being and we did the ceremony using facetime so it was an interactive event with much affection among us all. We discussed some issues related to the Park, mainly maintenance, activities and projects. We did a Service ceremony, had lunch and study a great material from 2003. Around 18 people participated in the gathering. Later on we talked around a fire and have dinner.
We got together for our monthly gathering at the Park with around 17 people. We started the day with a great breakfast prepared by Ken Dickinson and then we had a Service Ceremony. We cleaned the area of the wood kiln, got rid of the metal wood stove and fix the lights to the entrance of the main building. And for the rest of the time we divided into testing the fountain with real water, studying a material on mental suffering and finalizing the day with a Ceremony of wellbeing around the fountain. A great day and a wonderful experience! Thanks to all who made it such a special day.
UPDATE: We had a great Celebration and we are grateful to all who had contribute over the years to this wonderful project. Bellow some pictures of the event
These 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!

Above, the words of Thelma who was visiting the Park and with 11 friends, we had such a good time talking, sharing a lunch, doing a well being ceremony and studying the latest contribution from Eduardo Gozalo about his commentaries on the Inner Look.
We had a very nice and inspirational time at the Park for the Spring Seasonal. We have representatives from 7 different countries and we enjoyed each other company, food and ceremonies. We even had the time to interchange about experiences related to Silo’s response to David Roberts letter a while ago. Another great day!
