Dec. 16, Red Bluff Park of Study & Reflection

Saturday morning, the Park green and beautiful in the rain, around fifteen of us gathered in the Center of Work for our usual monthly gathering. 

Two good friends from Berlin on Skype joined us via Skype as we began the day with the work with the Force and the Wellbeing, asking for friends and loved ones who are in need of support. 

Then we plunged into our theme, the Divine Feminine and its role in human history up to the present day and onward, exploring how we can strengthen the benign influence of feminine values such as caring and compassion in our world, now and into the future. 

Ken D. started things off with a powerpoint presentation about the millions of years of human development until the present day. Then we went into an in-depth study “The Rupture,” a work by Karen R. inspired by a letter from Silo from 2004. For about two hours we explored this fascinating and provocative theme, until, exhausted by the rigors of the discussion, we were forced to take a break for a sumptuous lunch.

When we reconvened, we devoted the afternoon to working with clay, making small sculptures that expressed our personal experience of the Divine Feminine. This turned out to be a surprisingly peaceful experience, and we all fell into silence as we let go of our worries about producing the perfect work of art, and just let the clay speak through our hands.

We ended the day by watching a video on the Neanderthal and their relationship to our homo erectus ancestors. When we ended the weekend, each of us carried the question of the Divine Feminine away with us, and we will continue to explore this essential theme in our everyday lives. 

We invite everyone who resonates with this theme to join us at the Park this coming January 19, when we will pit fire our clay sculptures and continue exploring this profound theme. This is an opportunity for all of us, no matter what our gender, to learn to let the Divine Feminine express itself within and among us freely, in balance with our masculine strengths. As we continue this work together, we are making a heartfelt contribution to our loved ones, our community, and our world toward the ongoing evolution of a complete human being full of peace, force, and joy.

Sacred Feminine Workshop

Last weekend I participated in the workshop on the Rupture and wanted to share some photos, a description of the workshop, and the corrected English PDF of ‘The Rupture’

Description: On Saturday November 17th 2018 some friends from the communities of Silo’s Message at the Eastlake Hall in Oakland traveled to Parks of Study and Red Bluff to join Paul Tooby from the Red Bluff community of the Message for a workshop exploring the Sacred Feminine. We used Karen Rohn’s contribution ‘The Rupture’ to guide our study and interchange.
We started the workshop with a ceremony of Laying on of Hands followed by unorganized individual study, reflection, and interchange about ‘The Rupture.’ After lunch we came together as a group to work with clay forming our own expressions of the Sacred Feminine. We left the Park very inspired and the next day before returning home we took the time to enjoy a beautiful Autumn morning by the Sacramento River.

Monthly Gathering – June 2017

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

Monthly Gathering – March 2017

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.
