Seeds of Hope, Shared Dreams and Courageous Ventures into Healing
By Hanna
Hello to all of you! Wow, this newsletter is shining and overflowing with such alive, powerful and touching articles (I got goosebumps one or twice!). Contributions that fuel this ever-growing hope in my heart and cells, for real change and real living in a truthful, connected, compassionate and respectful way with each other, Mother Earth, and all that holds and sustains us. more>
Inner and Outer Worlds
By Susannah
I’d love to write about something other than how I feel the Trump effect playing in my inner and outer world (and I will, below!), but this feels like such a massive “wake up!” moment that I want to speak about it first. I’m feeling revolutions happening inside as we leave the map of the known world. more>
News, Book Launch and Apprenticeship News
By Ya'Acov
After a beautifully slow beginning to the year with plenty of time at home, I feel that quickening that comes with the Imbolc light (Pagan festival that celebrates the spring). The snow drops and daffodils, brave as any warriors, are pushing through the cold ground to face the last lashings of winter and give us the promise of new life. more>
Give Away in the Cathedral of Schleswig
By Christine
During my journey through the Professional Training, I jumped into surprising depths of the unknown and discovered amazing possibilities of teaching I want to share with you. Within a 4-week project called “Journey of Light“, organized by the Protestant church to celebrate 500 years of Reformation, I applied to offer an event as give away, dedicated to refugee work. more>
An Expert in Everything was once a Beginner – On my first Movement Medicine Offering
By Tamara
I am lucky to say that in my closest circle I have two magnificent friends who are both artists. Although there is a difference in their style, I can proudly say that over the years they became known world wide – as this can be a sign of success in the art world. One of them is a painter and the other a street artist. Their creativity makes my heart jump faster every time I see their new work, but that is definitely not the whole story behind it. more>

First and Foremost I am a Musician – My experience working with Susannah and Ya’Acov
By Phil Berthoud
Preamble: Age 7 – Noddy Holder playing electric guitar and singing “Come on Feel the Noise” on Top of the Pops is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. Age 8 – Legendary Flamenco guitarist Paco Pena, live at Bletchley Leisure Centre. I was told it was guitar and expected something like Noddy Holder. What we witnessed was one man (dressed in black – no top hat, covered in mirrors), one acoustic guitar in a huge gymnasium. I was utterly blown away. more>

She is an extraordinary being and we are glad to introduce you to her here and to a new project that we wish to support. With love, Ya'Acov and Susannah more>

By Rosie and Ben
This is a conversation between Rosie Perks and Ben Yeger.
