I came to listen and it’s been an exquisite connection with so many people. I’ll share from that space with my center, the gift of being here. The ways we connected were beyond my logical brain, I got things I hadn’t anticipated and feel very blessed. I definitely support our planetary family of transformational centers!
I appreciate the wisdom and support I’ve received from so many people, specifically help with reframing issues. I now have practical ways to go back and tackle some of the recurring problems. I feel incredibly nourished by this land, the presence of the nature spirits. I feel full of appreciation, hope and connection, nature was really supporting us this week too.
It’s a chaotic moment launching this place, I’ve been working a lot with very mental issues, archaeology, engineering, very concrete situations. Being here has re-connected me with my heart. It was a bit empty when I arrived, but now my heart feels full, thank you. This is definitely helpful for Le Monastère!

I really didn’t know why I was coming, I just came. I’ve been a one man band making my center financially viable. I’m realising there’s a lot of help and connections available, it’s very inspiring. I’m full of hope, enthusiasm, love, inspiration. I feel great and really glad I came. I felt so welcome here.
I arrived here as an individual and offering the Miracle Choice Game was about personal transformation and inner connection. I was staff in the Findhorn Foundation in the 90s and a Founding Director of Kalikalos in 2008. I feel like I’m opening up from personal transformation to supporting planetary transformation, being more open and out there in the world, supporting managers within centers and being really present with my own transformation can be effective in community. I see how my role is starting to fit in.

I felt very much called to come here. When I get these kind of calls I know to follow it. The email invitation from Centers Gathering literally came out in 3D, I felt it must be important and trusted that. What I got is far beyond whatever I could have imagined. I know you all now, why not before? It’s tremendous to feel that support and know I’m not alone. I offer you my support and my skills. I’m leaving here inspired, with a renewed sense of enthusiasm for Chrysalis and my own transformation.
The Chrysalis Centre
I really thank everyone. This has brought me so much inspiration and filled me with hope for this center, with people that feel like lifelong family. What I’ve learnt, seen and observed, these nuggets can be planted in fertile ground. I was considering stepping back, letting go. I can do that and I can gather seeds. This is a special place and interesting things will happen here in future.
As a teacher of English literature, one of my favourite plays is The Tempest by Shakespeare. This week has been like that story – we were blown in by a storm whipped up by an alchemist (Prospero) and woke up feeling washed up on a rainy day to gather around the fire and connect. In this week of transformation we individually reconfigured into a harmonious group, aligned with a sense of shared vision and purpose. As Miranda ( whose name means miracle) said at the end in wonderment ‘ oh brave new world , that hath such people in it!’ ‘Brave new world ‘became the title of Aldous Huxley’s book, and he was one of that group that started Esalen, a sister centre. I sense there is a thread of magic that has been weaving throughout history and that these threads have come together as we weave our planetary family connections into a glowing tapestry, a brave new world indeed!
