This summer I participated in a money and consciousness course, Financial Freedom, led by Karen McAllister, Mindful Money Coach and co-founder of Clear Sky Retreat Center in B.C. Canada. Together with others, like me, who work in the Findhorn Foundation (a spiritual community that holds transformational learning experiences for participants) and co-workers from similar centers around the world, we explored something I’ve always found somewhat challenging: money, and in particular money in relationship to spirituality.

A Webinar Series from The Haven
Date: September 16, 2019 | 6:30 – 8:00pm PST
In these free webinars, The Haven faculty will discuss such topics as tapping into broader awareness of consciousness in everyday life, the neurobiology of relational consciousness, communication and everyday relating as pathways to higher consciousness, and the incredible value of intention and presence.
At the Gathering last year, hosted by Omega Institute in upstate New York, we were delighted to welcome Edmund and Isabelle Colville from West Lexham in Norfolk. West Lexham is a family run business and three generations of the Colville family live on site. The project was conceived as a way to create a future and life for the farm buildings which history had caste aside. But also as a way that the generations might grow up and grow old together in a sustainable way, based on the principles of community and social enterprise, co-creating a place for education, relaxation and celebration.
Swami Durga Das, CEO of Kashi Ashram in Florida, attended his first Centers Gathering in 2017. Inspired by the people he met, the following year their Groups Manager, Swami Babarama, attended the Gathering as well. “The first year it was hard to convince my community that attending the Gathering in Hawaii was actually work! The second year with two of us attending it was easier to share the value with everyone at home,” said Durga Das.
Earlier this year, I felt called to join the month long Kashi Immersion, experiencing daily life in the ashram, living in a community house with long term Kashi residents, joining daily yoga classes and evening satsang. Kashi describes itself as an “Oasis for every heart” and embraces each visitor with love and care, deeply grounded in over 40 years of female spiritual lineage. With the strong connection with HCN, Kashi is the ideal place for our first regional gathering in south-eastern USA. [Read more…]

Why a Great Transition – and a Great Transition Initiative
The Great Transition Initiative is an online forum of ideas and an international network for the critical exploration of concepts, strategies, and visions for a transition to a future of enriched lives, human solidarity, and a resilient biosphere. By enhancing scholarly discourse and public awareness of possibilities arising from converging social, economic, and environmental crises, and by fostering a broad network of thinkers and doers, it aims to contribute to a new praxis for global transformation.

“Can I invite another center to join us for the Gathering at Hollyhock?” asked Swami Dhumavati while I was at Kashi Ashram earlier this year. “Absolutely!” I replied, always curious to discover new places. “I met Swami Lalitananda last November when we attended the Parliament of World Religions in Toronto,” she continued. “She’s from Yasodhara Ashram in B.C. Canada.” The Parliament had a powerful theme and these two ashrams were clearly aligned. Several lineage centers joined the Gathering and later formed a strong focus group to support each other in their similarities and challenges. [Read more…]
