Spring

Dear Friends and Students

Greetings from Eftalou where Spring has spread a carpet of flowers across the valley and birds are busy finishing their nests while the people of Molivos are painting and preparing their homes and shops for the Summer!

As many of you know this winter for us was a time to catch up on hospital life! First me with surgery on my leg veins and then Victor for Prostate cancer. In all we made three visits back and forth to Munich, where were fortunate to have excellent care, wonderful doctors and a place to stay as well.
Victor is recovering well and plans to visit his children and their families in April and I shall be in San Francisco to teach the Pre-conference Workshop on April 12th/13th and give a presentation class on Sunday morning of the Conference April 20th.
I am not ...as originally planned ...giving the Key Note on Friday evening. CIIS and the organiser Mariana Caplan decided instead to have a renowned Academic for the evening presentation.

I shall follow this with a short meditation.

I am sure it will be a wonderful event with many experts offering their experience and we shall see how entwined and important are Soma and Psyche are in our lives.

I am so looking forward to seeing new and old friends again and hear that several of you have already signed up for the weekend workshop.

here is the latest arrival on our land in Eftalou!

With love and appreciation
Angela

Understanding Java Batik

There is a reality that lives on the nerve and cellular level.
Now that I am getting more aware of how nerves ,after being cut, slowly
grow, using life's energy to restore pathways, over-bridging the damaged spaces.
A batik design comes to mind, where flowers , fruits, rivers and rocks all share the
same energy. A level of deep connection.

Nature has a plan and a purpose, just be there and watch

While I was lying in the hospital in Munich, after the Doctor successfully removed my prostate,
I watched the trees under the spring sun, day by day. I watched the pigeon, the crow, waiting and receiving,
in their ways not very different from the trees they visited. And me, I was waiting too as nature was moving the Spring Energy from deep within....erasing and opening up my independence into a more complete world.

A bucket full of sunshine

It has been a warm "summer like" spring and we had little rain so far.
Some fell yesterday and nature rejoices . It feels like sunshine to the
trees and grasses . To-day, the 24th of February, it is cloudy again,
but dry. Nature is happy and flowers are coming out everywhere.
