Spring Zoom Series

Dear Friends,

Many greetings from the valley of Eftalou on Lesvos, where Spring is in full bloom with flowers and buds unfolding by the day!

Sun, showers, light wind and sometimes a storm clear the air … leaving hope and gratitude for the year ahead.

I trust you are all in good health and finding harmony within your lives.

We shall be back soon in the Zoom studio for more exciting explorations and unwinding….this time on Tuesdays and Sundays, April 14 - 30.

There is no end to the layers of self-defense, anxiety, fear and holding that we can release from our bodies, allowing space and freedom to breathe more fully. We meet ourselves then fully in the present …how wonderful is that!! Let’s continue together on this journey with awareness on how form and spirit, body and emotion weave together for truth, peace and harmony.

Looking forward to this practice with you!

Loving Kindness (Zoom Series)

Dear friends,

I hope you enjoyed a beautiful Summer and are feeling ready to explore more openings and unwinding in our up-coming November Zoom sessions? Like a snail slowly emerging from its shell we shall find ways to meet ourselves in many new places……creating space, warmth and presence.

Kindness is not always soft and cosy!

It asks us to meet resistance in the deepest places of our body and soul …..slowly, with patience and full attention. A release comes in its own time if what has been hiding in fear and holding tight for maybe even a lifetime feels surrounded by loving kindness and trusts us enough to finally let go.

Looking forward to this beautiful practice with you all very soon.

Peace and love,

Religions, beliefs and facts

Many years ago when I was a guest of the Indian ambassador in den Haag, the Netherlands, she told me that Jesus was seen as one of their holy saints! And then she added : “ But please Mr van Kooten, do away with your church”! And I still remember her, a strong older woman, the coffee after a rich dinner and this discussion we had as if it happened yesterday evening…

Religious feeling is a gift and one of the many gifts we received, just like like our birth onto this earth.
A gift indeed and all wrapped up into our being. Are we willing to unpack and unravel our body which holds it all together?
I know that we like the easy life if we can choose and often lack this curiosity to sit and ponder in order to unwrap all the accepted images and stories that embodied these deep feelings that stirred formlessly within us.
Jesus became one of these many coat hangers for me and later Paramhansa Yogananda and then Maharishi Mahesh Yogi…
Now today I see in the struggle for independence a new battle of many religions: Jewish, Islamic , Christian, all being stirred up by the Zionistic approach to the Jewish belief of being the chosen children of Jehovah…as they are settling in Palestine .but everyone is “the chosen one” in their own existence. Just by the fact that the Creator puts on many faces in being the creative energy which brings about all that dwells on earth and in the universe off which we are only a small part! Can we except that being small does not mean that you can’t feel great? The deeper we dive into our seemingly endless being, the closer we get to this essential Oneness: giving us a self-respect we equally find in everything else we meet in this mysterious life.
And no book or past experiences of other great beings can bring you this connection with your deepest non-self, the formless Cosmic Egg that gives while it maintains and takes back whatever it created.
Never repeating and always changing, but never promises future events…..

“que será será, what will be will be”, my mother said to me….

We are in the Age of Aquarius

And the philosophy shifts to unity, but NOT into One World Government, but into excepting each other’s personal freedom of expression and dreams and beliefs.
