The power of prayers, meditation & blessings

Thich Nhat Hanh – Buddhist Monk, Teacher, Author, Poet & Peace Activist Says:
Dear friends in Japan,
As we contemplate the great number of people who have died in this tragedy, we may feel very strongly that we ourselves, in some part or manner, also have died.
The pain of one part of humankind is the pain of the whole of humankind. And the human species and the planet Earth are one body.
What happens to one part of the body happens to the whole body.

An event such as this reminds us of the impermanent nature of our lives. It helps us remember that what's most important is to love each other, to be there for each other, and to treasure each moment we have that we are alive. This is the best that we can do for those who have died: we can live in such a way that they continue, beautifully, in us.

Here in France and at our practice centers all over the world, our brothers and sisters will continue to chant for you, sending you the energy of peace, healing and protection. Our prayers are with you.
Master Choa Kok Sui also speaks of this oneness in his ‘I AM that I AM’ prayer & meditation
‘I AM one with God
I AM one with all
There is only One’

Plus the power & importance of prayers & blessing in this world because:
‘it is in giving that we receive,
As we sow abundantly we reap abundantly
This is the Divine Law’

You are welcome to join in this Friday 18th March @ 7pm the full moon meditation on Twin Hearts to bless Japan & the world.

Everything happens 'for' us not 'to' us - allow yourself to end your own suffering with four simple questions

The Work of Byron Katie

A experiential workshop of ‘the work of Byron Katie’ facilitated by Fara Curlewis
Date: Sunday 27th March
Time: 9.30 – 1 pm
Venue: the Pranic Healing Centre, 3 Alderson St, Newmarket
Cost: $55

Allow yourself to end your own suffering with four simple questions.
The Work of Byron Katie is a way of identifying and questioning the thoughts that cause all the fear and suffering in the world. Experience the happiness of undoing those thoughts and allow your mind to return to its true, awakened, peaceful, creative nature.

How can this happen?
Be guided through a simple yet powerful process of inquiry called The Work.
The Work has been developed by Byron Katie
By answering four simple questions you find that your stressful beliefs about life, other people or yourself will radically shift. These four questions allow you to end your suffering and start a life of freedom and joy. People who have done The Work faithfully, report life-changing results

Learn to unlearn the fearful stories you have innocently attached yourself to.
Question: Who would you be without your stressful story?
No longer do we need to argue with life or ourselves… we can “love what is” instead.

During the workshops you can:
  • Inquire into issues on health, relationships, work, family, finances & the world
  • Discover & transform unhelpful beliefs
  • Experience practical exercises to challenge habitual & destructive thought patterns to find peace & freedom
  • Discover the simplicity of dissolving your struggle
  • Experience the freedom of you without your story
”they shouldn’t think, say or do that; I need more money; I'm too fat; he/she doesn't appreciate me; the world’s not safe.”
Thoughts like these may constantly run through our minds, fostering fear, anger, struggle, stress, loneliness and depression.
How different would your life be if these thoughts never bothered you again?
