Everything is unfolding (Wu Wei)
The last few weeks there have been some developments and I feel more and more the impulse and the need to set up something of a spiritual center and/or create spiritual groups. My starting point is what I have called
dialogical universal Spirituality
(“Examine all things and keep that which is good.” -1 Thessalonians 5).
The group is the guru
It’s not about THE way, because every person is different. I merely want to be a signpost, a facilitator.
I want to talk to people from a non-dogmatic approach.
Over the years I have become familiar with many approaches and masters. Having worked as a school teacher myself for over 30 years, I know that I have the skills to work with groups. My own spiritual path will be the guideline, as well as the questions/needs of the group members: I have discovered many pitfalls, experienced a lot of confusion and “misinterpretations”. It’s about keeping each other alert from a critical, but positive, ego-less attitude: we are each other’s gurus.
“That is the challenge of a spiritual teacher:
not to take on board the projections of specialness people have.
This is especially dangerous for spiritual teachers who only have contact with disciples or followers.“

Together with my old friend Jos Janssen (Josananda) and Pia Brand we are looking into how and where we can do this.
During these meetings or retreats there will be meditation, questions and answers, joint exercises and everything that arises on the spot (actually: here and now (–: ).
Finally, there will of course be a joint meditative concert by Pia, Jos(ananda) and me.
