Om Mani Padme Hum & the Dragon Kingdom of Bhutan

Walter has recently returned from the remote and mysterious Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan. In this tiny Buddhist nation almost everyone is devoted to the practise of the mantra of “Om Mani Padme Hum,” and believe it brings them good health, luck, enlightenment and peace of mind.

In this talk Walter will discuss the practise and meaning of this mantra, and how we can incorporate it into our own lives. We will also explore the crazy wisdom of their beloved sage Drukpa Kunley, devotion to the Medicine Buddha and some of the other fascinating elements of the spiritual lives of the Bhutanese.

Walter Mason is a creativity teacher, writer, blogger and tour leader.

His first book, “Destination Saigon” was named one of the ten best travel books of 2010 by the Sydney Morning Herald. Walter’s latest book, “Destination Cambodia,” was released to critical acclaim in 2013, both books published by Allen & Unwin.

Walter runs the Universal Heart Book Club with Stephanie Dowrick, a book blog that concentrates on matters of the spirit.

He also appears regularly on radio and podcasts, including ABC Radio 702, The Conversation Arena and Radio Out There. He also writes and reviews for New Dawn, Eremos and Good Reading Magazine.

Walter has studied Buddhism for the past 24 years, and has spent periods of study and retreat at monasteries in Thailand, Taiwan, Cambodia, Hong Kong and Vietnam.

With Rosemary Butterworth

It was a wonderful beginning for the year.  We began 2016 with a record number of people attending our first Academy Meeting.  Thank you so much Nancy Valentine Smith for hosting it.  We were so blessed to have the Great Hall as there were at least 65 of us and we were fitted in with ease and grace.  It is indeed a beautiful setting for our meetings.  The Great Hall was designed by Walter Burley Griffin and based on sacred geometry.  He was an American architect and a landscape architect and was perhaps best know for designing Canberra, Australia’s capital city.

Nancy Valentine Smith is a wonder.  I have never met anyone before with such amazing connections to so many dimensional realities and the abilities to utilise them with you for the highest good.

At one point she explained that we are all holograms in such an easy to understand way that I was able to follow her when she said that we should emerge ourselves into the hologram that had already completed and obtained what we were asking for at that time.  In other words if we felt a lack and were looking for more abundance we should ask to merge with the hologram of ourselves that had that already had that abundance rather than struggle trying to bring it into our present body.  It made such sense. Mother Mary had sometime ago shared with me that there is always a part of us that has completed that task whatever it may be.   Simply be that.  But we forget and need to be reminded.  Thank you so much Nancy.

Nancy lives in Northern NSW and is very busy but we will let you know when she is running workshops in Sydney and if she can be our Presenter again and available for private sessions.

NOTE:  I will be back on Angel Heart Radio with Annette McCoy next Wednesday (10th) at 11.30am or you can listen later by going to archives – I always do a meditation which you might enjoy .  Here is the link

Thought Of The Week

Serendipity is the higher aspect of Synchronicity.

Nancy - offering Nancy Valentine Smith

Serendipity – a situation is considered serendipitous when something unexpected and beneficial is found when seeking something else.

Synchronicity  – a series of events which seem related but have no visible connection.

Affirmation – say daily, feel it, believe it…

“I Am Love, I Am Everywhere.”

HEALTH TIP – Your Home = A Sacred Space.

Resting SpaceIt is very important that we have a place ‘to come home to’ to rest.  What I call a ‘sacred space’.  Where not only the body can be restored but also the soul.  The emphasis this week is on removing clutter, unwanted objects and old clothes.  Everything we have or ‘own’ draws on our energy for maintenance – so why hang onto clothes that are 2 sizes too small hoping that one day they will fit.

So the suggestion today is to take a pad and pen into the room you want to begin in, and make a list of all the objects that you feel could, or should be disposed of.  Also write another column on the page of what needs to be attended to.  At this stage you are only listing, do not move anything out of the room.

Having completed your lists, leave the room, make a cuppa, and sit down and write next to each object that needs to be disposed of where that object could be sent.  Could it be given away to a friend or family member or should it go to charity or put out for the next roadside clean-up which in that case perhaps it could be stored in a pile in the garage?  Next, look at what needs to be attended to and write down, say if it is painting the walls, when the paint could be bought and done.

With everything you dispose of you will notice your energy rise.  When the room is finished, notice how much you enjoy going into that room.

It becomes your sacred space.

Old ‘stuff’ is like hanging onto old thoughts – they don’t serve us anymore.

Lighten the load and move forward!  by Rosemary Butterworth

Community Announcement

mindThe ‘Ascension Wave’
During the energy activations for the now imminent Pole Reversal, the two axis lines within this planet both become ‘energy activated’.  One of these pathways is the ‘Ascension Wave’ – the specific energy pathway which ‘ascends’ and returns to ‘True Source’.
All you have to do for the soul to Ascend, is ‘ride that wave’.
Academie Therapeutae has several web pages of a FREE detailed tutorial to present this final knowledge on the Ascension Wave, the planet’s two axis alignments (pathways) and the existence of the Reflection – the ‘Reflected Reality’ – which has not yet been presented covered as general spiritual knowledge.  *This work came from the lineage of Teachers known to Rumi, which came from the Aegean and Black Sea regions, and passed to the Persian  Mystics.  The teachings went eastwards from Turkey to Persia and onwards to the Himalaya.
Please begin at then continue with ‘Atlantis’.
