Rereading my last blog entry I wrote about 3 weeks ago « At Last »…I was quite moved…
I wrote this blog a few days after arriving from Thimphu Bhutan, in Tinh Truc Gia, The Peaceful
Bamboo Family, Hue Vietnam.
We had very very important events to prepare, actually we were preparing them since 2 years or more really, and here I wrote about « doing nothing »…. »not running anymore »
A few blogs before « one step at a time » I also spoke about letting go…of changing pace…of not getting involved « as usual »…and yes I think it did work out fine,…differently
than I imagined though (it is really helpful to write a diary! I do recomend it to you!)
This really seems to be « my theme» at the moment…and yet there is still lots to do, even new very important projects are
on their way here in Bhutan and in Vietnam and I know there are some elements of my life and work I really should not let go as I feel responsible and I, with the Eurasia team have taken a commitment of love and friendship…and yet a change of pace Is
Well, what really happened after my last blog entry was that there really was lots to do !
Luckily Tho arrived ! Luckily the TTG/Eurasia team really are GREAT!
First we had the yearly evaluations of
the direction board of Tinh Truc Gia. As usual these evaluations were deeply authentic and deeply transformative moments. A highlight of my time in TTG/Eurasia work this time! I spoke about the need to find out where I am most needed and where to let go and
to identify the fields where I need help...actually each one of us needs help…A blessing to be able to work in a team in which we can share our deepest aspirations and in which our deepest being and potential are adressed. Through these evaluations
we offer each other a « shining light » helping each other to transform and to grow….together !
I really do love the Direction board in Tinh Truc Gia ! We really are a Peaceful Bamboo Family !
Then the very special events started
We had the spritual ceremony of the inauguration of the New teahouse, the new workshops etc…A wonderful ceremony at 6h in the morning with walking meditation with the whole community through
the whole compound of TTG. A blessing!
Then the Eurasia Festival organized by the City ! Many official speaches, TV and many many smiling faces of all the children, teachers and colleagues with whom Eurasia has worked over the past
15 years ! It was really a moment of celebration and JOY !
Our family arrived this day ! Also a blessing! So great to have them here ! What a wonderful family ! I was so happy my grandchildren and daughter
and son in law could at last be in TTG ! I could also feel …the next generation is ready !They really felt "at home" in TTG
Then we had 2 days training course and it was mainly our daughter and Khanh who « carried » this training course for special teachers on the theme of « early intervention ».
I actually babysitted my granddaughter
during these 2 days…just enjoying TTG, the little waterponds, the many nice shady walks through TTG…the teahouse with its delicious juices..doing nothing really
Then came the BIG opening day. May be 180 guests, many many VIP’s , many flowers speaches, TV again…then in the evening a big party for the opening of the new teahouse with wonderful music, delicious
juices , many many people, family, friends, may be 150 or more…
And then I really I had nothing to do…as I got sick with 40° of fever from this day on and during the next 5 days !
So you see there is a coherence…My
body helped me to step back…TO LET OTHERS DO…to take time to listen, to take care…I was in bed for 5 days really…we had another workshop during 5 days after the opening and I was literally « out »…nothing
to do…just healing, loving, supporting, and listening to the sounds of life…. from my room…
Yes there is a transformation going on !
A FB friend wrote that high fever can be a blessing, a purification moment,
and yes I agree…that is how I felt…something is helping me to transform my habit energy and is helping me to re-shift my energy and attention to what is most needed from me…and I guess this is loving and supporting !
you all TTG/Eurasia team for your great work! your wonderful commitment and all of you dear friends for your loving kindness and your support!
