From Insight to Vipassana


Learn how to see. (Sleepy Moose)

From December 27th to January 7th one hundred of us were observing noble silence (complete silence with no physical contact with others, not even eye contact!; and of course no contact to the outside world) while practising meditation for the majority of each day while having the daily food consumption (vegetarian) finished by noon, with the exception of a couple of fruit and a cup of lemon tea at 5pm.

The Power of Music (Henry Wakes Up!)


The 18th of April saw the world premiere of “Alive Inside”. A new documentary which reveals the power of music over the human psyche.

This particular clip features the heartwarming and touching story of Henry, an alzheimers patient who, normally assuming a vegetative state, awakens and comes to life upon hearing music from the days of his youth.

This really is an amazing and inspiring video. We look forward to the release of Alive Inside, and I’m sure you will too. The mysteries of life are great and many, and the greatest voyage has yet to be undertaken, where no one has gone before – the journey within You.
