Workshops with Victoria Ritchie

Monday, October 19th: 7- 10pm : Mini Workshop :The Cream and Core of Eckhart Tolle’s teaching with Victoria Ritchie; Astrologer and Eckhart Tolle’s spiritual editorVictoria Ritchie-new photo

Victoria will present all the basics of Eckhart Tolle’s teachings in a simple, easy-to-understand format.  Spiritual Enlightenment is the aim of Eckhart’s teachings and Victoria will explore and distill the key means for finding this awakening in your own life. 

 •             Do you want more presence and more peace in your life –  not to mention Happiness? 

•             Would you like to be less taken over by your monkey mind that can’t stop its constant inner chatter?

•             Would you like less suffering and less contraction?

•             Would you like to find your Life Purpose and know how to do that?

•             Do you realise that you are far more than the roles that you play in life?        

•             Can you recognise your Painbody when it arises?         

•             Can you accept what happens to you, no matter what?

This will be a very full evening that offers you a real way to begin seriously waking up from your egoic coma.  It will happen sooner or later, and NOW couldn’t be a better time for that.

Victoria Ritchie has been a close and direct student of Eckhart Tolle’s since 2000.  She has shared his work through a local group in San Francisco and in seminars worldwide.  Victoria also works with Eckhart in an editorial role.  In addition she is an international astrologer.  Victoria comes to the Cote d’Azur on a regular basis and while there offers a limited number of astrology readings as well as seminars on the subject of Eckhart Tolle, Buddhist Mindfulness Meditation, Western Non-Duality Teachers as well as Astrology.

We will break for a pot luck dinner.

Please bring a plate of food to share.

Cost : only €30

Lipmann’s residence, 5, Rue des Ponchettes, Nice.

Victoria is also available for readings.



Monday ,November 2nd : 7-9pm: Mini Workshop with Victoria Ritchie Echkart Tolle’s spiritual editor at Stardeck, StarsnBars, Monaco.


Do you unknowingly play roles in your life?  And lose who you truly are as that happens?

When you interact with different people, does your speech, attitude or behaviour change depending on who you are talking to?

Do you identify with the job you do in the world and think that is who you are?

Do you relate to others according to your perception of their social role? 

If you lose your job, or if your children grow up and move on, or lose any other kind of role you’ve been playing in the world, do you feel as though you no longer exist?

Do you feel superior or inferior to anyone?

Playing roles is a way of defining yourself through thought and thus a way of going unconscious.  The ego needs roles. 

As Eckhart Tolle says, ‘When you are completely identified with a role. you confuse a pattern of behaviour with who you are, and you take yourself very seriously.”  This is a way of unknowingly limiting yourself.

Victoria Ritchie will help us look at the unexamined roles we play in our life and how we can better observe this and free ourselves from this limitation.  As Eckhart says, role playing is one of the many faces of the Ego.    This is a very important and freeing subject to investigate, observe and work on.

Cost: Only €30

Introductory Inspirational Evening on Non-Duality

Due to popular demand Victoria Ritchie-Eckhart Tolle’s spiritual editor has agreed to give an Introductory Inspirational Evening on Non-Duality .


A great awakening is now taking place on the planet — it is a major evolutionary shift occurring for a quickly growing number of people. Eckhart Tolle’s books, THE POWER OF NOW and A NEW EARTH, have been beacons for a new kind of spiritual understanding and living, presented in a modern idiom. But along with Eckhart there are a growing number of inspiring western spiritual teachers who are offering the teachings of non- duality. These teachers have awakened to their true nature and they offer this possibility to everyone. These are radical teachings that break up all the old conditioning.


Victoria Ritchie, who has studied and practiced Non Duality for the last 14 years, will present an introductory evening on this subject. She will introduce the main teachers as well as the principal teachings of Non-Duality. Certain truths and perspectives are common to all the teachers:


•             You are already awake

•             Everything comes and goes in your life, but you remain as clear, unchanging

•             presence.

•             There is just right here, right now. Only this.

•             Problems exist in the realm of thought only.

•             There is nothing to seek.

•             The mind and what appears in thought loses its importance.

•             The separate self who we think we are is an illusion.

•             Accept whatever is arising in this moment.


Victoria Ritchie, M.A. lives in California where she is a spiritual/astrological counselor as well as an editor of spiritual books. She has assisted Eckhart Tolle in an editorial role and has also facilitated an ongoing Eckhart Tolle groups in San Francisco. Victoria has taught seminars on Eckhart’s work in Scandinavia France and the USA. She has been a close personal student of Eckhart’s as well as a student of Adyashanti.

All welcome to join us Wednesday 11th , February at 7.30pm  for an inspirational one hour talk on Shamanism and its modern relevance in contemporary culture by experienced Shaman Yanu Zsigo, followed by a pot luck dinner.

Please bring a plate of food to share.


Yanu will give a talk on the fundamental philosophy and principles of ‘ Shamanism ‘, including its relevance in contemporary culture today.

Shamanism encompasses the premise that shamans are intermediaries or messengers between the human and spirit worlds. They treat ailments and imbalances through ecstatic techniques designed to heal the soul, alleviating these traumas restoring the physical body of the individual to balance and wholeness.

Another integral aspect is communion with the Spirit world to obtain solutions to problems afflicting the community and environment, not only healing the people but bringing them into greater harmony and alignment with the natural world around them, believing that all things are imbued with soul, including, rocks, plants, animals and elements, including earth, air, fire and water etc.

The talk will include explanation of the Shamanic map, including, the origin story of Eagle Shaman, the World Tree, Upper, middle and lower worlds, Spirit helpers and shamanic tools ie, drum, rattles etc.

Y. Zsigo is a trained Shaman, Espiritista and folk magician who acts as an intermediary between the human and spirit worlds. He treats ailments/illness etc using specific techniques to heal the soul and bring about balance. He operates primarily within the spiritual realms, communing with Allies and ancestors alike, which in turn help in the restoration of balance resulting in the elimination of the ailment, problem.

He has travelled extensively training and working with Shamans, Magickians, Espiritistas and Healers from all over the world.

Yoga-thon and World Peace Meditation

A big thank you to everyone who participated in the joint fund raising event for an orphanage project in Preeti, Nepal at Future Form on December 21st.

The day commenced with a Yogathon with Stephanie Joyce who encouraged and kept everyone enthused during the 108 sun salutations .

Yanu gave us a great history about  Winter solstice celebration . He dowsed us with sage as we entered the room so engaged us from the start.

He played a  drum and shaker during the ceremony and also chanted.

We then finished with a Beverley Holt giving a Global Reiki candle lit meditation for World Peace .

Everyone lit their own candle setting the intention for World Peace , knowing that many people around the planet were doing exactly the same thing.

‘When we meet as a collective, we join in Sanctuary’ Phyllis Furumoto.

It was a lovely evening with many people having wonderful “awakening”  and heart opening  experiences.

Yoga-Thon and World Peace Meditation

On Sunday December 21st, Riviera Reiki and Future Form would like to invite you for our Xmas Celebration. Join us for some Xmas Cheer plus we have three truly uplifting and worthy events at Future Form, 6 rue Massena, Nice.  Enjoy an afternoon of relaxation and fun. Welcome to come for one or all events.


The afternoon starts at 4.30pm, with yoga teacher Stéfanie Joyce, who will lead a sequence of 108 yoga mala sun salutations. Participation in class participants will be able to join the salutations in at any time.

Stephanie decided to give up her time to raise money for Preeti Orphanage Project in Nepal, of which Stephanie is a proud and committed ambassador.

Cost: Donations (not obligatory) will go to the orphanage.


The sun salutations will be followed at 7pm with a meditation for world peace led by Beverley Holt, Reiki Master and Teacher. The meditation is actually part of a simultaneous worldwide meditation organised by the International Reiki Association, so you will be one of thousands of people across the planet simultaneously channelling all of their positive energy into a collective will for a better and more harmonious world.

No experience necessary, just an open heart for World Peace.

Listen to what one of the World’s top Peace Leaders Thich Nhat Hanh has to say about World Suffering.


We will also acknowledge our ancestors on this important day . It is the Winter Solstice. We are very lucky to have Yanu, an experienced Shaman to guide us with a special ceremony; he may surprise us with drums or shakers.
