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.

Imagine consciously practising the procedure in your dream and remember and apply it when you wake up?

What is Lucid Dreaming?

A lucid dream is any dream in which one is aware that one is dreaming.

Psychological healing, physical healing (yes, really and we even have the science to back it up!), spiritual practice, mind exploration, nightmare integration, creativity, learning, fun.

December 5th, 19h30 -21h30 at The Ellington Hotel, Nice.


In this inspirational talk Hay House author and Buddhist lucid dreaming teacher Charlie Morley explores how lucid dreaming can be of both spiritual and psychological benefit to those who practice it as part of their spiritual path.


Sourced from over 13 years of personal practice and 5 years of teaching the subject at Buddhist centres and retreats around the world, this talk will open you up to the possibility of engaging deep change while you sleep deeply. So come and learn how bringing mindfulness into all aspects of sleep and dream can lead to a profound shift in our engagement with the 30 years of our lives which most of us spend asleep!


Charlie will explore candidly his journey from hip hop performer to Buddhist lucid dreaming teacher, using humour and personal insights to highlight just how powerful lucid dreams can be for healing, psycho-spiritual growth, mind training and insight into the very nature of reality.
