Gateways Down Under

So I’m traveling in the wonderful world of Aus right now. Back again in the land where much of the 5GATEWAYS film was shot, produced and edited. After recovering from an epic three day journey (almost!), I’ve been making last minute changes and preparations for a Five Gateways Activation here in Byron Bay at the weekend. And already I’m meeting such wonderful people. Byron is much like Glastonbury: a lot of conscious folk, challenging the accepted norms, shattering the taboos, exploring this amazing wave of awakening that keeps on accelerating...

Skip along to Five Gateways!

Hi friends downunder! Our Five Gateways event at Byron Bay on May 18th/19th is fast approaching. I'm certainly very excited to be back visiting Australia - the last time was when we were putting the final touches to our documentary 5GATEWAYS. There's a wonderful group gathering already, joining us at the aptly named Starseed Gardens. It promises to be a fantastic event, powered by the usual catalytic energy. So if you've been thinking about coming but waiting until the 'last minute', well this is the last minute! Why not skip along and join us...Full info

Hopi Video Diary

We've just released our latest video diary in which Chris shares his experiences during a recent visit to the Hopi Lands. What is their prophecy all about? How relevant is it to our Ascension? What do they mean by the return of the "Blue Star Kachina" and why is it so significant for humanity right now. It would seem they have a very poignant and accurate view of what's happening. Here's a link to the video diary...The Hopi Message

Gateways in America

"Sitting on the Dock of the Bay"
Well here I am in Tampa Florida, beginning an eleven day trip across the South USA. An Openhander here - Kim Agren - is coordinating a 5GATEWAYS Gathering (thanks Kim!). I'm looking forwards to an enthusiastic group - I always love these gatherings. Watching people break through new layers is always a joy to behold - a bit like watching a birth - well almost!

Return to Avalon: Rolling Journal

A wonderful group of Openhanders are returning to Avalon today to join us on this week's Walking the Path here at the Chalice Well. It's fairly recent that we've been using this particular venue and it's proving very special indeed to those who visit. It's been a place of pilgrimage and spiritual healing for many hundreds of years. Sitting at the base of the Tor, nestled on key lay lines and one of the ancient approach ways to the Isle of Avalon, it does indeed have a very special feel. Come join us in the rolling journal...

Unfolding our Spiritual Wings in Canada

Flying out to Five Gateways Canada
Brrrr. It's freezing here! I've just flown out from a mild UK, where spring buds are already beginning to appear in the Openhand garden, to a frosty minus eleven of Toronto; traveling for a Five Gateways Activation here this weekend. It's when you truly discover the meaning of selflessness! Lightheartedness aside, I can already feel the warmheartedness of the group, as we begin to gather in Unity Consciousness space, like eagles unfolding our spiritual wings and drawing together on the wind...

Ascension Exchange Meditations

We've been having wonderful monthly gatherings at the Miracles Room here in Glastonbury. Originally they were intended as follow ups to our seminar, but as with all things when allowed to, they've followed their own path and evolved into something else. So they're taken on a very meditative feel. The energy and atmosphere has become deeply sacred. We're exploring right to the boundaries of consciousness and pushing through. And what lovely kindred spirits! With people joining from as far afield as China, Australia, Germany, Sweden and even Wales (!), it's a very cosmopolitan group indeed. We are blessed! Come join us for the final session before the completion of 2012...

New mini movie: "The Spiritual Path"

We have a new mini movie out today, called "The Spiritual Path".
It was filmed mostly in Glastonbury, on the "Shores of Avalon". It's a video 'essay' containing reflections and stirring imagery about what it truly means to be walking the spiritual path. It's a heart-warming, inspirational production by the fair hands of Trinity. A lovely piece of work that I can thoroughly recommend. It's sure to activate something in your life.

Shores of Avalon: Rolling Journal

Our biannual course "Walking the Path" begins today at the magical Chalice Well. If you've not experienced the grace and majesty of this special location yet, then you have something wonderful to look forwards to. For the Openhand team, it holds a special place in our hearts. What is the Chalice? Well its the holy chalice, layed out purposefully to signify the birthing canal of the divine feminine, giving birth to a new humanity, a new way of being. Brimming with Magdalen Energy, which you can't fail to be touched by, it's been a place of spiritual pilgrimage for around 2000 years. Join us in this rolling journal entry as we guide the participants through what it really means to be walking the spiritual path...
