  • Special Egazete for the Light Fest and

    Festival of Good news in the Yunus Emre farm ! 8th dec 2017



    Sharing of the Sun Garden

    For after nearly 5 month of hard and seemingly endless administrative process we ultimately reached there with the young farmers : the Sun garden – land of the Yunus Emre farm – is now SHARED between all of us !!!

    This 1.35 ha land is now shared between the farm  (0.45ha) Mehmet (0.3ha) Sefa (0.3ha) Seçkin (0.15ha) Isil (0.15ha)…


    You may remember that whereas Mehmet and Sefa work in Antalya, Seçkin and Isil live in Germany, and all of them work as engineers in aviation & space ; Now they have their piece of land where they will be able to ground themselves and have some quiet time with the surrounding forest and mountains bringing them peace and tranquillity ...

    We are all very happy of this event and if the financial relief is for me obviously important, I am sincerely rejoicing a LOT to see the field of the farm being ultimately SHARED …

    A new ERA is beginning for the Yunus Emre farm

    You may also remember that having learned some basics of “Shared Governance” we try to apply them in the governance of our young team… And until now well… although we have been through difficult times involving paperworks and money issues – which, as we all know, are typically difficult to deal with in a group because the egos are very sensitive  – we finally ended up all work done and HAPPY !

    So as we say in Turkish …

    “gule gule oturun ! hayirlisi olsun!” … “sit smiling smiling … may this work be beneficial!” 


    Festival of Light and Good news !



    There are also other very good news, which concern mostly French speakers/ readers… 

    I know a few of you are, so in brief here they are :

    I will come back soonnnnn very sooonn with all the details :) in french as well as in english !

    Festival of Light and Good news !


    Mirabelle, (alias Isabelle :) author of the book “Adventures of a yogini pilot around the earth, or a thirsty quest for truth” will be in Lyon to present her book on the 17 january !...

    Of course this will be French only ... Yet I will give you the information soon, in case ... :)

    Festival of Light and Good news !



    In Lyon tonight is a  big Light festival !

    Its origine dates from the Middle age or so, as the Lyon's inhabitants have always been very much devoted to Mary, the mother of Jesus.

    It is said that in the ancient times, Mary saved Lyon's inhabitants from a terrible epidemy… and later saved them again from some savage invasion…

    But it is when the religious authority decided ultimately to offer a golden statue to Mary, that the Light’s fest started… How?

    The authority planned to install the statue on the “Fourviere’s basilica” on the 8th September; However a terrible flood took place which prevented the event from taking place. It has been postponed to the 8th December. Yet, that day too tremendous weather obscured the sky, and no installation could be done… until … the evening came where finally the sky became clear !

    At this moment, Lyon's people saw a “message” from Mary and spontaneously lighted hundreds of candles at their windows… and the statue could be put into place…

    And that’s how each 8th December is now celebrated as the Day of the Lights !

    Good Night !!  Happy Light festival !!

    Wealth & Spirituality - Letter of the Financial independance, 1


    You may know or not, I have started a course to become rich !!!!! AH ?? Yes ! You read correctly !! ... A course to get out of the situation in which I have been trapped since the fire of the Yunus Emre farm put me down... Now things are moving forward and since this new venture is really fascinating I decided to share it with you in the form of Letter of Financial Independance... And for the French speaking/ reading ones, a specific website is dedicated to this venture : LIBERTE FINANCIERE.. where much more will be written in the course of time :)


    Firstly to put things straight, I wish to tell you that this letter (and the following if we continue) aim not at teaching you how to become rich !!! Sure not!! Neither do I have skill for this, nor the intention! My wish is to share my impressions and experiences along this new venture, which might appear to many a bit weird… Why a sannyasin yogini wants now to become rich? Or financially independant? Isn’t it contradictory with the spiritual teachings? With being a sannyasin?...

    Precisely… The main “brake” which made me resist to dive into this course is this: can money and spirituality live together in harmony? Big subject… causing often headaches or conflicts !!!

    Wealth & Spirituality

    Yet as many of you know, I have been through such strong experiences that now I fell like compelled by life to commit myself into this course, to become “financially independant”…

    And fortunately, before I registered to the course, I could easily understood that Nathalie (my teacher in this venture) is a generous and spiritual oriented person, working on beautiful projects (like home care for elderly people); so yes, she earns a lot of money with her companies but she uses this Money both for herself and  to finance projects which benefit to many; Besides, Donations have a big role in her teaching too.

    Anyhow, I also decided that only I could decide. Noone else could tell me if I am right or wrong engaging this course. Whatever I will learn, I will have my own opinion and position which do not depend on other people.

    So you see, I don’t know where I go… But I go ! And if you want to go with me… Let me KNOW by mail "yes egazete/ yes Letter of financial independance" !!




    In most of the books which deal with financial independence, we see those expressions “the poors” and “the richs”… which might be a bit shocking at first… But the only aim of using such expressions is of course to simplify reading and explanations… We know that nothing is black or white, rich or poor. But to simplify, “poor” will mean having difficulties with money, and rich, being at ease with money. Obvious. And I will use the same vocabulary even without brackets…

    Likewise when i say that i am on a path to  create wealth, that I want to become rich (and without shame!) it does not mean that my ultimate goal is to drive a Jaguar or spend weeks on a private Yacht making a cruize… Sure not! Moreover, I already tasted such pleasures; that’s over. Precisely because those materialistic pleasure did not satisfy me, did I feel bad and uncomplete during many years of my life. (specially pilot life)

    Now things have drastically changed because thanks to my spiritual path of yoga, I could fulfill the gap that was inside me, I have found the way to my inner self and I know that either “rich” or “poor”, I will feel equanimity and “santosh” contentment of the one who knows that life experiences are nothing but steps to climb;

    Moreover life already tested me strongly bringing me back to the “absolute zero” … Funny story indeed in a way!  We can laugh !! And that very funny story lead me now to this new road, that of Financial Independance…

    So may Wealth and Spirituality be reconciled ? …. Hé hé … That’s the big mystery! !

    Wealth & Spirituality

    Wealth & Spirituality

    Whereas it seems to be acknowledged by all to pay the bill in a restaurant, to pay the ticket in the theater, to even pay the psychologist or the dentist, it is another story when we have to pay for a yoga seminar, meditation retreat, or chanting workshop… As if the organizers of such programs would only live on love alone :) Interesting!

    Let’s investigate a bit further…

    I read in the Olivier Seban’s book “Everyone deserves to be rich” that the first step to access wealth is made of three stages:

                          Accumulation   à Investment à Protection

    In yoga, I learned exactly the contrary : « do not accumulate », « do not store », « trust the Univers, supreme protection»…

    This book tells me to do exactly the contrary that yoga taught me… Yet I will do it and stay yogini…

    Why ? How ?  Because I ultimately understood that it is my DUTY  … because…


    The biggest favour we can do to poor people,

    Is not to be poor ourselves ! !  


    Wealth & Spirituality


    So talked a remarkable woman during an interview on one American TV. Black and migrant, she found herself years ago totally broke, sleeping in the street with her baby, because she wanted to be united to her community. In her despair, she promised herself to get out of this nightmare and become rich. Now she is company manager and thanks to her wealth she can concretely help her community.

    Sorry madam, I could not remember your name but your story moved me a lot!


    Wealth & Spirituality



    So, I too, understood that, just like being Healthy is our duty, being Rich is also our duty ;

    Only if we are Healthy can we help the sick ; only if we are Healthy can we Act in the world.

    Only if we are Rich, can we help the poor; only if we are Rich can we Act in the world.

    And for those of us who believe that « money is bad » « money renders people bad » or such things… rendezvous in the next letters where I will deal with this subject : our beliefs…


    So I will learn how to create wealth, for me at first – and I am not ashamed of saying this as I ultimately understood that I too need money to live, to do what I have to do, and even to have pleasure in life.

    And then for the world, in the form of my contribution, which is not to help the poor like Mother Teresa or Abbé Pierre as I had to admit, but to transmit what I believe in, Yoga, Spirituality, and whatever can help to live better in a better world ;


    While the Yunus Emre farm is the earthly expression of this, my books and publications are the written one ;  And to make this Manifest into the world, it takes Money !  

    For definitely, time has passed when yogis, shamans, druids or medicine men were living upon donations that their patients or disciples would give them. Those Wise ones were generally supported by the community they were living in, or nearby, sometimes in a cave, sometimes under a giant tree…

    Nowadays times have radically changed. One has to accept it and accommodate. Not only the communities most of the time just don’t care about druids, medicine men, yogis who have been marginalized – when not completely banished – by the modern societies ( yet, who knows… they may come back one day though???)  but for those Wise ones who still practice and dedicate their lives to the community by spreading their wisdom to the world, money is definitely also needed to allow their living, travelling, performing good actions and basically paying their bills!


    So it looks very much down to earth, away from what we imagine to be spirituality, but that’s the reality.

    Money is Also needed by those who dedicate to Spiritual Life.


    Wealth & Spirituality




    It was not obvious at all for me who always had my head in the clouds… feeling above these basic material realities… Until the day I ultimately understood that if I would not take responsibility for my living, no one would take it for me.

    No one?

    Let me correct ! For since this “sacred fire” which reduced to nothing my finances and any possible earning, the Providencial universe provided me with magnificent “incomes” in the form of donation of all kinds, from all parts, during five years which have been full of great teaching and wealth of a very special nature;

    However very recently, in september 2017, I “heard” this Providence whisper to my ear that I was ultimately ready to take over the responsibility of my financial situation…

    -- That’s your turn now !

    -- Hummm well…. Ok but… How ? …

    And here Nathalie Cariou arrives, just like Zorro riding her black horse, she opens the doors of abundance by showing me the way to Financial independance… Lovely synchronicity !

    When we are ready, the master shows…   Everything happens at the right time…

    The venture of financial independence starts and I will narrate it both at the material and spiritual level ; in fact both are mirrors of one another. True spirituality is the one which is experienced Here on the Earth, rooted into matter.

  • New moon, news of the farm and Isabelle alias Mirabelle   Novembre 2017


    Here I am again after some time “off” yet fully busy… I feel the Moon runs faster than me in the sky!... I lose my rythme!

    Anyhow… I hope you will rejoice by reading those good news..…

    --> For those who do not know yet, I started two months ago a course to learn about “Financial Independance”.

    Everywhere on the internet we can read about this topic and find more or less good quality papers, trainings, coaches claiming they will make you rich in a few weeks by simply calling abundance…

    Hum… I am lucky enough to have met Nathalie Cariou thanks to my friend Marie Pierre who is also a yoga teacher, and I instantly found out that her approach towards the subject of the Financial Intelligence is just great.

    Knowing that my financial situation has been absolutely critical those last years (because of the farm’s fire in 2012) and feeling that the time had come for me to take my finances into control, I urgently wanted to register to the course… Yet the price was as high as my bank account was empty…

    I spent one night in despair and in the morning I knew that I had to book for the course: It was Vital.

    I also knew that Money would come for it;

    And you know that I called YOU again, and YOU answered, and YOU helped me again.  

    And now, I am super happy to announce you that the course is Fully Paid !

    So please receive again all my GRATITUDE !!! …


    I can assure you that this course will give fruits!... Actually it already started :

    -->  Thanks to Marie Pierre, (who introduced me to Nathalie Cariou and the course) we shall organize in spring a beautiful program “Yoga & Trek in Turkey” : 12 days between the Yunus Emre farm and Taurus moutains, and the Lycian way along the mediterraneen coast. Conscious walks, guided meditations, daily yoga practices, healthy food, visit of historical places… A lovely program guided by Marie Pierre, IFY yoga teacher, a Professional guide for the Lycian way, and my self, Isabelle, Satyananda yoga teacher. We plan to publish the announcement next month, however the dates are already booked : from 18th to 29th may… to put in your calendar !

    --> Thanks to Heidi & Anette, I have become “corrector” on a edition website; this job should generate some incomes in Euros

    -->  Thanks to Marie-Pierre again, I have become Ambassador for Nathalie Cariou’s courses; this job too should generate some incomes in Euros via “MLM” network marketing;

    Not only because my recent past has been financially difficult, but also because of the economical global situation, generating incomes in Euro is very important to me: Turkish lira has become so weak that buying Euros is like buying Gold !!


    Having said that, I continue my study about the nature of Money; It is incredible how important our beliefs are… and the power they have… The biggest part of the program might be to reorganize not only the accountancy, bank accounts, purses etc. but also the beliefs… Sorting out which are “appropriate” and which are not… And keeping only the appropriate ones… and then accepting the flow of abundance …

    I plan to share this new venture in a new website & facebook page but… in French only :)  :(   Apologize to my english speaking friends… But for the french speakers, here is the new website: https://isabellelibertefinanciere.jimdo.com/

    All for now !

    It is said that this New Moon has the power of realizing our wishes and it is a good idea to write them or draw them now and offer them to the Moon … I did it ! … And you ?

    Good night !
