WINTER 2013 - 14 E-GAZETE - HIBERNATION :o)
or you may prefer to just read the text below
Dear friends of the world,
yoginis and yogis of the planet,
friends of the Yunus Emre farm,
After the fire having devastated the farm, a quite hard year passed by for the Yunus Emre farm and me, yet after having reached the bottom, now, thanks to you the farm starts to move up again.
I have a cute shelter.
There is a lovely Yoga Studyo in Antalya to give yoga classes,
Durga is about to receive her new roof out of tin sheets,
As well as Saraswati.
Some more money had to be paid for the court expenses, so i have to postpone the few improvements i imagined i could bring to the farm (hot water system, and more electric power)
This will come later ...
Winter will be dedicated to writing, (a book is in progress – but in French!-) ,
to Earth, gardening little in the farm, planting new trees, and trying to give the fields better shape after having been devastated by machines...
and to inner work, hibernation, .. just like the trees, just like Nature !
Hibernation yes, yet, of course yoga classes will continue in Antalya, 3 days a week, and also a monthly Sunday Yoga program, offering the vast range of yoga practices:
hatha, karma, bhakti, jnana, raja; mantra yogas ... as glimpses during the day...
As far as the lawsuit is concerned, expert have ultimately come to the farm to see the remainings, and will give their assessment of the situation one day....
The next audience is planned on wednesday 21st January. Anyhow our case is closely linked the other criminal suit sued by the government towards the individuals, the workers who caused the fire. (Ours is civil)
So there is nothing much to do but send good energies so that the farm one days receives its deserved compensation!... :o))
Now, despite the farm being still in very basic conditions,
i am very glad to announce you
the RE- OPENING OF THE YUNUS EMRE FARM
and until AUTUMN
for yogic retreats, karma yoga stays, and volunteering.
Long term stay will also be possible.
More details will be available later, but you may contact me if you plan to come
I do also hope to present you soon a program of courses and seminars,
about topics like
and other themes
“karma yoga ” - “yoga &yantras” - “yoga &chacras” -
“yoga & creativity drawing painting” - “yoga & plants” ...
so as to help the farm rebuild
“ecologic building” - inshallah for Anahat house, the common house
“construction of a rocket stove” - a revolutionnary stove able to warm up
buildings with just a few matches ! (well, close to !)
Additionnaly, if you feel like planning a seminar in the Yunus Emre farm, with your students or /and other students, dont hesitate to contact me, i would be really happy to work on this with you!
We could have lovely karma yoga and havan and kirtan times together !! :o))
So, now, i wish to all of you the very best for 2014... a cosy winter, warm and comfortable, good yoga practices if so, and inspiration on your path.
Hari Om Tat Sat
