Recent artiste portraits: Malik

The artiste Malik recently hired me to do a promo portrait session for him. We did the shoot up at Mount St. Benedict on a hazy evening, with the last rays of the sun pushing momentarily through cloud banks to illuminate my trusty home made reflector. Within an hour we were finished.

Below are a few of the many shots.

Manifest Miracles Through the Guidance of your Soul

The workshops outlined in the article below are a glimpse into the fullness of what can be expected in the 2011 Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training & Self Mastery program. Details on cost of the workshops will be announced in December, in time for a late December/early January registration.
Manifest Miracles Through the Guidance of your Soul

When you understand who and what you are, your radiance projects into the universal radiance and everything around you becomes creative and full of opportunity. (Yogi Bhajan)

2011 is the beginning of the Age of Aquarius. Hard Times will begin to give way to greater peace and prosperity for those who properly prepare themselves.

We all have the natural mechanisms to thrive during intense change, but are you using it—your sensitivity, intuition, meditative mind, seven chakras and protective aura, and the steady guidance of your soul?  We need all the support available to us in these times.  And we can no longer look to others for our answers.

Our pains, problems, and struggles cannot be resolved by looking outside ourselves. The only power that will save us and prevail lies within each of us; it can be accessed by tapping into the full potential of Consciousness.  All outside help is becoming obsolete.

When we experience our exalted Self and feel the powerful presence of the Soul, peace reigns in our lives. Eventually all will know and use the voice of the Soul for guidance and success.  We can begin NOW with the right training.

A proven effective technology for accessing the Soul and manifesting a steady flow of happiness is an ancient system called Kundalini Yoga.

A complete body of powerful practices, Kundalini Yoga produces miracles of healing, and physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.

Now is the time to immerse yourselves in the teachings of Kundalini Yoga (as taught by Yogi Bhajan) to prepare and fine tune your entire being to transition through these diverse and challenging times.

We invite you to experience deep, lasting self-transformation through a full 200 hr. immersion training in the yogic technique and lifestyle called The Aquarian Teacher. This fully accredited teacher training in Kundalini Yoga, to be held in Trinidad in 2011, is the first of its kind in the Caribbean and includes three week-long coastal retreats. Gain the knowledge and confidence to challenge yourself and venture beyond subconscious limitations to discover your amazing potential, power and purpose. This course is designed for you - whether you want to transform your life and expand your consciousness, become a certified teacher or deepen your experience of Kundalini Yoga. All are welcome.

To launch this invaluable training opportunity, lead trainer Guru Meher Singh Khalsa of Los Angeles will be in Trinidad over the weekend of 21 – 23 January 2011 to offer a series of self-mastery workshops based on the technology of Kundalini Yoga.

SOUL ANSWERS - Learn to quickly and reliably tap into the source of answers.  Be your own personal guru.

EMOTIONAL LIBERATION - learn to harness the intense energy of your feelings for healing and success.  Transform anxiety, anger, and even depression into allies to your progressive well being.

MORE LOVE MORE MONEY - Direct your desires to create satisfaction, contentment, fulfilment of your life purpose.

SELF-HEALING SECRETS OF THE ANCIENTS - In this full day workshop you will use a variety of powerful ancient techniques for relaxation, healing and prosperity. This day will give you tools to continue to enhance your quality of life and show you an open door to your own path of destiny.

Guru Meher Singh Khalsa began studying under Yogi Bhajan in 1981, and has been teaching Kundalini Yoga ever since. He is the Director of Teacher Training at Yoga West, Yogi Bhajan's original studio in Los Angeles, travels internationally to train teachers in Level One and Two programs, and works with the Aquarian Academy to train the next generation of teacher trainers. As a professional Life Coach, he helps people identify and transform personal blocks to their happiness and fulfillment, and as a public speaker introduces non-yogic audiences to body-mind-spirit training.

How high does the poui tree grow?

Poui tree through my window
Every year for the past few years I have been invited to be a judge at the "Facing Life" film and drama competition for secondary schools, organised by Rebirth House Drug Rehab Centre. The founder of this competition, Roger Beckles is someone I had met through a friend. Even after only meeting a few times initially, somehow he believed in, respected and admired me and always called me every year to (a) be a judge and (b) invite me to their Rebirth House Christmas party. A lovely and genuine person, always smiling. 

This year a woman called me and said "It's that time of year again. Will you be a judge for us?"

I said yes.

On the day of the competition, last Thursday, I called Roger's cellular to ask him some details on the competition. His phone kept beeping and cutting off. I eventually I gave up and headed down to the Centre of Excellence (the competition venue).

I got there and, while greeting one of the other judges, looked to the stage. There was a huge mural of a poui tree with symbols of various elements around it, threatening its blossoming and growth: drugs, alcohol, AIDS, etc. Then, to the right, there was an image of Roger smiling. At first I thought "What's that doing there?" Maybe they chose to feature his image as the founder of the event?

But the image had the quality of those often seen in obituaries. I think something leaves an image when someone leaves this life.

I turned to the other judge and said, "Where's Roger?"

The look of shock in his eyes cannot be described. "You didn't know?" he whispered.

Before Roger died unexpectedly in April 2010, he had come up with a theme for this year's Facing Life (Ten) competition:

How high does the poui tree grow?
if you cut it down, you will never know ...

These borrowed sentences from a song mean a lot, particularly if we understand just how we 'cut it down'. We abort our plans, sometimes consciously in the interest of wise decision making, but sometimes plans are aborted, without thinking, by the choices we make in the interest of having a good time.

Some of the saws we use are alcohol and other drugs, compulsive sex, gambling, gluttonous eating, immodesty, violence, other anti-social behaviour or other demonstrations of ill health. We appeal to you to LET THE TREE GROW! Whether poui, mango or sycamore, grow to your full potential and reach your destiny.

(From the competition programme)

Rest in Peace, Roger.

Testimonial from Carole Anne F.

My studio at the time, laid out for Serendipity's Dinner
Elspeth's abillty to create a magical event is amazing. This is how it all began. I attended an art exhibition and in looking at Elspeth's work I saw an envelope to take part in a surprise event. This looked intriguing and I was admiring the windows - ( I am a photographer and have a fascination with doors and windows too) so I popped my name in there.

Well a few days later I received a call from Elspeth who invited me to a supper at the studio. This was the most wonderful experience. There were only about 8 of us, I recall, and there were many delightful surprises that only Elspeth could have dreamed up including profound little sayings in small envelopes for each person. I was unaware at the beginning that all this was, in fact, to hand over the one of the windows to its new owners and that this was being videoed as part of the journey of the window.

This, is what each window is, a kind of creative journey from the time it is found and onwards and I just loved that concept and was so happy to be a part of this one which was called "Serendipity" ... and that is why, I am guessing, there was a random element of chance thrown into the occasion. It was a beautiful object d'art and not just a window anymore and I am sure the new owners will now be cherishing that they are part of the Serendipity's journey.
