Tantra – More than just sex

2015-06-05 21.30.16I attended a Buddhist Tantra day course yesterday at the Kadampa Meditation Centre in Erdington Birmingham entitled The Power To Create The Life You Want

It was run by Gen Kelsang Leksang a very engaging teacher with a gift for the use of metaphors.

She explained that Tantric teachings provide us with an opportunity to deeply purify our minds so we create the reality we want. It’s not just about being able to have great sex; the great sex (and great life) comes as a result of a purified mind.

The day course, although only an introduction to Tantra explained the powerful transformative qualities of this practice. Tantra is highly consistent with the teachings and practices of A Course in Miracles so I felt right at home.

The meditations were amazing. Really helped me to re-connect with this route to inner peace.

Thank you

Thanks for all your calls, texts, emails, and FB messages

Thanks for all your calls, texts, emails, and FB messages

I’ve been overwhelmed by the expressions of love, the healing energy and the many, many wishes for a speedy restoration of my sight. There are no adequate words to convey the difference it’s made to me this last week. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Tomorrow will be a full week since it happened – the unchanged exterior belies the massive change on the inside. I’ll be writing a fuller account of the journey so far. Thanks also for all your advice on the blog, on Facebook, on the phone and by email. I’m so very, very grateful.

Good friends

Remembering a more relaxed time.

Remembering a more relaxed time.

Sometimes, when you’re so tired, when you’re wondering if it’s all worth it, when you could put your head in your hands and cry, you get an email like the one below. And it gives you the energy to keep going. Thanks Roger.

The indefatigable author Miss Penny Dixon is reported to be totally knackered….
 Dermot Murhgahan on Sky News exclaimed….. And I quote…-
 ‘No bloody wonder..!!!’
 An NHS spokesman says the underlying problem is that people such as Miss Dixon have so many balls in the air at one time..
And even though they have ample skills to keep on catching them they don’t realise that some of the balls have become heavier… 
She’s being advised to take a humanity check as she is only human like the rest of us.. also to throw some of the balls to one side for a while or possibly throw one or two to someone else… 
Professor Camden an esteemed psychologist at the Dixon Faculty of the Spoken Word ,
 (The faculty was funded by Miss Dixon following her success as an author to inspire others to keep their balls in the air too).

 Professor Camden has reported to the media that he and other close friends will be keeping a very close eye on Miss Dixon in the future as many of us have dropped our balls in the past and are now catching them again thanks to her intervention and good advice..

2 days, 10 speakers, 200 delegates and one God. It was an incredible event. I wasn’t the only one who made massive spiritual shifts.

Lovely hotel, delicious food and new friends. Plus a 20th anniversary party with proper dance music. I got a chance to shake more than a leg.

Inspired by Lillian at the Rotary Club

predencia

On Tuesday night I attended my first ever Rotary Club meeting as a guest of Pam Neaves (she who designs my book covers).

I was absolutely blown away by a lady to whom a presentation was being made. Lillian Hopkins at 97 is the oldest member of the women’s arm of the Rotary Club, known as Inner Wheel.

Not only is she active in the Wylde Green branch of the Rotary Club, she still travels to South Africa every year to support a number of charities; and to top it all she was wearing a dress I quite fancied myself.

Upfront Comedy

Hard to believe that this time last week I was getting dressed to go to the start of the comedy season at the Drum in Aston. I needed a laugh so badly, and the three comics didn’t disappoint.

Headline act Stephen K Amos took a few minutes to warm up but soon showed why he’s a pro.
