We would like to make the meditations a monthly event on the last Wednesday of every month. Each month we will give updates about how things are going in Venezuela. For the next one on 30th Aug I will be in Caracas & I hope to lead a meditation directly over there too.

Tonight’s ceremony in Nottingham at the start of the meditation will be streamed live starting just before 7.30pm UK time. When the video goes live you will...

They work incredibly hard. But unfortunately they do not get enough money for their needs because not all Order members contribute.

They ask for KR 100 a month from each Order member...
