Thank you for joining us for Jules Cashford's presentations. If you have any questions, comments or thoughts, please let us know here!
Jules Cashford's films are informative and inspiring. I very much enjoyed the program and I would like to express my appreciation to Jules for the insightful and thorough presentation and to ARAS as well. Thank you!
Thank you so much for the insightful, well researched, and relevant films. It has been a joy to be present. Besides having named my daughter Gaia, "my" School of the Origins is dedicated to creative and somatic practices to move us closer exactly to the necessities of awareness and inner change Jules shared (which I will not list here), from decolonizing the mind from the split codified by Enlightenment to embracing the Intelligences of Nature, recognizing them around us and intrinsic to our inner world as well. Talking about images... I wish to share a simple video that tracks the birth of a collaborative art piece (just acquired by a man who fell in love with Her) titled "She Who Responds" (guess who "She" is...), it is one possible tangible, imaginative, creative response to what Jules has been so poetically and accurately telling us. Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ka9DL9tzEp0
I just sat in amazement throughout the presentation. I learned a lot. I've already got books reserved to learn more. thank you for a beautiful presentation!
I can heartily recommend Pat’s paper and her book “Echo’s Subtle Body”. It’s very good indeed.
I started feeling what they call alive
They sent me to school when I was five
So I could name all the things I’d see
All the things that stood outside of me
Thank you for the stimulating webinar today. Thoroughly enjoyable.As you may know, I asked a couple of questions during the presentation. Both were based on my own experience. Following are two vignettes therefrom.1. PegasusI must thank you in particular for reminding me about an encounter with my father.The two of us were in his automobile. I was about 5 years old. We were conversing quite actively, quite enjoyably. A sweet time to remember.I saw a huge red horse with wings, probably on a billboard, or possibly illuminated over a gasoline station. I asked my Dad what it was. He told me a version of the story of Pegasus, taught me the name of the mythic creature, and that its father was the Greek’s God of the sea, and that its mother was a snake-haired Goddess who would turn you to stone if you looked at her. All quite vivid and suggesting that there was a lot more to the stories of the Greek Gods.We were so very close at that time.2. Sifu JustinIn a discussion of Taoism, following a TaiChi instruction by Sifu Justin, we drifted into some questions about Buddhism. I mentioned White Tara and the other Taras, and Sifu Justin said light-heartedly something like, “Those Buddhists have more saints and symbols than the Catholics.” My continuing study of Buddhism as a person raised Christian has confirmed that what Sifu said was both true and instructional. You can find some echoes of all this in the two questions I posted during the webinar.Thanks again.Yours in the Dharma,Bill Oakey
