November 19th

Today is the day when committed leaders or founders of different projects are invited to the institute. Different panels are offered on the themes of water, nutrition, education, spirituality and music. Again we are touched by the richness of thought and action that gathers here in one place. I would …

November 18th

A day when all the people of the Defend the Sacred Alliance introduce themselves. Moving stories. I would like to highlight Rajendra Singh who is dedicating his whole life to heal the water. He went into the public eye as an Indian water conservationist and environmentalist from Rajasthan. Also known …

November 16th

We arrive in Sao Paulo on time at three o’clock in the night, stand in line for hours for passport control. When we are finally outside, it is already lightly dawning. Claudio welcomes us with an enormously elegant car with seven seats. For over an hour we drive through the …

November 15th

Travel day. Early in the morning Andrea goes with German and Levis to the Covid-test. I talk a bit with Magarita, where we have found a wonderful hostel. Nobody would believe that we are here in the middle of Bogota. The courtyard with its many flowers and small trees guards …

November 14th

A restless night with many dreams. Early in the morning I do the Ring of Power in the inner courtyard. I usually always wake up at 4:00, so I don’t need an alarm clock. It is nice to tend the Agnihotra fire after my meditation, just before I take the …

November 13th

November 12th

What a day! At 4.30 the cab is waiting for us at the door. We decided to visit Taita Édgar Orlando Gaitán Camacho, whom we met in 2008 at a ceremony with the sacred medicine they call yagé (ayahuasca) here. He impressed us very much at that time in the …

November 11th

Back in Bogota. We feel as if we have been in a movie. The changes are quite fast and our soul has to digest. The conversation with Padre Javier Giraldo helped us today. He is something like the father figure of the peace community, in whom they have absolute trust. …

November 9th

Early in the morning at six o’clock we meet in front of the small chapel by the stone placements that we have placed here together.  The cosmograms represent the ethical values of the community. We explain a little bit why the 9th of November has such a meaning for us, …

November 8th

Slowly it becomes challenging to keep a clear mind. I already know the process, every time I have been here, there comes a moment when it becomes difficult to digest all the stories. There comes such a cry from the soul: “My God why do you allow all this!”, to …
