These are two selections from the meditation and teaching that I shared in the online Desert Flowers group (https://abwoon.org/desert-flowers/) on March 22, 2020.

The first is a short commentary on the Aramaic Prayer of Jesus for today (13 min):

The second is a longer healing meditation using Aramaic words of Jesus for the four elements (20 min):

We are still in the middle of Christian Lent with Passover following a few weeks from now and Ramadan shortly thereafter. These are all traditionally times of going inside more, doing without, changing our behaviour to help benefit others: surrender and resurrection, freeing ourselves from inner and outer Pharaohs (self-constructed fantasies), then receiving a message from Reality that empowers our actions. It is also a time in our culture when selfless leadership distinguishes itself from the “selfie” variety, in all of our institutions. Let’s be part of the former. 

Stay well, stay safe and let your actions match the integrity of your prayer and practice.

Yours in peace,
