Flute Circle B'day Gathering at Bellbunya

Wow what a weekend up at Bellbunya!!

For me it was the best flute circle ever and the response from others is much the same. There was a really strong sense of connection amongst us. Peace and unconditional love unite us further revealing the truth that we all are one in spirit. The union of all our journeys and our personal connections to spirit reinforced this bond and the great benefits of sharing this together were realised. I felt a collective desire present to enjoy and make the most of such a great opportunity and as the main organiser and leader of this group this humbled me and was a special goose bumpy kind of feeling. The warmth of being in this great company was awesome and that warmth will stay forever in the knowing of having so many great friends.

The Bellbunya community members also really enjoyed hosting us and joining in as well as welcoming us to join their activities. It's a honour as usual to have such a supportive community like Bellbunya to host such a gathering taking the pressure off us to create a great Gathering. It's also a great honour that Belbunya have invited us to come back so It has been decided that we will definitely return to Bellbunya for a future gathering one day.

Here are my pics of the weekend that are too good not to share.

The fire circle was an entertaining and relaxing part of the weekend. A warm evening so just a small fire.

An Owl early on Sunday Morning, looking injured with blood dripping, but still able to hold itself in the wild, we chose not to intervene. We think possibly had a run in with a Python or was attacked by nesting Magpies. He was on the varandah railing outside our rooms and I saw him on the Sunday Morning as I opened my door at 6 am.

Sunday Circle
We gathered in a shady spot under some trees for the circle on the Sunday. We did the talking stick ceremony for a good while After we played a flowing flute meditation where silently without words, one at a time, we played a song and it flowed from one to another when and if they felt to play. This was very peaceful and meditative and was a totally in heart moment for all. After we all joined in together for one song together, amazing how these sound when the energy of peace has formed amongst the group, what normally would not work because of the varying keys just blends into a healing mandala of sound bliss.


Krandan, all the way from his work in the Timor Sea to be with us, plays his Spirit.

Satya sharing her heart song.

Michael sharing his song.

Verna playing her spirit Song.

Helen going within.

Zoe sharing hers on her new flute.

Sahayak passionately goes to the zone where songs effortlessly flow as he shares his song.

Michael looks inwards and shares his inner peace.

Letting go of everything to go within, the flute the vehicle. I love it. Words cannot explain the feeling.

Kate plays a lovely song.

Soaking up the stillness of this moment.

Zoe and Maia.

Rob shares his inner journey in sound Verna looking on.

"Sooty owl !! amazing, very rare creature ~ they make the call of a falling whistle ~ definitely a sign of powerful intention and focused energy coming together"
