Work Exchange with Openhand @ Avalon Rising

Submitted by TeamOpenhand on Tue, 02/02/2016 - 18:07

We have plenty of work exchange opportunities coming up at the Openhand Centre Avalon Rising. Do you have some basic skills and plenty of enthusiasm you can offer? If so, you might like to come and stay for free, in exchange for a few hours work a day. There's plenty to do in the garden, we've got the new strawbale studio to build and to cobb, and indoors there's often cleaning and decorating work going on. It's a great way to come and spend time in the Openhand energy, to experience Glastonbury and to take some time away for reflection. Here's what's involved...

Openhand Facilitator Training

Submitted by Open on Wed, 01/27/2016 - 04:52

What a privilege! - all this week, we're training a new group of Openhand Facilitators at Avalon Rising. The shift is hotting up, increasingly the world is feeling it, and the demand for people skilled in helping others integrate the effects, is greatly increasing - it's a massive growth area. How do you regress people into their karma and bring them successfully through it? How do you activate Kundalini and help someone begin the Ascension process? How do you integrate spirituality into daily 'normal' life? Openhand Facilitators have been through the core course program and shown an aptitude for deep energetic work - feeling the field, unleashing blockages and facilitating an increased harmony of flow. Here's what facilitator training is all about...Openhand Facilitator Program

*Important Openhand Event Date Changes 2016*

Submitted by TeamOpenhand on Sat, 01/23/2016 - 13:30

Openhand makes a point of listening to your feedback and the natural flow. Many of you told us you'd love to come to the 5GATEWAYS event in Seattle over Easter, but the airfares were too expensive. So we've moved the Seattle 5GATEWAYS to 18th-22nd April. We're merging the 5GATEWAYS at Avalon during that period with 5GATEWAYS in Belgium. And instead over Easter, at Avalon Rising, we'll be putting on a special 5day Personal Retreat. We trust that all makes sense! Here are the details...

Embrace the New Year with Openhand

Submitted by Open on Mon, 12/28/2015 - 07:22

The New Year is always a special time in the Openhand calendar. We see it as a time of transition and transformation. It's a time of reflection upon what happened in the previous year; of integration of lessons learned, then preparing oneself to begin a fresh start, invigorated with positively creative energy into the New Year. If you can look inside and free up consciousness, return it to the source, inside yourself, then you open incredible opportunity and potential for alchemical change. This year, we gather with a group of 20 at the very special Chalice Well in Avalon. Come tune into this running journal of the festivities. Wherever you are, tune into the energy and let it inspire your New Year!...

Realignment taking place within the nature of Openhand

Submitted by Open on Thu, 12/03/2015 - 08:32

People who are very intuitive and/or close to Openhand, may well have spotted quite a realignment taking place in the background in recent times. It's to do with the nature of the relationship between myself and Trin, and how that's evolving. In the early days, our vibrations were very close, we expressed similar frequencies. The two of us danced together and Openhand was more a collaboration between the two of us. However, as we've each embodied our own higher vibration more, it's accentuated the uniqueness of each, and that is naturally causing a reshaping our respective soul pathways. We now feel to share an insight into that journey, so that people in the community will better understand the shifts that many close to us have already begun to feel...

Behind the scenes of writing a recipe book - a life changing experience

Submitted by Trinity on Tue, 10/27/2015 - 08:40

At the moment my house is FULL of books… books galore! 250 copies of Angelicious landed on my doorstep yesterday. People often ask me about what it takes to publish a recipe book. There are so many twists and turns along the way - so many incidental things that make it whole and complete.

In this post I wanted to capture a flavour of the EPIC, life changing journey of bringing a book like Angelicious into being.

"Avalon Rising" - Openhand Centre in Glastonbury

Submitted by Open on Mon, 08/24/2015 - 06:42

Openhand first established itself in Glastonbury in 2005, drawn by the very special energy here which is deeply alchemical, healing and revelatory. "Avalon" is the mystical name given by many locals to this place. In worldwide spiritual circles it is often known as the heart chakra of the planet. Openhand has been gifted two wonderful houses both side by side, both with huge back gardens, in the centre of the energy. It's been our pleasure to develop the space in a sacred way so that Openhanders from all around the world may come and partake of this exceptional energy and to gain a deeper understanding of the Openhand Philosophy. It is our pleasure to host you.

The space will be held by two wonderful Openhanders Ben Freund and Fiona Reilly, who've both been with us since the early days. And we'll be calling our new Centre "Avalon Rising". We do hope to see you here in due course. Here are some pictures of our Centre...
