Building Openhand "Studio 8" journal


It's finally happening - the new Openhand, purpose built meditation studio is coming! We are VERY excited about this! The energy of everything we do feels important to us, so, naturally, every step of the way is being made consciously. We're divinely blessed to have a huge plot at the Openhand Retreat Centre in Glastonbury... perhaps about two thirds of and acre - right in the middle of town. The building is emerging as an octagonal/round studio, lovingly built with local, reclaimed and sustainable materials. We've already activated a sacred energy portal within the space. It pulsates with higher consciousness already...

Higher Dimensional Walk-in


Hi friends,
It is time to introduce myself as "Open" (formerly Chris Bourne). I am a Higher Dimensional Soul Exchange (what some call a 'walk-in'). I came into this incarnation in the time around Chris's life threatening car crash back in 2002. The walk-in took place as the result of a sacred agreement between myself and the previous soul. It was his soul's destiny to ascend and move on. It is mine to bring an important message from benevolence and to catalyse a shift to help unravel the Opposing Consciousness intervention here on Earth at this time...

Becoming the lake

A powerful story to encourage expandedness...

An aging master grew tired of his apprentice’s complaints. One morning, he sent him to get some salt. When the apprentice returned, the master told him to mix a handful of salt in a glass of water and then drink it.
“How does it taste?” the master asked.
“Bitter,” said the apprentice...

Serving divine purpose with Openhand

As I look back on the journey I have walked since joining Open during the initial stages of the formation of the Openhand Foundation, many moons ago, I can honestly say that I have been consistently and repeatedly brought to my knees with the deepest soul stirred humbleness and gratitude.

From the onset it was always incredibly powerful, yet, in the years that we've been running Openhand, we've seen this organisation go through untold layers of expansion, shedding skin after skin. As eternal students, we've embraced it as our own journey of self realisation and discovery. The universe has orchestrated the perfect situation for me to become fully 'me' and serve my divinely given purpose.

5Gateways Film Screening BYRON BAY AREA


Chris is on his way to Byron Bay in New South Wales for the Five Gateways Activation workshop this weekend. It feels like a divinely inspired journey to bring the Openhand energy to the far reaches of the world. It's certainly a long way from our home town of Glastonbury. It's so heart warming to have been invited to Australia.

Here I am - Creating the Conscious Kitchen


I am a aware that I've been a little absent from my usual posting presence on Openhandweb since Chris returned from his epic Florida, Hopi Lands and LA trip. I assure you I've been checking in, keeping up to date with emails and and very much here in spirit. My absence has all been for a very divinely inspired reason... I thought it would be nice to check in with a blog update.

Skip along to Five Gateways!


Hi friends downunder! Our Five Gateways event at Byron Bay on May 18th/19th is fast approaching. I'm certainly very excited to be back visiting Australia - the last time was when we were putting the final touches to our documentary 5GATEWAYS. There's a wonderful group gathering already, joining us at the aptly named Starseed Gardens. It promises to be a fantastic event, powered by the usual catalytic energy. So if you've been thinking about coming but waiting until the 'last minute', well this is the last minute! Why not skip along and join us...Full info

Hopi Video Diary


We've just released our latest video diary in which Chris shares his experiences during a recent visit to the Hopi Lands. What is their prophecy all about? How relevant is it to our Ascension? What do they mean by the return of the "Blue Star Kachina" and why is it so significant for humanity right now. It would seem they have a very poignant and accurate view of what's happening. Here's a link to the video diary...The Hopi Message

An interview with Chris Bourne by collective evolution

Chris was recently asked to do interview with Joe Martino for the Collective Evolution Magazine in Canada. It offers an excellent, insightful window into Chris's world, from his early journey; the car crash; how Five Gateways came in to being; how it can support people on the path; why he's here and what Openhand is all about...

Return to Avalon: Rolling Journal

A wonderful group of Openhanders are returning to Avalon today to join us on this week's Walking the Path here at the Chalice Well. It's fairly recent that we've been using this particular venue and it's proving very special indeed to those who visit. It's been a place of pilgrimage and spiritual healing for many hundreds of years. Sitting at the base of the Tor, nestled on key lay lines and one of the ancient approach ways to the Isle of Avalon, it does indeed have a very special feel. Come join us in the rolling journal...
