"5Gateways" Attended Film Screening & Workshop
With the release of our upcoming documentary "5Gateways", we've been asked to put on a number of "Attended Screenings" with Chris & Trinity on hand to introduce the film and take questions afterwards. It will be followed up by a two day "Five Gateways Workshop" for those who want to venture deeper and take an experiential journey through the Gateways. We're calling it our "Five Gateways Event" and we're really excited by the combination. It means people can 'dip their toes' into the Openhand water first before deciding whether or not to dive head-long in! The first event takes place in Manchester on Friday 11th March to Sunday 13th March...

Our evolution has reached a vital crossroads
A Spiritual Evolution is taking place to people in all walks of life everywhere. We're challenging the very fabric upon which our lives have been founded. Whatever self realisation approach you’ve been using, our Five Gateways route map can bring into clear perspective what the journey is really all about, where you are on it and enlightening tools that can help you open the next Gateway of unfolding. Although buried within the distorting mists of time, Five Gateways is a route-map that has been followed by spiritual masters throughout the centuries from across all spiritual disciplines and religions. Its understanding and integration can be of profound benefit in our daily lives.

"5Gateways Attended Screening": Highlights for 11th March
There are many paths up the spiritual mountain, for each of us the journey will be unique. Yet we are all influenced in very similar ways as we pass key 'altitudes' on route to the summit. Understanding these transitions can remove much unnecessary suffering in our lives and catalyse our next step. That's the purpose for us producing the "5Gateways" film, to inspire this magical human evolution.

"5Gateways" is a colourful documentary produced by Openhand's associates Smiling Dragonfly (www.smilingdragonfly.com). It details from direct first hand experience, the spiritual transitions we all must make if we are to peel away the blockages that limit us and unfold into the new paradigm.

Openhand's Chris and Trinity Bourne will be there in person introducing the film, sharing a little about how it was created (an amazing story in its own right!) and then taking your questions afterwards. There will be an opportunity to buy a copy of the DVD and a signed book which inspired the film. Here's the film trailer...

"Five Gateways Workshop": Highlights for 12th/13th March
For some, our "5 Gateways" film may be all you need right now, but for others, you might also feel inspired to take an experiential journey with us through the Gateways of expanded realisation and integrate the energy into your daily life for powerful uplifting benefit.

During the workshop, we create a safe and protective environment, accepting you totally as you are. Then using highly evolved meditation techniques combined with powerful self realisation exercises and intuitive questioning, we guide you deep on a journey of self discovery, sinking into presence, dissolving internal blockages and unfolding profound gifts of authentic beingness. The work specifically involves:

  • exploration of the profound nature of reality combining direct spiritual experience with grounded scientific understanding
  • self realisation, guided meditations with group and individual interaction
  • in-depth exploration of the authentic nature of the self including the absolute, the soul, our chakra system and bodily vehicles of expression
  • energy processing to release internal blockages and dissolve limiting, conditioned thinking
  • in-depth exploration of the five key expansions including, inner child awareness, kundalini activation, karmic past lives, Enlightenment and Ascension

The energy we generate can carry you directly into the higher energetic paradigm, a consciousness that can then stay with you in day-to-day living and guide you on a pathway of authentic destiny - the lives we were always meant to live. Participants generally experience the process as deeply liberating, expansive and evolutionary.

Event Facilitators

  • Chris Bourne: At the age of 40, Chris was involved in a life threatening car crash in which he thought he would certainly die. This precipitated total inner surrender, a rapid expansion of consciousness and reconnection with the absolute - the God within us. He explains "It was as if I was being challenged to surrender every belief and value that I held. The sense of coming home to my true self was joyous and intensely liberating. I felt that in losing what I thought to be myself I had gained everything".

    Prior to his awakening Chris had a rich and varied professional career including a Science Masters Degree from Oxford University. It is this synthesis of both profound spiritual experience and grounded scientific understanding which is proving invaluable in facilitating others in their own journey of Spiritual Evolution.

  • Trinity Bourne: Trinity developed a keen interest in harmonious living from a young age, enjoying a passionate affiliation with the natural world. About fourteen years ago she experienced a profound spiritual awakening opening her heart to the 'truth' about our inherent nature. This led to a compassionate lifestyle of divine service establishing and leading an environmental group preserving local natural habitats, followed by study of herbal medicine, natural nutrition, and holistic therapies.

    Over the years she has been taken in hand by higher consciousness through countless profound encounters and meditational experiences to learn the intricacies of multiple dimensions through kundalini activation; removal of energy blockages; astral and out-of-body projections; the subtleties of both unity and separation consciousness, past life regressions including their relevance to our current incarnation.

People everywhere are waking up and embarking on the spiritual journey. It is a miraculous process of self discovery and realisation. We're peeling away the veils of society's conditioning and limited thinking. As joyful as it is however, the journey can be quite confusing with many different approaches and terminologies. Whether you attend just the Attended Film Screening or join the Workshop aswell, our "Five Gateways Event" will help bring into clearer perspective where we are on that journey and why our lives are shaping as they are.

The Film will help remove much of the doubt and uncertainty as we pass through these important transitions. And the Workshop (if you choose to come), will integrate a deeper understanding bringing with it, much greater self acceptance, inner peace, expansion and joy. The Event can provide a powerful catalyst of unfolding in our lives, rejuvenation and upliftment. Here below are a few examples of how previous participants have experienced our work...

General feedback

  • "I have to say that I'm still "buzzing" after last weekends course, it was a real challenge to come back to work on Monday! I want to thank you for so many things, for assisting in the internal energy shift, for reminding me of the powers of self awareness, for increasing my inner smile to such an extent that I left the course laughing on both days and to be such a perfect example of oneness, I have been truly inspired. My life has been full of meetings with spiritual leaders, so called experts in the field and it was so refreshing to be in the company of someone who is living completely and wholly in their truth." Kiran
  • "Just to say an enormous thanks for your efforts running the recent Openhand course I attended. I was literally blown away by the incredible energy and I don't know which I enjoyed more, learning and working through the exercises or meeting so many wonderful people. The effects have been nothing short of profound on my own personal growth and I am looking forward more than ever to getting involved with upcoming events and also experiencing more of your incisive understanding." David
  • "Thank you for a wonderful workshop! I thank my guiding Angels for leading me to it! I thank you for you gifts of healing and your guided wisdom, they resonated deeply. I thank you for bringing me back to a state of peace when the last few months have been filled with much turmoil. Thank you for helping me listen to my soul over the chatter of my ego. Thank you for your patience and understanding." Caroline
