California Connection

Did spend over 3 weeks in early 2016 photographing something called the Three Week Experience. It was organised by a small volunteer group of people for a series of events that Stephen Busby was holding. It incorporated Family Constellations, readings, a systemic training weekend, a men´s group day, and a retreat at Anubhuti retreat center. We lived and worked from a rented airbnb house in Berkeley called The Zen Garden House, and went to places like Rudramandir for the events that were located outside of the house.

You can read about Stephens work on his website, and see a slideshow of few portraits we did after people had participated in a constellation or similar.

It was also an opportunity for me to reconnect the Nyingma organisations I did a 6-month educational program/retreat at -96/97. Visited Nyingma Institute several times, and went up to Ratna Ling which is a beautiful retreat center, and there is also Dharma Publishing, one of the worlds largest buddhist publishing houses, and the Yeshe De Text Preservation Project.

California Connection

Bilder från en vistelse i Kalifornien februari-mars 2016. Jag deltog i något vi kallade Three Week Experience, initierat av Stephen Busby från Findhorn i Skottland. En liten grupp hade tagit på sig att arrangera alla event som pågick i stort sett varje dag dessa tre veckor. De var från Tyskland, Canada, och från olika delar av USA. Jag blev relativt sent tillfrågad om jag ville vara med som fotograf för att skildra det som hände. Med människorna och under sessionerna.

Stephen arbetar med familjekonstellationer, systemiskt arbete, och med readings där han inte ställer upp konstellationer. Ett annat viktigt begrepp han använder är Higher Consciousness, att utforska vad som händer när vi lyssnar in och tar del av de frekvenser som finns tillgängliga men inte så ofta uppmärksammas. Den delen

Du kan läsa mer om Stephens arbete på hans hemsida, och se ett bildspel med några porträtt på personer som just har deltagit i en konstellation.
