Details: We are the Community of Silo’s Message in Kilkenny.
We meet every Monday night between 6.30-8.30pm. We are still looking for our own space, until then we are using a baby-massage yoga studio, called Super Mummies, in Kilkenny.
Sometimes we also hold workshops, which can vary from couple of hours, to 1-2 days long,
Our meditations or ceremonies as we call it, are community based. We are sitting on chairs, in a circle. before our meetings we prepare the space for our meditation together, and tidy up together, creating an atmosphere together. So it’s not like a meditation class, on yoga matts, lead by a teacher. Our meetings are gently “led” by our Silo’s Message messengers, like myself. In our community we get to know each other, we are connected and interested in each other’s lives.
Therefore we always chat a bit before the meditation, to know how we are all doing, to “warm up”. And because it is important to us.
We nearly always do the meditation called the “service”, that connects us with our life force, so it’s also called the “experience of the force”.
If one of us needs extra support because going through difficulties, we also do the “wellbeing ceremony”, by request of one our friends, even if they are present, our request by one of us.
After meditation, we also talk about Silo’s message and related topics, like the meaning of life, life and death, about bringing unity of thought, feelings and actions, about what is sacred to us, and much more….
Your experience and thoughts and feelings matter to all of us. It doesn’t matter what belief system you have or you come from.
We are more concerned about mutual support and respect, trying to be active nonviolent within ourselves and towards others – we aspire treating each other like we want to be treated.
Lots of inner peace, life force and joy to you!

Well Being Ceremony for Japan

Kilkenny Square, Ireland – 3/19/2011
Title: Dear Friends!
I sent 70 text messages on Friday and also put it on Face Book, and announced it at Story -telling Night on Saturday night.
About 25 of us gathered in Kilkenny’s main Square, The Parade, at 5pm this Sunday to hold our Well Being Ceremony for Japan..
8 Japanese people also came, amongst them many living locally, many of them are working in Camphill Rudolf Steiner School, which is well-known local chain of communities, living from donations and volunteer based, taking care of people in special needs. Some only arrived to live and work there only 2 weeks ago, some are working and living there 8-20 years ago. The rest of the participants were mixed nationality and age, Irish, Israeli, Korean, French, English and Congolese, all living in Kilkenny, Ireland.

Some local people came and amongst them 2 women like to organize a coffee morning, where we could all chat and an other man would like to bake cakes to sell as charity and send the money to Japan.

At the beginin of e ceremony I sensed, it is important to say, if someone would rather do their own prayer, according to their religion or would rather not follow our ceremony, jut be with us, to feel free to do so.

Couple of the participants said, they felt how grateful they are for having gathered and done this ceremony. There were two girls from Tokyo, who looked really worried, (not surprisingly), but were smiling at the end. At the beginning one could cut the air from the tension, it was so quiet.

The atmosphere has “melted” by the end of the ceremony, people just didn’t want to move or leave. People I asked said it was good experience to do it. Many were talking, enquiring about the situation in Japan, shared their worries and hopes.

We will repeat the ceremony next Sunday, same time, and same place, because requested by the participants.

Big hug from Krisztina
