August 7, 1998
To all dearest and closest friends of the spirit..
At 11:00am tomorrow (Saturday) will be a blessing and christening of the as yet unnamed new community space I now call "The Farm". Let us give it a million beginnings, fill it with a vast imagination of the future and bless it as a new pillar for our community.

Incense, music, geometries, banners, virtual worlds, dance, words, wisdom, wishes..


For those who cannot make it, there will be a larger event there in the near future.

PS: Thanks DOM

People Present at the ceremony
