A WONDERFUL HEALING STORY

Sep 5th, 2016 | By

by Ann Merivale I had intended to make my next blog ‘China – Part Two’, but then a number of things intervened. The shock of Brexit was by no means the least of these, but others have already written usefully on that topic, so I should like instead to recount a fascinating story from which

IMPRESSIONS OF CHINA – PART ONE

May 17th, 2016 | By

by Ann Merivale “So long the greatest civilisation on Earth, China is rising again.” So commented Michael Wood in his recent, fascinating, TV series on this extraordinary country. It is already over six months since our return from our ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ trip there, and I am still very busy digesting it. I was prepared for China

EASTER IN 2016

Apr 4th, 2016 | By

by Ann Merivale Sitting last night (March 22nd, the Tuesday of Holy Week) in Hereford cathedral, enjoying a wonderful performance of the St. John Passion by the Hereford Cathedral choir, with superb soloists, I reflected on the significance of this season of the year in the current climate. The Dean of the cathedral had prefaced

Nov 23rd, 2015 | By

On August 21st Ludlow Assembly Rooms showed one of the most moving films that I have ever seen. The Salt of the Earth recounts the life story of the great Brazilian photographer, Sebastiao Salgado.

Oct 2nd, 2015 | By

The last week of July 2015 saw the 300th anniversary of the world’s oldest music festival – that of the Three Choirs, which is held alternately in each of the three cities of Hereford, Gloucester and Worcester. At least the precise date of this great Festival’s beginnings is lost in the mists of time, but

IS TENNIS A SPORT OR AN ART?             As I write, Wimbledon 2015 is just starting, and probably by the time this appears online this year’s champions will be known. I was the worst at sport in my whole school. Hockey in winter and cricket in the summer (when I was terrified of the ball)

Jun 12th, 2015 | By

Impressions of Present-day Italy              Italy – like most countries, I suppose – is a funny mixture. I don’t know it as well as I’d like to (being a graduate in French and Spanish I have inevitably seen more of France and Spain), but every time that I have been there I’ve yearned to see

ARE ADOPTIONS PLANNED BEFORE BIRTH? by Ann Merivale

May 15th, 2015 | By

ARE ADOPTIONS PLANNED BEFORE BIRTH?  In my book DISCOVERING THE LIFE PLAN – Eleven Steps to Your Destiny (6th Books 2012) I discussed in some depth the fact that choice of families in which to incarnate is always made in advance. Obviously when a child is adopted – even more no doubt when it is

SPIRIT GUIDES Something happened last month that prompted me to offer to give a talk on spirit guides to our local sathsang group, which meets monthly and is always on the lookout for new speakers on different spiritual topics. This meeting has now been fixed for April 13th, so I thought I would organise my
