Before inviting you, the reader, to join in the invocation aimed at consecrating this long-awaited feature of our own online sanctuary — an inner courtyard, a haven to dock your ship (or a raft), a place to tie your donkey for some quiet moments with a pot or a cup of tea, to unwind and savor your humanity — I’d like to tell you how it all began… at least how it was perceived from this corner of the Universe, before the bing and the bang of the social media explosion sucked our attention into the vortex of giant enterprises, with gravity stronger than the propelling forces of our sanity.
This is not a lament for the time when letters were written in ink and the envelopes slashed — in my case, with an artisan knife from Uzbekistan — but an invitation to sharpen your sense of direction, along with refining your senses when it comes to a place for some worthwhile time online.
Since then the idea of creating our own online abode, where a spoken or a written word can be savored in the more or less sheltered setting of an old-fashioned Forum, has been our wish — to come true.
And though designed for the needs of our budding spiritual tribe, all passersby are welcome, as long as we observe the customs – no shoes, no open blades inside, no commercial plugins. Have a sip. Inhale. Undo that button, breathe into your tummy. Feel at home and at ease, untie the knots, and let the muse of your self-expression take you over… Have another sip…
