TAUHARA The growing of a spiritual and educational centre
In 1911 in the small, creative village of Havelock North, New Zealand, several Christians met daily in ‘Silent worship’. Harriot Felkin, a member of the group, received guidance that in the future the people in the Southern Hemisphere would take a leading part in the renewal of a damaged world. She was told to look for a suitable site in Taupo to form a Centre for this purpose. In 1969 a property above Acacia Bay was purchased and Tauhara Centre built there. Since then, Tauhara Centre and silent worship has inspired many people to become their True Self.
My English grandparents, Ellen and Allen Walker, after a publicly acclaimed lifetime in London, came to live near our family on Napier Hill, New Zealand, when I was seven years old. For the next seven years they inspired me with everything I hold dear. Eccentric. Creative. Gifted. I learnt from them to open up to subtle, eternal, infinite worlds beyond the visible, with gratitude.
Every culture has a Creation story. Today, Quantum physics shows us that our thoughts and perceptions co create our world in an ever-changing process. We don’t just live in a Universe, the universe lives in us. You might ask, “Who Am I now?” Am I really GOD-stuff in a biodegradable earth body suit?
In my story, on the eighth day of Creation Humankind begins to awaken to the GIFT, their innate capacity to co create. On the ninth day humans heal the inherited splits deep inside, & learn interdependence. On the tenth day people live their True Self and on the eleventh day of Creation, driven by the forces of love, the fragments of the world resonate with each other as conscious co-creators.
