WINTER of 2017 and the via Transformativa



This was our 450th edition of Brindle Style where everything and nothing is sacred.  Behind the scenes we celebrated 50 years of 0riginal Blessing  500 years of Martin Luther's Reformation. And this winter was also the 200th birth day of Henry Thoreau author of  WALDEN'S POND  for whom our healing and post-trauma work forum was named.


Maiia In a 2005 search for the European Indigenous tradition of the Greenman, I found to my amusement that the head of the Inquisition Cardinal Ratzinger, who expelled Rev Dr Matthew Fox from Mother Church is being promoted to Pope and Fox is at Luther's Wittenberg with 95 thesis for the 21st century for a new REFORMATION.



Our children suffer today, not from a lack of knowledge but as the direct result of a point blank unwillingness to listen, and a deep seated refusal to stand corrected. Brindle Style and the WALDEN'S POND explore toxic shame as the rationale.


In Aotearoa this winter - we saw homeless women being mindlessly disparaged by ambos, (these are traditionally the good guys) by police and even a Labour MP chimed in and what was produced - a barrage of facebook drivel.


This was further examplified by the pleas of Seanead O'Connor for recognition of "One of Millions" - THIS ALSO PRODUCED A BARRAGE OF TOXIC FACEBOOK SHIT.



Example of how the willingness to listen and to stand corrected, will lead into the whole hearted maturity that allow humans to act with compassion instead of acting more sick than the hurting person.


Sydney's 24/7 Street Kitchen and Safe Space More and more TRUTH is coming rom the Critical Mass of open hearts and the new paradigm as an elder paradigm.  Veteran Australian peacemaker and social justice campaigner Graeme Dunstan  This winter saw him working as much as ever but in need of surgery.  We're pleased to report Mission Accomplished and he is now in recuperation with hip replacement surgery now COMPLETE.

Regular readers of Brindle Style will know that I care about the dominance culture and its idea of consensus - not at all.  However, I am beginning to see some common ground open up. Six years on from 2011 and Occupy.  The idea 'consensus' appears more plausible for the European diaspora than I would have previously envisaged."   Maiia   ABOUT US


To international news British labour leader Jeremy Corbyn is one breath of fresh air in a smog of prevarication. His reflection on the Chilcott Report into the Invasion of Iraq acknowledges the Millions of people who turned out to tell the powers that should not be George Bush and his mob a sycophantic cronies are war profiteers at best. The whole idea - an abombanation.
