Children Who Love The Planet. In a couple of weeks the Nandita’s Dream uploading pages for children will be up.
It’s a place where children can talk about their love of the planet, share images, share dreams and possibilities. I’m excited to hear about them and learn from your vision and clarity. It will be great to see the pictures. We’re also looking forward to all the responses from children in different countries. I’ve been looking at all the wonderful messages from the Nandita’s Dream launch party. So many fun, heartfelt wishes for the book and CD in the world. Thankyou.
Here are some of the children from Stagecoach Southwest Devon who sang on the CD and Brian of Black Umfolosi teaching us a Zimbabwean dance.
Jacqueline Lawes, co-author of Nandita’s Dream is director of Live Love Dream retreats: ”We can all live more fully, dream more deeply and dream bigger and brighter dreams.” It’s good to know it’s there for the grownups.
Jacqueline always said Nandita’s Dream is as important to adults as it is to children. The messages and discoveries in the story are for all of us. We’re getting more feedback from adults about what the story means to them which seems to agree with that. Jacqueline feels the same happens with the CD and the inspirational effects of the songs. Her delicious cooking while we were recording at Drum’s studio has now become legendary and probably contributed to our contented creativity. Here are Jacqueline and Sotcha Moyo of Black Umfolosi at our launch party. You can find out more about her retreats at www.livelovedream.co.uk. She’s working with a remarkable team of facilitators.
What’s your dream? What’s your dream for the world? That’s the question at the heart of our lives here when we’re awake enough to ask it. It’s the question Salassie the shaman asks the children at the end of the “Nandita’s Dream” book. My dreams have changed and grown. As I’ve fulfilled them more have flowered and become
More fruit, more seed, more growing and becoming. Our dreams create the world. Our dreams change. The world changes. I love Oz the tree in Nandita’s Dream. Oz says near the end, “Love has freedom at it’s roots.” I think it’s important to allow our dreams to fulfill and our dreams to change – maybe to expect it for ourselves and others. Expansion thrives on it.
I think what I most adored about the Olympics was the global diversity, sharing our uniqueness and alikeness as people. What a celebration, what a wonder…I love the mix of life on this planet. I love the opportunities to create. I think that’s why I enjoy the fusion that comes in making music with the likes of Sura Susso, Sheema Mukherjee, and Black Umfolosi. Our creativity in meeting and the unique nature of our individual music.
So Annie Lennox’s voice was pure gold in the closing ceremony and Brian May’s rock guitar was beyond anything I’ve heard from a rock guitarist. How did he do it? I once saw Ryoko play piano live in Dartington Hall. When she ran out of keys her fingers continued to play on in the air. She was playing what she could hear and somehow I felt I could hear it too, vibrationally. She took us there with her. I love that these musicians take us somewhere new. Huge thanks to them, to the atheletes, volunteers and creators of the olympics and all who inspire us by living their dreams.
I realise Nandita’s Dream celebration launch is itself a manifestation of the dreams many of us have for the world and the children of the world. As we all sang and talked and gathered our traditions into a new synthesis and celebrated our uniqueness and our togetherness it was such a beautiful meeting of hearts. And the book and CD are just the beginning of an adventure.
The children are taking hold of this and bringing their own new dreams, wishes and knowing while we can support them in being their own wisdom. Here’s Susannah Darling Khan holding up a picture of Memon the wise elder in Nandita’s Dream who tells the story of Source and why we all came to earth. I also want to acknowledge my time with Abraham-Hicks and the answering of some of my questions.
The launch celebration for Nandita’s Dream book and CD was amazing. Black Umfolosi on the last day of their 30th anniversary tour in fantastic voice with Sura Susso on Kora and Lawrence Kelson on cajon, children from the album singing with us and all the people at the party too. Jacqueline Lawes, co-author of Nandita’s Dream was there, Susannah Darling-Khan, Melanie, Tom and Rose who hosted it, Dorrie Joy, Joyaa, Drum and Alice Carfrae, Ruby, Angela and many children and adults.The openhearted joy and love for the children in the world which is at the heart of this project overflowed into something amazing. The global nature of this dream being realised really came home to me. The first book reviews touched Jacqueline and I deeply. Thank you everyone for sharing this offering with us. Heart like a flower – big, gentle and open.
I can see it rushing down catching rainbows in the light. Makes me think about Nandita’s climb up the cliff face to the crystal cave as well.
So all Nandita’s amazing adventures, all those wonderful characters illustrated by Dorrie Joy are out in the world. Just like Nandita bringing her dreams back to the waking world and transforming it. Wow. If you are inspired and like it, please review it. Also great if you can buy in next few days to boost our Amazon rating.
Great news this morning. The book Nandita’s Dream will be available to download from Amazon this Saturday 4th.
It’s a jewel of a moment, pure joy really. Speaking of joy, I decided to put in more of Dorrie Joy’s exquisite paintings so they can emanate with the energy too. We know many children have been wishing for this book and are so glad to be offering it.
The adventures are rooted in our times and trusting your heart’s wisdom and being connected with your true spirit. Nandita’s quicksilver being is inspirational and really “Nandita’s Dream” is about all of us!
