Meditation Poem: Try Belongs to Yesterday

Scott Robinson // June 20th, 2017

29527068400_76852fb8b9_z

Push

Strive

Strain

My body fights for control

Sweetest ease

Lightest ease

As Spirit, this is all there is

As Spirit, I live in ease, in the fresh air of flow

Without friction

Without holding

Without try

I do or I do not

Try belongs to yesterday

Yesterday fades on the horizon line,

And transforms into this movement in time

Today I play outside of effort…

Come what may

Meditation Poem: Opposite Shores

Scott Robinson // May 14th, 2017

Lightness sees what is

Outside of good and bad, right and wrong

 

Grief and joy need the yin and the yang in order to be

Lightness is beyond these dichotomies

 

All originates as Light

All will return to Light

 

The journey of consciousness

Requires opposite shores to exist

 

To create choice

Something to navigate by

 

Lightness just is

Nowhere and everywhere

At the same time

 

The journey is extremely important

Until there is no journey anymore

 

Only the forever now

Only Lightness

Meditation Poem: Change

Scott Robinson // April 11th, 2017

25925476604_ac6fde2395_z

The leap of change

To let go of one season and embrace another

To destroy an old way of being and create anew

To know that all is fleeting

Only Source is forever

 

As the ages turn we move and flow

 

The universe expands and contracts

Like a single heartbeat

A single heartbeat

 

Constant change

Nothing in any universe is motionless

 

Wheels of light

Wheels of dark

 

In what way do you want to travel?

In this vibrant ever-changing wash of energy

 
 

Meditation Poem: It’s About

Scott Robinson // March 14th, 2017

The Path to Source

It’s about being in the world

With an intimate experience of the present

And a clear view of the future

 

It’s about deep self-affinity

And a passion for loving others without attachment

 

It’s about reveling in this part of the voyage

And being ever-conscious of the course setting

 

It’s about creating liberation of one Spirit

And assisting others in this with truth and humility

 

It’s about clarity, integrity and diligence

 

It’s about doing your part

Inwardly and outwardly

Meditation Poem: Selfless

Scott Robinson // February 14th, 2017

29373401600_4d2e393852_z

It is much bigger than emotion

 

It transcends the moment

 

The location is insignificant

It can exist everywhere at once

 

People will do anything in its pursuit

But it can never be captured

It is free

 

It is completely selfless

 

Non-attached

 

Everything of light

is forged from it

 

And available to all who have the humility and courage to hold it

 

Unbridled power

 

Pure potential

 

It is unlimited, vast and transcendent

 

It is love

 

Meditation Poem: Bright and Powerful

Scott Robinson // January 10th, 2017

29785266396_ae45e1583c_z

Like the young morning’s light
Orange gentle warming
The giddy excitement of the new
Grounded in the ancient
A bright and powerful dawn
The darkness slowly bleeding away
Revealing the places longing to be filled

Meditation Poem: Circle of Light

Scott Robinson // December 6th, 2016

Sun sky

A Sacred Circle of Light

 

Spiritual beings come together

to share the light with each other

 

To celebrate life force

To celebrate the sacred

To celebrate the spirit

 

Each being on their unique path

Each being on the journey

Each being evolving

 

As we navigate the waters

As we traverse the hills and valleys

 

Let us always remember

Each step of the journey is the goal

And having each moment is the art

 
 

Meditation Poem: I Weep

Scott Robinson // November 5th, 2016

26234125766_c72cb99f58_z

I weep
The big fire
Ultimate creativity
Absolute love

Its art is in every breath

Its pleasure is in every beat of the heart

Saffron skies rest on the edge of eternity

Jade seas flow in this moment in time

Every day I can see more of this place

Every instant extends out beyond previous perception

As the fire burns
As the sparks fly
As the seeds are sown out into the infinite

This wholeness opens up to me
And I weep in its beauty

 

 

Meditation Poem: Bit by Bit

Scott Robinson // October 11th, 2016

29820147525_cfc567db71_z

Here in this moment

Here in this time and place

I tune to truth

I walk its path, striving to do all things from the highest integrity

I am, where I am, with it

Everyday I stand up for clarity from a higher place

Every instant my intent affects my reality

The unconscious players

The unseen production

The manifest veneer

The ocean of light

And bit by bit I am more free

 
 

Meditation Poem: Pristine Possibility

Scott Robinson // September 11th, 2016

03  Release 3, Ecovillage BC 2007

 

Another autumn falls

Nature slows right down

The rest before the rebirth

The stillness before the movement that begins again

 

Cycles within cycles

 

A spark of Source begins the journey

A wild and diverse path

Full of drama

Full of unconscious obsessions

 

Lifetimes of desire

Lifetimes of maneuvers

Attached to all things

Strangling freedom

 

Passionate for liberation

Completely baffled

Detours upon detours

 

And learning all the way

 

 Until finally…

At last…

 

The wake-up call

The beginning of the end

The flow back to light

Contribution of consciousness

To the whole

 

Unique experience added to the unlimited

 

The ego falls away

Personality deconstructed

 

Absolute peace

It is complete

 

The circle now, without wanting

 

The end…and…the beginning become one

 

It is done…

 

Then…a new spark of Source sets out

 

The state?

 

Pristine possibility!

Scott Robinson

In 1995, after years of spiritual study, Scott founded Lightwork Spiritual Development, of which he is the Spiritual Director. Since 1995 he has been teaching intensively.

Scott believes that on a core level every spiritual teacher of integrity is teaching the same thing, because the core spiritual principles never change. However, there are unlimited ways to express these principles, and every spiritual teacher and practice has its own unique flavour. Finding a flavour that one likes is the task of the seeker.

Scott is also an artist, musician and poet, and has traveled the world extensively. He feels his purpose is to be on his spiritual path and to assist others on their path. His teaching is safe and supportive with amusement and integrity.

Krista Love

Krista first discovered Lightwork thanks to a tiny poster on Hornby Island. At the time she was practicing yoga and writing a play, but yearned for her true calling. Something about that little poster spoke to her and she hitchhiked to a Lightwork Healing Space event. Soon after she took Lightwork Level 1.

Her love for the practice was so immediate she packed her bags and moved to Vancouver to continue her studies, despite having no job or place to live. She made her way through several years of intensive training, graduating from the Lightwork Teacher’s program in 2003, and later becoming the first person ever to complete the apprenticeship program.

Krista says Lightwork allowed her to transform into the person she always knew she could be. As a teacher, she loves helping people tune into themselves as Spirit and bringing levity to any situation.

Krista teaches a wide range of classes including Lightwork Levels 1 to 3.5, Lightwork Moving Meditation and classes geared for women and parents.

Prior to Lightwork Krista attended theatre school, became a yoga teacher and received a diploma in clowning.

Alison Cretney

Alison has been practicing Lightwork meditation since 2007. As a certified Lightwork teacher, she offers classes suitable to first-time meditators or anyone who has practiced other meditation styles. You can attend her classes in beautiful Nelson, BC, or by phone or Skype.

Alison has found Lightwork's clarity, ease and potency to be transformative in all aspects of her life including parenting, work, relationships and stress.

She has a Masters in Strategic Leadership Toward Sustainability which she applies in collaborative projects seeking solutions for climate change.

Julia Watson

Julia offers meditation and consulting services for organizations and individuals.

She started her conscious spiritual journey in her mid-twenties but it wasn’t until she came across Lightwork in 2002 that she found a meditation practice that really worked for her.

Julia completed Lightwork’s seven levels of training in 2010. She has been joyfully teaching meditation classes and offering private energy readings since then.

She was previously the Program Director at Hollyhock (Canada’s leading educational retreat centre), the Director of Operations at Communicopia Internet, and a producer of the Web of Change conference.

Julia received a Bachelor of Business Administration from Simon Fraser University in 1994. She received a permaculture design certificate in 2000.

Julia Thiessen

Julia started taking Lightwork classes by phone from Winnipeg in 2004. The classes rocked her world so thoroughly she moved to Vancouver to continue her meditation studies, eventually graduating from Lightwork's most advanced program, 'Level 7: The Apprenticeship' in 2012.

Her move to the West Coast allowed her to become involved in the Lightwork Ecovillage, where she continues to deepen her meditation practice and learn life lessons (like...you really can grow kale year round!).

Julia is a certified Lightwork Teacher. She offers Lightwork Level 1 and Level 2 classes for beginners, as well as private energy reading sessions.

She brings creativity to the Lightwork administration team, and manages two annual meditation retreats: the summer '9-Day Dharma Healing', and 'Winter Light Week'.

She has an intuitive and studied understanding of all things green, arising from her work in therapeutic gardening at BC Children's Hospital and other locations around Vancouver.

Cathy Belgrave

When Cathy signed up for her first Lightwork class, she entered brand new territory. Coming from a scientific background, meditation was well outside her normal repertoire but she felt compelled to try it.

Without even being able to describe how, she shifted perceptions in all parts of her life and began making decisions that decreased stress. Encouraged, she thought she would keep meditating until it no longer felt like a fit. That day never came. She’s now a committed Lightwork practitioner and teacher.

Cathy offers Lightwork Level 1, Level 2, private classes and energy reading-healings. She blends her passions for writing, teaching and meditation by offering creative writing workshops for children and adults.

Darci Rosalie

Darci discovered Lightwork meditation in her last month of nursing school. She realized she wanted a totally new way of coping with stress, rather than relying on old, unhealthy habits.

So she turned down a fancy job in California with a big signing bonus and season’s tickets to her favourite football team. Instead she registered for Lightwork's beginners class and never looked back.

Throughout her healing journey Darci has witnessed how meditation has the power to shift tough situations and heal what needs healing.

Her favorite thing about being a Lightwork teacher is the simplicity and presence of being in the moment. The big and small of the universe come into focus and make room for significant awareness and healing.

Darci graduated from the Lightwork Apprenticeship program in March 2014. She offers energy reading sessions and meditation classes in a loving, supportive environment.

Tiffany Robinson

Tiffany has been studying meditation intensively for the past 9 years. She is a certified Lightwork meditation teacher and a graduate of Lightwork's most advanced program, the three-year Level 7: Apprenticeship Program.

Tiffany sits on the Lightwork Ecovillage Board of Directors and splits her time between Vancouver and the Lightwork Ecovillage on Gambier Island with her husband Scott and his daughter Cloe.

Her classes are open to teens and adults.

Victoria Smith

Victoria was searching for a way to bring ease and a sense of direction to her life. She signed up for a Lightwork class in 2006 and it was a clear fit.

She brings a deep, joyful commitment to practicing and teaching meditation. Through it, she found a way to create the fun-filled, community-oriented life she always wanted.

Victoria offers group classes, private classes and energy reading-healing sessions. She is currently enrolled in Lightwork’s Level 7 program, apprenticing to founder Scott Robinson.

Victoria is also a spa owner, fly-fisher and nature-lover. She spends free time at the Lightwork Ecovillage, a sustainable meditation community on Gambier Island.

Jacqueline Voci

Jacqueline first learned to meditate as an antidote to stress and a crazy-busy lifestyle in the tech and PR industries. As she gradually made it part of her daily routine, an entirely new way of experiencing life emerged.

In March 2014, she completed Lightwork’s two-year meditation teacher program and began its most immersive course, a three-year apprenticeship to founder, Scott Robinson.

Jacqueline teaches Lightwork's beginner classes (Levels 1 & 2) and offers meditation workshops for companies and organizations. She has hosted workshops for the Dalai Lama Center for Peace & Education, UBC Faculty of Medicine, BC Cancer Research Centre and BCIT Student Association.

She is also a writer and communications consultant.
