I’m Staying Here

Scott Robinson // August 3rd, 2015

Bumblebee Bliss #1

 

Within the moment is eternity

Within without, is abundance

Within stillness is flow

Within nothing is everything

 

“I’m staying here”

What a simple statement with profound consequences

 

How okay is it to have your journey?

Be inward

How okay is it to have your holiday inside the moment?

Your vacation not vacant in the least

 

The non-action unfolds

With infinite detail

Revealing its treasures

 

It is quite simply bliss

Steady As She Goes

Scott Robinson // July 1st, 2015

May Flower

It’s okay to live a simple life

 

Being of service is an honourable path

 

Another day ends

One of the many that make up a life

 

As darkness falls

We believe in the new light of dawn

 

I’ve experienced myself in many ways

But in the end it is the service that matters

All healing is self healing

 

Helping others to be free

Creating my own freedom

 

I know the direction

I will continue to walk this path

 

In the manifest

On the astral

In times of joy

In times of challenge

 

The way is clear

I can read the signs

 

I know I am helping

 

Steady as she goes

Song of a Life

Scott Robinson // June 7th, 2015

Flower daylea flash

Look at the Winter’s truth, it’s alive
Look at the Summer’s bounty, it thrives
Look at your heart as it touches a moment in Spring
Look at the abundance of Autumn, it soars to the sky to sing
In your garden
On your beach
In your soul
It’s the light you reach
You look for the beauty in this fragile world
Seeing the sacred as it is unfurled
It is a song of a life, intimate with nature
It is a song of life, bright and mature

It Is That Simple

Scott Robinson // May 5th, 2015

May poem

Blue envelopes me

Gold saturates my existence

The endless, timeless sea

Reaches out and cradles me in its nurturing wash

Time is just an idea

We play in it like a child

Creating realities in the sand on a beach

That’s all there is

It is that simple

The Request

Scott Robinson // April 9th, 2015

01 The Stars Rays 1, The Georgia Straight, BC, Canada 2010

Always available

But we do need to request

 

The request of light

 

To swim in pristine gold

Outside of time

 

Beyond the limits of the manifest

 

The request

 

The request that changes everything

Such an amazing creation…freedom is

 

It requires you to request it

 

Because

 

You are free not to

Glorious

Scott Robinson // March 3rd, 2015

Cherry blossoms for poem

Another day dawns

Hopes and dreams awaken once more

 

Another spring is born

It suggests a future of light

 

Another vow spoken

Integrity still alive

 

Another heartbeat

The reality of the manifest

 

Another being comes into body

The journey continues

 

Another sunray

Another dewdrop

Another morning breeze

Another glance to the sky

 

And source showers down on all

With glorious abundance

Our Potential

Scott Robinson // February 6th, 2015

Picture 194 

Many walk this earth

Eyes closed to reality

Wanting liberation

But creating limitation

 

There is a bigger world

Are we too shortsighted to see it?

There is a higher ground

Why are we not trying to reach it?

 

The time for waking is now

Before it is too late

The time for action is now

To live what we believe

 

We are sacred beings

Living in a sacred world

Let us honour this

And live up to our sacred potential

Change

Scott Robinson // January 8th, 2015

 

04 Layers of Reality 4, Howe Sound, BC, Canada 2009

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

It’s a process
It’s one step at a time
The path winds with hills and valleys

And yes, some demons to slay
Around suspicious corners

There are views to stir up tears
Moments of transcendence

And of course thousands of turnoffs
Which take a spiritual warrior to endless distraction

The way is bright
And with practice, diligence and follow through
The warrior gets brighter every step

Having Source more and more
Unlimited Source
Joy Source
Love Source

Meditation Poem: Validate Your Journey

Scott Robinson // November 6th, 2014

Big Space

The way you walk
The way you suffer
The way you look to the sky with wonder

The way you grow
The way you shine
The way you feel fear and then do it anyway

You are a spark of Source
A brilliant luminescent being
You are here to be love
You are here to bring light into this reality

Walk your way
Suffer your way
Grow your way
Shine your way
Validate your journey

Yes to the unlimited expressions of the Divine

The myriad of unique paths

The way of the internal fire

Scott Robinson

Scott Robinson is the founder and spiritual director of Lightwork Spiritual Development, based on Gambier Island, B.C. For more than 30 years, Scott’s spiritual evolution has been his life focus, along with helping others discover themselves as spiritual beings.

Even in earlier stages of his life Scott lived outside the confines of mainstream society as a hippie kid, musician, video artist, photographer, poet and world traveller. Spiritually aware from childhood, he could see energy, and he knew there was a bigger picture than the material pursuits of life.

His spiritual purpose took shape in his early twenties when he discovered a meditation style that was an immediate fit. He dove deeply into spiritual studies, deepening his clairvoyant abilities and learning the art of self-healing.

Scott is constantly pushing the boundaries of spiritual knowledge. Through teaching, writing and photography, he empowers others to become conscious, bright spiritual beings on the path to freedom.

Scott is also Chair of the Board, chief visionary, and manager of the Lightwork Ecovillage, the Gambier Island sacred site that is home to the Lightwork practice.

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) and is now a self-employed bookkeeper.

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.

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

After working for a variety of youth-serving organizations and educational retreat centres, including Big Brothers Big Sisters of Calgary and Area, Naramata Centre and Hollyhock, she took her first meditation class in 2007. It sparked a lifelong commitment and inspired a move to Vancouver in 2008.

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.

She then packed up and moved to Vancouver to continue her studies, completing Lightwork's Level 6 Teacher Training Program in 2017.

Meditation has helped Elizabeth let go of fears and embrace all aspects of herself. She's excited that teaching now gives her the chance to offer the Lightwork techniques to other people.
