Meditation Poem: Small Pebble, Huge Wave

Scott Robinson // April 23rd, 2019

Lightwork Meditation

Some will transcend
Some will only touch the sacred waters for now

Every step of the journey is valid
Even the wanderings of a detour

Freedom cannot be forced, only encouraged

The door opens, then slams shut tight
or
The step over the threshold
with ease

No one can predict which one it will be

How do we know when one is ready?
The warrior only knows
for sure
when it happens

Each step
More Light

Small pebble
Huge wave

The dragon
The mouse

The stillness
The movement

The intent
The release

I see the sun come over the mountain
And I breathe the Light of a new day

 

Meditation Poem: Where Are You

Scott Robinson // March 19th, 2019

24144326428_0d2aee0124_z

It’s time to come home
Back to comfort and bliss
You’ve walked the lands of pain
It’s Spirit that was missed

No longer wandering in constant distraction
Come back to your centre, your power, your divinity

As the traveling ends the journey begins
The core of power
The seat of presence
The place of consciousness

Golden simplicity, opens up timeless peace
You are an ocean of stillness
The forever sea

Being home with pristine clarity
Let go of mind
The endless voices are not you
You are bigger
At home in your Light
The Light

Meditation Poem: Bit by Bit

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: Everything Matters

Scott Robinson // January 22nd, 2019

29194061983_44e59fd7b6_z

Infinite possibilities

 

Every thought recorded,

Every thought etched in forever

 

Every inkling builds the multiverse

 

Unlimited realities

Formed with ease and flow

 

Out of pristine potential

Comes… everything

 

The flash of energy

Constantly turning into reality

 

Always moving,

Even when stillness is being forged

 

Absolute abundance, is our nature

 … It is nature itself

 

Consciousness

Creating

Consciousness

 

Creation

Creating

Creation

 

There are no insignificant moments

 

Everything matters… everything matters

 

Worlds coming into being,

With the blink of an eye

 

Take none of it for granted

 

You are the source, of all that you survey

 

Meditation Poem: Bright and Powerful

Scott Robinson // January 2nd, 2019

29528224020_5971bf36be_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: Flowing Wonder

Scott Robinson // December 17th, 2018

02 Winter Water 2, Chesterman Beach BC Canada 2010

Light caught in the flowing wonder

Blue green turns white with life-force release

To tumble and glide in dangerous ecstasy is the desire of the wholly living soul

 

Every being on the way with staggering diversity

This moment in time opens up to my wishes with power so great it numbs the lies

and only allows truth to reign

 

Today I watch from a distance as life’s simple dramas are performed

What is my next entrance, my next exit?

All will be revealed, my intent is clear

Meditation Poem: Back to Time

Scott Robinson // December 1st, 2018

37287388374_2976e0b283_z

Night end, poured back to time

Earth, spin

Spin earth-spin with pulsing life

Dappled skies, across the mountainous fields of fire

Pain fire

Love fire

The fire of your dreaming….

And in a cold, dank, hollow forest

Far from the masks of man

A soul peers out of ancient eyes

Waiting to be free

Waiting to be free

Waiting to…be

Meditation Poem: Our Potential

Scott Robinson // October 28th, 2018

24144328278_1baf3a4b90_z

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

Meditation Poem: Pristine Possibility

Scott Robinson // September 23rd, 2018

24144251848_7f0467a7f1_z

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!

Meditation Poem: Buoyant in the Manifest

Scott Robinson // August 28th, 2018

After summer’s growth

Comes fall’s release

 

Leaves returning their power

To the earth and water

 

Seasons roll by

Gently caressing, decaying

 

Rebirth

 

Lifetimes flow through

Buoyant in the manifest

 

As Spirit we are still

While time is performed around us

 

The subtle dance of energy

Creating a believable story

 

But we come briefly to this place

 

May we always remember

That time is just an idea

And we swim in shimmering seas

Beyond it

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, 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 Robinson grew up in Calgary and completed a BA in Psychology in 2003 at the University of Calgary, but knew from a young age she loved the west coast. 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.

Since then, Tiffany has been studying meditation intensively, completing Lightwork’s two-year Meditation Teacher Training in 2012 and the three-year Apprenticeship in 2015. She now offers introductory and advanced meditation classes full-time, and is Lightwork’s Operations Manager.

When she’s not teaching classes or sessions online, Tiffany loves to learn about sustainable living, enjoy time with community and investigate the natural world.

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 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.

Now settled in Vancouver and enjoying a much simpler life, Leslie offers Lightwork Level 1 and Level 2 classes, as well as private energy reading-healings. She completed the Level 7 Apprenticeship program at Lightwork in 2021.
