Celebration 2012

by Karin Becker, Teacher, Mullumbimby

Recently I went to an end of year celebration held by Universal Medicine. Throughout the year they provide talks on Esoteric Medicine and offer a number of excellent healing courses presented by Serge Benhayon.

This afternoon turned out to be very different. Universal Medicine students had put together a show consisting of a very unique mix of musicians, singers, dancers and comedians. As it seems, only a few artists ever had any formal training, but that did not stop anybody from being very creative and expressing from their totality. 

It was very impressive to watch artists on a stage having such a clear level of inner stillness – who were not performing because they needed the audience approval for their own gratification and egotistic elevation. Instead they were choosing to express directly from their hearts while sharing from a sense of fullness within themselves, their experiences of life, love and the universe. The applause they received was more needed for the observers to show their appreciation than it was asked for by the artists.

So we were graced by awesome people with great music, wonderful voices, meaningful lyrics, very enjoyable playfulness and sharp and witty comedy.

The highlight for me was a chorus of men who had been practising with and were guided by Chris James, a local musician/singer who is well known internationally. Even though they only started singing together a short while ago, there was a feeling of strong gentleness and heartfelt connection within this group… something I have never experienced before observing a group of men doing any activity together.

It was not just a fleeting moment: they were able to stay in that with each other and kept expressing from this inner space of deep male warmth.

Being a woman, I have had many experiences of men being in a certain dominance one way or another. None of this energy was even remotely present in the group.

To be able to feel these men move together in an energy so extraordinary and new was remarkable, heart-warming and very enjoyable. It was a great pleasure for me to be on the receiving end.

  1. To read your experience brings a deep appreciation to the beautiful performances and presentations that we get served almost every month, it is deeply supporting our development back to who we truly are.

  2. Loved what you shared here Karin, I too have so enjoyed the many heart warming performances coming from the students in the light and love of their beingness in such a joy filled way. When men can come together and express from their deep tenderness with each other it is indeed beautiful to behold.

  3. So true Karin, having experienced another amazing end of year concert by Universal Medicine students last night it is a beautiful celebration for everyone to appreciate and feel the loving connection between us all.

  4. I remember distinctly when the Men’s choir came on stage, it moved me to tears, to feel the quality within and between these men was one of those unforgettable moments – it reflected to us something entirely gorgeous and hugely appreciated.

  5. I will have to find a way to see the male choir you talk about here, as you say, it is very rare to come across such a lack of dominance within a large group of men. The more we experience and witness things like this the more we know we too can be the change we want to see in the world, it simply has to start with us taking responsibility for what we say, do and think knowing that it all affects the all.

  6. Nothing compares to true celebration, for it is pure and natural with no need to compensate with cheap fillers (e.g. alcohol) to make it more enjoyable.

  7. It’s pretty extraordinary when a group of men get together and can just be with each other without feeling inadequate or needing to show anyone up etc. When the equality is felt by the whole group, it’s just magical.

  8. To be on the receiving end of a man or a woman who does not dominate or impose in any way but presents with absolute stillness and total respect for another, is sadly not so common these days, however it is a blessing that inspires us and allows us to be free and then to do and be likewise with others, perhaps beginning a domino effect that might just bring back our natural and innate way of being back to the world again.

  9. I love your appreciation for all the performers. It is quite unique to have so many different performances and not having to compare or judge which one is the best and seeing how every one of them brings something valuable in a different way.

  10. Sounds like a celebration of equality. I love to hear stories of Men being in their true power, not the kind that society and hollywood promotes, but the kind where they are solid within themselves and can appreciate that they are awesome, gentle and equal to all.

  11. What a difference it is to watch and receive entertainment and feel blessed by being left alone in your seat and not imposed upon by the artists wanting recognition. Thus is the healing offered by Universal Medicine in all its presentations.

  12. Just singing from the depths of who we are, needing nothing, just sharing the sheer enjoyment of self expression is a joy to feel and behold.
