Phoenix Dynamics are open dynamics, organized by the Phoenix Fellowship, where you are welcome to visit and find out what our school has on offer. You may discover a spiritual teaching which suits our current time. Our school offers many ways of working and teachings based on ancient, esoteric wisdom, leading to new understanding of the human design and our function within the greater scheme of Life.
Maybe you have always felt somewhat dissatisfied, sometimes even desperate in the going on motions of growing up, getting an education, finding a job, perhaps raising a family.
Of course these have consumed large portions of your time and energy, and for some time provided valuable experience. But, ever so often, you are confronted with the traps and emptiness of habitual living, or with the impermanence of what we are led to believe would never end. Maybe when you look at the stars, or feel the power of nature, you have asked:
What is this life for? What moves this incredible universe? What are the mysteries of life and death? What is consciousness? What is the calling of the Great Teachings within the world religions and philosophy?
Throughout history there have been human beings who kept alive an inner quest, driven by these big human questions. They changed their lives according to the answers they found. Spiritual schools in different places in the world have anchored these endeavours and their manifestations in the form fitting their time and place.
These manifestations are what we now know as essence art, holy scriptures, music, healing, dance, science and religion and were foremost meant as signposts for those human beings who are ready to pursue the human quest themselves.
The Phoenix Fellowship is a school for personal and human development with a spiritual teaching relevant for our time. It exists since 1987 and since 1994 the centre is located on Landgoed Steenbergen in Wapenveld (Veluwe). Currently there are 130 fellows.
We practise our way together in a school, but know that you can only travel if you are truly alone, which is already a developed state of being. We need others to travel with, to remind us that we are not perfect and to inspire us with our successes, and to increase the amperage of the grace that enables us to work.
At our centre, which we call Source, fellows meet and work together on a weekly basis in various meetings with smaller and larger groups. We also meet for specific work with the artisans in the workshop 'the Forge', with the choir 'Vox Essencia' or music group 'Baraka'.
We organize activities at Source for those who are interested in our work and offer many other possibilities to meet us in various cities in the Netherlands. Throughout time many people have met us and have been uplifted and inspired by our teaching and the work we do.
You are welcome to meet us at Source or attend introductory meetings.
When you meet us, you can expect courtesy, a respectful working dynamic and our hospitality. We ask for your openness and a genuine enquiry into our work. Then you may find out whether this is a path for you to travel.
The program that we offer you is centered around three main themes:
These themes we will approach through study and lesson, but also through essence theatre and practical work. The results from a true spiritual journey should lead to a balance of greater understanding, depth of feeling and increased ability. What do we mean when we say the Universe, the Human and... You? Let's take a closer look:
Every spiritual school throughout history has recognised that we live within an ordered universe. And, that while there may be a place for change, the fact that we can appear and wonder about the universe is indicative of this innate order.
Therefore one of the most important starting places is to study our greater home: the universe. Its vastness and seeming randomness may appear perplexing to many, but if you know how to look you can start to perceive patterns. These patterns can lead you eventually to what we would call the Natural Laws, a set of principles that govern the way the universe operates.
A spiritual journey should be based upon objective criteria, not man-made or temporary views. Understanding the Natural Laws allow you to do so.
We humans in our design are governed by these universal patterns as well, we live in a most amazing machine, our body. We accept that my kidney works the same as your kidney. How else could a surgeon work reliably? But what about your emotions, your thoughts, your aura, to name just a few? Our knowledge of our physical body has greatly increased, but sadly our understanding of our electrical body and its workings lays far behind. And yet these are also part of the same amazing machine.
Too often in our world today, people seek their uniqueness in the wrong places. The design and operation of your body (both physical and electrical) is more or less the same as all other human bodies. This does not mean that it is easy to understand all its complexities. It does however mean that understanding the human design allows for a far richer, more profound and effective journey of discovery we call life.
Each human being has the potential of an unique life and contribution. This uniqueness however has to be worked for, has to be uncovered in self. Each one of us is born with an unique blend of influences. But living in our world forces a person to have to adapt to the unwritten rules of our time and place. And so we often lose touch with the real uniqueness of ourselves. What in you is worth keeping and what can you do without? What in you needs strengthening and what needs to be let go off? And more specifically, how? This is why development is essentially personal. It requires you to apply the understandings of the universe and the human design to yourself, personally. In the end the meaning of any spiritual teaching for you personally has to be whether it yields concrete and measurable results in you.
And you..? How are we getting on? Has something stirred in your inner life? Does it all sound rather strange, but somehow it rings true? Does it cause more questions? Then decide; do you want to answer your own questions or do you want to meet us?
A way to approach a spiritual journeyThroughout history humans have asked themselves important questions. What is my life for? Is there a greater meaning and purpose to be found? Are you sometimes wondering where to find the keys to answer these questions? The journey to travel is a journey to the centre inside oneself. This kind of travelling needs as much of a roadmap and signposts as travelling abroad. The Phoenix Taro provides exactly that, and much more. Knowledge of the Taro is not necessary, an open mind is.
