Beginning the Seeding Journey

From December 2015 we started the seeding journey for Simorgh Wisdom School. Initially we started with a dream, and an intention of making and publishing a book that captures the essence of the school and the guidelines for creating it. We shared our dream and intention with our wider communities and received many blessings including around 2122+5000 USD of financial support.

Simorgh Story

Simorgh Story

Upon facing crisis, the birds acknowledge the need for a wise leadership. They decide to journey together to meet the wisest bird Simorgh. Following the river of the soul, they pass through seven challenging valleys. Passing through each challenge, they awaken to the inner and collective wisdom...

Wisdom School

Wisdom School

The school explores, creates and curates the conditions for the emergence of a soul-centric learning eco-system. It supports us in reclaiming our individual and collective authority to make meaning from the soul, to relate from the it and to live by it.

Bridging

Bridging

While geographically bridging the west and the east, the school bridges the wisdom present in our bodies, hearts and lineages with authentic expressions. It supports remembering our root-wisdom & collaborating in making new stories. Stories that serve the well being of ourselves, all life forms on our planet, and the future generations.

Crowdsourcing

Crowdsourcing

We started the journey with a crowdfunding campaign, through which we have received blessings, prayers, financials, and many other forms of support from the wider field; our Support Cloud. The support was a major enabler for us to come together in person, from many parts of the planet.

We came together!

As we proceeded through exchanging emails and online conversations, we realised the importance of coming together in person, to enrich our seeding with a lived experience.

We came together from Estonia, Iran, United States, Greece, England, Turkey (Istanbul, Fethiye, Akhisar) to a fisherman's town called Dalyan, on the western edge of Turkey, where Anatolia and Aegean meet. We prepared the home for others to arrive. On the arrival day, we celebrated Nowrooz (spring equinox), welcoming the spring and the new cycle of life.

We spent four days together, sitting in conversations, sharing stories and dreams, singing and dancing, having amazing food, walking and meditating by the Aegean, caring for each other's needs... and basically getting to know each other at a deeper level, as a learning community. Starting our seeding journey with a lived experience.

In the document below Marian Brehmer has captured what we have started to see collectively.

SIMORGH WISDOM SCHOOL - A VISION 

 

Who are we?

Meet us in this photo... with diverse lineages, backgrounds and generations. From twenty two to sixty four years of age, we come from Germany, England, Iran, Greece, Turkey, Bolivia, Russia, Estonia and United States. With all that diversity, we share the passion for discovering new pathways, remembering wisdom, conscious living, reading Rumi's poetry, meeting the land and the people of Anatolia, contributing to the well being of life on our planet, and meeting the mystery.

Together we are exploring the way of Simorghing...

    What do we see now?

    The sensing journey continues...

    Right now we are sensing our way forward. How to bring all that we can see, personally and collectively, into clear expression? When are we going to gather again? What, when , how and with whom to share different levels of our explorations?

    We are seeing that a book as a container can not capture the wide range of expressive forms of our group, and also the multi-level exploration we are engaged with. Some of our soul expressions are with sound and music, body movement, videography, ritual and...

    We are seeking our way towards meeting the initial intention we communicated with our wider network, and ways of communication that can honor the wholeness of our explorations. This website will serve as an open and flexible container, with new sections that can evolve constantly. This whole prcess of seeding the School is showing itself to us, as we move and learn with it.
