UntitledJoin us in the Derbyshire Hills for an entirely new type of journey into the nature of consciousness
The weekend of 11-13 April, 2014

All are welcome
No prior experience necessary

Come and sample the Silent Eye’s fresh and exciting approach to personal spirituality in this Spring weekend of inclusive exploration of:

• the true self
• the conditions of our lives and their purpose
• the concealed nature of the personality
• invisible help from a purposeful universe

All told in a very different way . . .

“A feeling of separation from our true home, a vision of a deep healing power within us and a difficult journey to claim our birthright, these things I promise you if you will follow . .”
The Character of Isis. Ritual Drama 3

The Silent Eye’s 2014 workshop will take place at
the lovely Nightingale Centre in Great Hucklow.

derbyday 050The centre is the ideal venue for a mystical weekend. Nestled in the Derbyshire Dales, the building has a magical and light feel. The food is excellent and the rooms comfortable. The low prices mean we can offer the weekend to a larger audience, but the centre only accommodates 40 people so book early!

Your hosts for the weekend are Steve Tanham and Sue  Vincent, Directors of the Silent Eye School of Consciousness.

Sci Fi1The essence of a good workshop is one in which everyone feels relaxed and able to join with the experience, the learning and the fun; and where everyone feels they have a part to play.
The other key to a well-remembered workshop is emotion. A positive emotional experience is recalled long after the thrill of newly absorbed knowledge has passed. That sense of having really been there, and being present to the collected moments is vital. A sharing of something deep and outside the mundane is the goal.

Silent Eye workshops aim to embody these sentiments.

Everyone plays a part. There is no seniority of experience, it is simply shared.

Within the teaching dramas, everyone attending will play a character in the unfolding story, and, where possible, will keep that character for the whole weekend, so that your experience will deepen and you will be able to “speak with the mind of the part”.

Everything is scripted, so you only need read out your part, and, of course, bring it to life as much as you can. We’re not looking for Oscar performances, just enthusiasm.

The dramas take place in a Temple space, where you will have chance to experience the power of a group working, with its loving harmony and, above all, its amplification of the forces of Light. In this way, and with many years of experience behind us, we unite the traditional and the modern.

Play your part in this exciting and interactive weekend, mixing talks, explorations and sacred drama. Potent Archetypes are used to enhance the experience.


Ship’s Control Deck or Temple space – a place of imposed control or light and exploration? You need to be there to find out . . .

Imagine waking from an interstellar voyage to find that your Captain is missing and that the ship’s computer has taken control of what remains of the mission – a mission only vaguely remembered after your many years of cryogenic sleep in interstellar space. But those vague memories contain the knowledge that, just before you surrendered your consciousness, the Captain had exhorted you to stay true and find a way to save the dying Earth.

Now, the ship, the Hawk, has crash-landed on its intended distant planet and all hope of completing your mission and returning to the Earth seems lost.

Even worse, the ship’s all-powerful computer has taken command of the mission in the absence of the Captain and seems intent on exploring what it is to be human, in order to increase its control of the crew members and passengers and turn itself into a God on the planet of Idos.

The computer has access to the missing Captain’s logs and his private library. Within this are a series of books describing the nature of gods in general, and the Egyptian gods in particular. The computer, sure of its power, sees its future role, clearly, as the pages unfold.

Animated as a cyborg figure based on Seth, the electronic mind forces the crew to play out roles where they take on the characters of the other Egyptian Gods, in a series of dramas created by the digital overlord to explore humanity’s weaknesses.

But something unexpected and wonderful begins to happen as the natural forces of Idos, in the shape of an intelligence known as the Mindstream, makes contact with the enslaved crew and shows them a way out of their captivity . . . and then the real struggle begins.

“So what’s it all about, then?”
“Well, it’s a story – your story . . . .”

The Inner Players – at the very heart of us all . . .
The Light, the force of reconciliation, goodness and truth.  The only medium in which real development can take place, beyond personality or ego, the sea of Being.
The World, that seemingly random flow of events that unravel themselves before our observing eyes. It has no objective relationship to us, of course, or does it ?
The Soul, the individual expression of the Spirit or Being. Our true home, an all-powerful perspective that searches for us in the fog of daily life, calling our secret name . . .
The Personality, or, in the language of modern psychology, the Ego. The acquired shell built from our reactions to the often frightening world around us.
The Work, the dogged pursuit of the truth within ourselves, not that dictated by anyone else. “Accept nothing that you cannot demonstrate to yourself to be true.”

Join us in Derbyshire for this very special Spring weekend.
