“Too often in the west we fail to realize that even in eastern disciplines the spiritual life is not meant as an escape from the worldly life. There is karma to be fulfilled on earth, within the dharma of necessity.”
James Hillman

We had just finished final preparations of this space in Barcelona for Shahar’s Tune project during March 2008. Sonia, the owner of the studio who was also a key collaborator in this project, had just brought in for Shahar the CD (the soundtrack of a wonderful movie The Life of Others) and it was playing in the background. We didn’t have a video camera so I used my cellular to capture this movie.

After this I sat down with tears in my eyes. It was a divine experience not many people will get to witness in person. I was also in pain – I remember thinking to myself “I love photography, where my heart expands and I experience joy & fulfillment”. Even though I was in Barcelona, completely immersed in creation, I was experiencing friction and difficulty – my freedom to pursue this work felt (and still feels) threatened. Over the past year I have done very little creative work. When this video was taken I wished I had a decent video camera to work with, now I am simply hoping to find a way, a space and a capacity to get back to the studio.
