An unhewn path
What we are looking for is something old and something new at the same time. It is something old because we want to take up and carry on the heritage of millennia. We want to follow the path of all those people who, over all the millennia and cultures, have escaped the turmoil of superficial life and have devoted themselves entirely to the search for this divine mystery in monasteries, ashrams or hermitages, sitting, wandering, begging or following their own paths.
At the same time, it is something new, because we live in a new time, with different knowledge backgrounds, new moral concepts, an as yet unknown bringing together of knowledge from the most diverse cultures. And in all of this, we believe that there must be a new formulation and a new way of living of the old, which has yet to be found and developed in its new form and aesthetics. This is exciting – and challenging. It needs people who are willing to engage wholeheartedly in this adventure – sustained only by the trust that it is the ‘great Mother’ herself who can and will carry this new attempt and who will guide us on this pilgrimage.
