For the last two years it has not been possible for us to have our Family Camp on the hilltop behind the Temple. We have been sad about this, but it was a joyous time for Jenny Dent when she visited the campsite, not too far from New Lands, to which our families have been led. What thrilled and amazed Jenny was the feeling that at the inner level it was somehow an extension of the aura which encompasses the land at New Lands! We know that geography is not the same in spirit! Jenny also felt the very close angelic link with the beautiful land which surrounds our Temple of the Golden Rose in Texas. Rather like the land in Texas, our new campsite is set in many acres of beautiful park/woodland, and has views of the panorama of the South Downs (this whole area, in which New Lands is also set, has recently been designated a National Park and area of outstanding natural beauty).
Many campers came over to New Lands for the Family Service in the Temple and for a healing service later in the week, so that the physical link with New Lands is kept strong.
Besides it being enormous fun, there is a wonderful feeling of heart-felt connection with all people and with the natural world on the camp, and we give a very special thank you to our wonderful Family Helpers who have enabled so many adults and younger people to come together for a week under canvas and under the Star!
Heart of Light Attunement
The Lodge is taking part in an initiative which originated with the One Spirit Alliance. Organisations and communities who work with the light are all invited to participate in a new attunement at 9 pm every night. For White Eagle people, this simply means giving a new priority to this one of the ‘magical’ hours and just being really careful to ensure that at this time a steady ray of light goes forth from each heart.
The idea of what is called the Heart of Light attunement originates in the battering the world has faced recently: the turmoil and the division, the increase of emotion. A steady, fixed purpose is called for....
New Lands house, looking bright and welcoming, is open for five-day retreats and courses. Still to come this autumn we have a Christmas Retreat and House Party open to all, and two retreats with places still available for members:

A White Eagle thought for August
'What is a miracle? A miracle is a happening which is beyond most people’s understanding, because it is outside known physical laws. We are sure that if you look for miracles you will be surprised to find they are continually happening.'
Spring into Summer with Stories and in Song!
All the 14 songs and 6 five-minute stories on this CD have arisen from our monthly Family Celebrations and our wish is to share something of the magic, fun and inspiration of these times of coming together to celebrate our spiritual connection. This is community singing—we are not a choir but the voices of the children, parents and the young at heart bring a special upbeat atmosphere and an inner joy which is delightful.
The stories were all written specially for the Family Days and each carries a spiritual message with a light touch. We have a suspicion adults will enjoy them too!
Use the CD as part of a family spiritual time, listen to it in the car, or at any time when your spirits need lifting. A booklet of words accompanies the CD. The sheet music for each song is also available separately. Available on www.whiteaglepublishing.org
Our Family on Facebook is Growing!
You can keep a link with White Eagle's teaching through on-line social media as well as through the printed word.
Over half the Friends of the page are from outside the UK and countries as diverse as Egypt and Japan are well-represented.
We post a thoughtful White Eagle quotation approximately weekly and many Friends like to share this on their own Facebook page, so it is a lovely way to help spread White Eagle's message and wisdom.
Each quotation is accompanied by an evocative New Lands photograph so we balance the homely with the global!
