Places of the Soul

I am a single thread, a single thread being woven within a life-renewing and source-connected pattern. The pattern has neither size nor shape; nothing can be seen or visualised, or pre-determined. It can only be sensed and experienced. Within. In places that feed the soul through meditation, contemplation, reflection, silence and stillness, mindfulness,…according to the experience.

PENNABILLI, 19 October

Sanctuary of thoughts

“Seven mysterious stones, seven opaque mirrors for your mind, seven listeners waiting to hear your beautiful and your not-so-beautiful words.”

Path of Thoughts

“An old person was living alone in a desert village. I felt sorry for him. He shocked me. ‘Remember, loneliness keeps you company.'”

The Refuge of Abandoned Madonnas

“Inspired by roadside shrines at country crossroads. Abandoned by people and time, they’ve flown from their niches and settled in a peaceful corner of the garden.”

Places of the Soul was conceptualised by Tonino Guerra – poet, writer, screenwriter.

La Campagna de Lhasa

Tibet welcomed Capuchin missionaries from Le Marche in the early 1700s. The first of these was Orazio, from Pennabilli. The Dalai Lama has made two visits to Pennebilli: in 1994 in honour of Orazio, and in 2005 he inaugurated the Bell of Lhasa.
