Our first Bangalore Gathering, with the teachers of the Wolven Path Tradition, at FireFlies Ashram, was a journey of service to ourselves and outwards to others, that our hearts will be an offering to the those that are hungry and in that we ourselves will be fed.

We are lonely – we are hungry – we are searching and longing for home.

Without knowing it we sit downcast on the highways and byways of life’s journey with the begging bowls of our hearts held out, longing and yearning for some passerby to drop the merest crumb, any morsel that will nourish and nurture our famine.

The word "service" comes from an old terminology meaning “to feed’. To give someone something to eat, to feed someone, is an intimate sharing ritual of giving part of yourself in some way to become part of the other.

To feed someone is to show that you care, to revive and refresh the other, to work from inside to make one stronger, to make them well, to take away the pain of hunger, of emptiness. Trouble is that everyone is begging, and the few ones that have the crumb are terrified to give it up. And yet deep in the fire of our hearts, we make that sacrifice to reach out and give that morsel of our heart to another.
