Relating to Life - Art of
the subject of our Web site and will include various aspects, always with
the view, that human life is part of the *whole* and is not separated from
it, even it might look to the individual as being of separated existence.
Most of problems, suffering and unhappiness are resulting from this common
illusion, that shows up and is represented through the state of evolution
humanity is passing. Our *growing process* is not completed and still in
a limited state. Relating to Life and
responding to what shows up in one's daily conditions, situations and encounter,
will delude this split during ones personal *learning, growing and healing*
intention is, to give the space and possibility, to go *consciously* into
such a process, not being absorbed by too much distraction, goals and values
that are the demanding part of society. We can use a simple life style,
in connection with nature, just doing the necessary daily work to maintain
ourselves and the place, - to calm down and then be able to observe and
reflect. Becoming aware of our conditioning and so cleaning up our established
mindset and our worn out habits and attitudes. In short: Going beyond ones
personality with illusions and ones fake self image, what means: *Healing

this process of becoming conscious. We want to give Information through

looks very much like, that it will not happen during our life time that
humanity will go beyond the commonly established mindset, to find togetherness
that serves the whole and not just specific personal interests. What can
we do about it? We can only start with ourselves and relate to what there
is presented in our daily reality and respond the best we are capable and
use what is available as a challenge to learn and to grow. We can *express*
ourselves, still reacting, - more or less conscious about it and when using
this as a challenge, then being able to clean up our background. We can
start from where we are, having an encounter with whatever shows up - when
representing our state of energy and *being*.
(Founder of FalconBlanco)
FalconBlanco was founded
1975 and in the beginning planed as an 'Intentional Community' and 'Meditation/Creativity
Center'. Experience during many years has shown, that with the word 'Community'
there are connected concepts and images, that doesn't meet what FalconBlanco
is or is supposed to be. So then, - what is FalconBlanco?
is an ongoing process*.What
means, that there is no established form or concept how things 'should
be'. It is a *growing process* in which people living at FalconBlanco are
involved with their own personal engagement when being present, that we
see as a
The chaos manifested
on the outside level is the mirror of the individual chaos one is carrying
with oneself and trying to hide or keep under control... The usual way
to live in our society, is to try to fulfill ones goals and values and
find confirmation for ones established self image. To gain this, people
work, fight and struggle. People are not conscious about the fact, that
they are living under the demanding conditioning they have received during
their life and that has programed their mindset. They don't know, that
all these influences are coming out of a fake reality that is created by
humans with all their limited interpretation and unlimited misinterpretation!
The existing picture of this world is indeed the product of manipulation,
so that it provides a frame in that people can live, having a kind of security.
The established power structure, that is part of the social system, is
built up by the most clever individuals and that give a certain direction
and stability, keeping the illusion going...
. * * *
Now there is showing up
an even more serious dilemma, when it becomes clear, that spiritual
concepts are just part of the common mindset and so obviously are coming
out of the same erroneous pictures created from this people-world. As this
world view is integrated part of every ones personality, so there seems
no way to get out of it! Where are you now? What is your most essential
question at this moment?
Living out of this
picture world and having built up ones personality from this, people are
confronting a reality that is different than what they want it to be and
so they struggle and suffer, not being able to find their realization in
this. People are not capable and willing to look at themselves in a critical
way and as a consequence then would work on themselves, but instead they
are projecting their negativity to the outside and of course they find
plenty of occasions every where to do so.
If you have done already
steps to go beyond this personality behavior, then you might find a place
here at FalconBlanco, where you can question yourself and get out of playing
the common confirmation games. Or you had the urge for a change and you
probably have already established and upgrated to a high pitched spiritual
concept, that made it possible for you to survive the confusion when confronting
your daily reality.
We as humans in our
present state of evolution are used to put things into boxes (or under
the carpet if we want to hide things), and then giving names to it, making
a concept out of every thing, believing that we are knowing what it is
and so can control every thing. With this we feel secure, because every
thing has its place. Of course we are fooling ourselves and we stay naive
and ignorant, because all around us are playing the same game, supported
by authorities and all what is established in our society.
In many years it has
shown, that not being supported by the common game, is a challenge
too big for most people coming to FalconBlanco. Only very few are capable
to use this condition in a creative way for their personal growing and
healing process. Most visitors are looking for confirmation for their established
concepts and self image and it doesn't really matter if these are highly
spiritual, it turns out very quick that they don't want to go beyond their
picture world and they prefer to stay within their so well fitting 'straight
jacket', - even though they are suffering and wanting to get out of it...
And then of course it is not possible to give an answer, - if there is
no question... The fact is, that there is no way to make them get out of
their games. No help will be excepted. So who ever wants to come to FalconBlanco,
should have done at least the first step, being aware of ones trapped condition
and having the urge to get out of it.

The island Ibiza has
a very creative energy that can be used if one is willing and ready, but
it can also result in destruction if one doesn't open and welcome creative
influences. Here at FalconBlanco we need to relate and respond out of our
individual condition. Here it shows, who we are as a result of all the
influences we have accumulated in our life and where we are in our individually
established self image and world view. Here one will be disturbed and irritated
in ones picture world. Not that this is our intention, it happens because
there is not the usual confirmation given from the surrounding. There might
not 'like minded' and 'kindred spirits' around to reflect and confirm oneself...
This gives the opportunity to look at oneself to make a critical checkup.
One might find out that part of the used personal setup is worn out and
one can drop it. That will allow that new perspectives show up or at least
some doubts and with this some serious questions...
It has become clear
that answering questions by satisfying the mind, giving new concepts that
are more sophisticated than the old ones, doesn't really help and just
follows the old used ways to strengthen one's 'personality'. So all talking,
used to continue in one's old games or adapting new concepts, will just
change one trap for another one. That is not 'healing' or 'growing' and
being at FalconBlanco, one should be conscious about it.
* * *
At FalconBlanco we are
convinced that there are ways to get out of one's 'strait jacket'. We found
out, that meditation or the 'StressReleaseExercise'
can prepare the necessary basic condition, using ones daily life situations,
to be able to relate to the outside and also to oneself in a different
way. One can stay relaxed and from there relate and respond to whatever
shows up in a more objective way, observing and being aware of one's reactions
on all levels. That's the way to clear up one's personal background, -
that's the unconscious personal program established during one's life -
and this 'clearing up' creates the condition to start to be more objective
and then being able to relate and respond in a new way when taking responsibility
for oneself and also how one is responding in ones daily encounters.
This is a challenge
and to live and experience this in conditions within the usual social setup
it is also possible, even though the whole social system is confirming
and strengthening 'personalities' within the frame of forms and mindsets.
People confirm each other, whatever they do or with whom they meet, using
each other for their need to be confirmed. The same has happened here at
FalconBlanco long enough and we must make it clear that who wants to live
here together with us, must be conscious about this personality game.
this moment we don't except volunteers and visitors, only those who want
to come with the intention to become *long term members* and who complete
the conditions mentioned before!
are doing at FalconBlanco beside maintaining the place and ourselves?
* * *
Apart of this we want
to provide information also for people outside: For all who need it and
ask for it. We are distributing worldwide information about ways to heal
oneself, mainly about the effective 'Stress
Release Exercise', - to further awareness, growth and health.
We investigate about
alternative and holistic ways to heal oneself, furthering self responsibility
and independency and we report about our search and our findings. We are
using various means for this and offer at our Web site articles, answers
to questions, discussions, download ebooks, videos and audio. We
are printing booklets and leaflets. We plan a series of videos to offer
All what we do and
distribute is for free, never there is money involved. All members are
doing their work because they are motivated and engaged in our projects.
Our intention is to start a 'positive chain reaction', helping our fellow
human beings and relating and responding to needs wherever these are showing
up, - without expecting any reward. Then we all can make the surprising
experience that as more we give, as more comes back...
With this we are rising
onto another level, beyond the narrowness of materialistic behavior and
thinking. This is not a project or a dream, this is what we are living
as a daily reality at FalconBlanco.
We have to deal with
all the personal problems we are carrying with us when living here. We
are supporting each other and our common goal is to be of help for others
and the urge for ourselves to get out of worn out habits and mindsets.
This is real work and not everybody is capable for it, - confronting
People ask for a description,
they want to know very concrete what FalconBlanco is and what is going
on here in its essence. It is hardly possible to make this clear, because
it depends too much on the subjective view of the one who receives the
information. FalconBlanco is a 'process' which can be
There are no frames offered in which things are happening. So people need
to relate to what is there and then respond out of there own capability.
What happens depend on the state of being of each individual and the outside
conditions. Can one describe what 'life' is? Even a precise description
can't be very concrete and will leave a lot of space for individual interpretation,
there is no way to avoid misunderstanding and so expectations will be desappointed
when these are not be confirmed by one's personal experience when living
at FalconBlanco, because the reality here is different. So part of the
work is to creatively work with the dilemma showing up. (It must be said
that few people are capable to respond in a creative way, mostly they are
defending their established self image and old way to see the world and
themselves and so they might react with disappointment, so we need to find
out in how far people are ready before they come.)
What we are living
at FalconBlanco does not fit into known concepts, unless antique wisdom
are remembered, where it was said: "Know yourself..."
Not even existing
forms, like 'Intentional
Communities' come near to a possible general description. So
if you might ask: "Is FalconBlanco an 'Intentional Community?" Then we
will answer: No, it is not!
Because we are not trying to live a concept. Our 'coming together' is part
of the way we are living. Many years of experience have shown that most
people have problems when their expectations are not meeting with reality
and is different from dreams and concepts. This is a necessary step one
must have completed, before one can go further to realize a state of being
that is based on *reality*, - that goes beyond any description with words...
At FalconBlanco we
are not living concepts, we are relating consciously in a responsible and
creative way to daily circumstances,
trusting that whatever appears, is the
most effective happening to further our personal growth, what includes
our conscious decisions.
People sometimes ask:
"What is your philosophy?" We are NOT bound to any philosophy
or belief system. We see life as our 'teacher', including more and more
into our growing awareness, being active and creative - allowing to be
inspired, expressing ourselves, - going beyond personal limitations, enjoying...
And of course also going through our personal reactions: being sad, angry,
etc. But we are convinced, that whatever shows up on the outside, happenings,
situations, conditions, people, - that this is exactly what we need in
our growing process. Some times this is hard to take. Real work is only
possible when connected with 'trust'...
We are conscious about
the fact that NOT having concepts, except the working concept - leaves
a lot of space open for individual interpretation and so people who are
coming to live at FalconBlanco bring with them their self images and with
this their expectation to be confirmed in their personal reality, which
then are not meeting what they find here in daily circumstances and how
people respond or not respond to them and so this might cause frustration
and disappointment. So either people can get angry and leave the place
or they relate to what is there and maybe finding out something about themselves,
doing a step to self knowledge and with this leaving a bit of their
'old program' behind...
is the goal of FalconBlanco?
To live individually
one's essential existence,
using daily circumstances as stepping stones towards self knowledge, allowing
and opening up to fields that transform one's personality, (finally
as a self expression of love). Without any manipulation but with the trust
that there is an unfolding growing process, that guides us in a natural,
non violent and non manipulative way towards what could be called Health.
Trusting that on our path we will receive the light
we need, coming out of one's heart individually
and from the Sun for all...
Writing and talking
is a way to express oneself. One can give a description of one's position
and the way one sees situations and receives other peoples expressions.
If this opens an interchange and a communication, then this can be a way
to help each other to clear things up.
the idea of people coming together?
There might live together
up to 20 people: Practicing the 'Stress
Release Exercise', doing body exercises or Yoga, talk, work, doing
some artistic self expression, share, learn and enjoy their lives, relating
to simple daily circumstances, finding a new way to deal with themselves
and their surrounding, alone and in togetherness helping and healing each
other. Finding individually their way to express themselves - 'coming
together' by living together in a responsible way, responding to each
other and to daily conditions.
Living at FalconBlanco,
there is no money involved. There is a loose structure for the living together.
There are certain times for meditation and other healing exercises and
the daily work to maintain the place, which must be completed, as there
are no paid workers. Out of our specific lifestyle there are coming certain
which will not be felt as such if your way of life is similar as ours...
There is guidance
available for various healing exercises. We are working together, finding
out about alternative ways to do things and to deal with our environment.
For example: From vegetables and fruits and other organic material and
the manure of our horse (now from neighbors, because my horse died) we
are making compost, which we use on our land or we exchange it. If there
are enough people, we are growing vegetables and we are doing some recycling.
Living together at
FalconBlanco, there is no 'owner'. There is no boss, no guru. Who can 'own'
land anyway? Owner is the one who feels responsible and takes care. We
are not only trying to be friendly with people but also with plants, animals
and the environment as a whole. -
Therefore people must
be willing and able to set their own needs for certain moments aside. That
the living together of people coming from all over the world with different
cultures, etc. can function, it is necessary that every body takes responsibility
and also some initiative. This can happen when there is motivation and
engagement, what of course can't be there from the moment of arrival, even
though one can expect to be with 'friends'. It's part of the growing process,
individually and as a group. This needs some time...
you can do to become a long term member?
We welcome people
who are seriously interested to heal
themselves and who also feel the urge to help and support
others. People who want to participate should be responsible for themselves
and have enough motivation and initiative to step out of their old world
view, habits and personal structure; with other words: Who are ready and
willing to undergo such difficult process... Inform yourself about FalconBlanco

Why you are interested
in FalconBlanco? Is the reason because you are looking for an alternative
way of life, not being satisfied with what is offered by society? Is the
reason because you want to be understood when you are expressing yourself
and looking for like minded and friendly people? And are you open enough
to receive impulses which not only serve to confirm yourself but to have
a critical look at yourself? With other words: Do you have the urge to
get to know yourself, the urge for 'clarity'? Do you dare to quest yourself?
To look at yourself even there might come up things you don't like? Are
you ready to search for reasons in the first place within yourself not
giving the fault to the outside and other people?
We ask you not
to show up at FalconBlanco without our confirmation. We would like to be
more spontaneous, but our experiences during many years have told us better
to hold back.

that I have learned enough now and indeed it would be wasting energy to
continue with the same experience. So I prefer that people feel not attracted
