Terry Oldfield – Finding My Voice

By | Terry's Blog

Looking back from this moment when I am meandering along this path of acceptance, I see now that there have been a handful of pivotal experiences that were so powerful at the time that they set the tone for the long periods in between.

Up until the age of 12 I was a happy young boy, spending my time fishing and playing football with my friends – Generally living in the moment and enjoying life.

A Blessing in Disguise

By | Blog, Terry's Blog
Just before Christmas 2016, I faced the biggest challenge of my life so far..  I lost my right eye due to a rare form of melanoma … Soraya writes about this beautifully in her blog here.  I really  felt for a short time that I would not be able to come back from this and reached a moment of deepest despair. What I couldn’t see at the time was that this moment was to be a real Turning Point in my life …

SPIRAL – The music that launched Terry Oldfield’s career

By | Terry's Blog

This is the story behind the musical piece I called ‘Spiral’ that launched my career.

It was 1977 and I was rather disillusioned with life when I decided to rent a cottage near the remote Welsh village of Llanrhaedr Ym Mochnant to spend the winter recording a piece of music that had been pulling at my heart strings for some time. It was based on a chord sequence that had emerged from some work I had been doing with a friend on the I Ching.

The Magic of Acceptance – Pain

By | Mindfulness

About a year ago, I tore the meniscus in my left knee. For those of you who have had this injury, the pain can be unbearable. After months of healing, things were starting to improve until I squatted to pick up a paint can and I was in agony again.

My darling Soraya suggested my knee was trying to tell me something. I spent a day in the chair pondering and meditating on this. The answer came: Stop, be still and be present.

Doing this, I was able to reach a point where I am actually grateful for my knee for showing me and for Soraya for helping me surrender to the pain. It reminds me of this beautiful blog

Walking the Path of Music

By | Travel

Dear Friends – I have just returned from Bali – my first visit there since 1971 when I was a wandering traveller searching for something that seemed to be always just that little bit ahead – Bali was then a true paradise on Earth and I stayed with a family on Cuta beach in a little straw hut where I was embraced as one of the family. So much giving! So much love! Read More

Sweet Awakenings

By | Terry's Blog

Hello Dear Friends

I woke early this morning as usual and sat on my meditation spot for half an hour just to see what was going on inside – Then I had a bowl of Quinoa porridge with Soraya before heading off up for a 5 Km walk into the Kondalilla Falls national park. Then I met a friend for a cappucino at the Edge looking over the Sunshine Coast and the Ocean. What a great day so far! Read More
