Hello, and thank you for visiting.
We were a psycho-spiritual group, doing inner process work to help the world move forward in a positive way. We lived in different parts of Britain.
We had a regular weekly meditation link-up, which we carried out wherever each of us was located at the time. We had three weekend meet-ups each year and a week-long summer camping retreat. We started in 1997 and we closed in 2018.
We looked into the underlying threads, history, influences and symbolism pervading world situations. Events might be localised, but they affect, involve or are caused by all of humanity, symbolically or literally. Then we related this to our own issues and experiences, bringing together the global and the personal. We found this to be revealing and meaningful.
The circle acted in a spirit of service, goodwill, understanding and reconciliation, for the greatest benefit of all beings, without prejudice or judgement, and for the greatest good. That's not easy, and we learned lessons along the way, but that was our clear intention.
This work was voluntary, unpaid, minimally organised and driven equally by all full members of the circle. We kept things simple and manageable, and that helped us keep going. From 1997 to 2018 we meditated together every single week and had many group meetings, having remarkable experiences doing so.
We closed the Flying Squad in March 2018.
Why? Natural attrition caused us to lose members, one by one, and insufficient people were able or willing to replace them. The three of us who were left did not want to run courses or act as teachers or group leaders - we sought a circle of equals. Perhaps we had also come to the end of a long chapter.
So after 20 years working together, and with our lives moving in diverging directions, we decided to close the group.
