Rotterdam

Richard Lang - Monday, February 18, 2013

We had a lovely workshop in Rotterdam on Saturday, organised by Edwin. 25 people for the day, all enjoying being headless! We hope to have another workshop in the autumn.

French subtitles

Richard Lang - Thursday, February 14, 2013

I've just uploaded my film about Douglas Harding with French subtitles. Translated by Catherine Harding. Please tell your French-speaking friends.

I'm giving a workshop in Rotterdam on Saturday. I'm looking forward to seeing old friends, and making new ones.

We continue to work on the iPhone/iPad app for the headless way... It's fun.




Video Reflections

Richard Lang - Sunday, February 10, 2013

On Monday (Feb 4) I had the idea of adding short Video Reflections to the app. we are developing for iPhone/iPad. My idea was to take short clips from films of Douglas Harding, of about 2 minutes - like grabbing a quotation from a book. Since Monday I have assembled 70 video clips! Complete with intro title and credits! So, hopefully our app. will be accepted by Apple... and then friends who have these Apple products can access the Video Reflections, plus lots of other things on the app. I will also be gradually releasing the Video Reflections on Youtube. I still have to work out how I'm going to do that.

It has been inspiring to go through films of Douglas - so far I've taken clips from On Having No Head, the Melbourne Lecture, and a film I have taken in Canada in 1992. The last one has not been published, so far as I know.

We are also nearing the completion of The Trial of the Man who said he was God as an ebook. And the German edition of On Having No Head is moving forwards. It's translated now. I have to write the preface...


App curve

Richard Lang - Friday, February 01, 2013

We are on a learning curve, developing the headless way app. for iPhone - learning how to stream video to the iPhone app. from our website!


Creative Space

Richard Lang - Sunday, January 20, 2013

Plenty arriving out of the Great Space these days! After publishing on Youtube my film about Douglas Harding, friends have been translating the text into various languages. Currently we have it online in Spanish, German, Italian and Greek. The Dutch subtitles are nearly ready. I'm adding the Japanese subtitles at the moment. Thank you to all our friends for so generously contributing in this way. We hope to have the French and Russian subtitles on Youtube in the near future.

We have also got new French-speaking friends helping out with translating the Big Hierarchy into French. We are about two thirds of the way through translation - well, not 'we', since I'm not doing it :-) This is being superbly co-ordinated by Navi. So, thank you friends! We have also got an enthusiastic Spanish team working on the Spanish version. This book, by the way, is huge. It's like War and Peace. So, it is a hugely ambitious project. But such a worthwhile one. I'm sure that in the future people will send out so much gratitude to everyone involved in these projects.

We have more interviews translated too, thanks to the work of marvellous friends - with subtitles in Spanish, Russian, Japanese and Czech. 

You can find links to all these films on our website.

We have published the ebook of The Hidden Gospel by Douglas Harding - a workshop manual Douglas wrote in the 1970s. And we are just completing the work of making The Trial of the Man who said he was God, by Douglas, into an ebook. That will be ready soon. I proof-read it this week. I read it a few years ago, but reading it again was deeply inspiring. This was one of the books that Douglas was really proud of.

Colin Oliver, long-time friend of Douglas, and a poet, put forward the idea of publishing a collection of Douglas' poems - poems he wrote in the last months of his life. This week we have had great fun putting this together. This will be ready soon.

There is more, too! The Japanese pages of the website went live recently. And Bobby in Oregon is completing the iPhone app. for the headless way!

I think there is more, but I am running out of steam, and have to get back to adding Japanese subtitles to the film of Douglas Harding!


Subtitles

Richard Lang - Friday, November 23, 2012

I've more or less completed my film about the life and work of Douglas Harding. I'll probably put it on Youtube around mid-December. It's 35 minutes long. Several friends have agreed to translate it into various languages, so now I'm adding English subtitles - then I can simply swap another language for the English. It's a long process!

Today I'm going to Belgium for a workshop on Saturday. I think there will be about 45 people. Back on Saturday night. Travelling on Eurostar.

Website in Japanese

Richard Lang - Monday, November 19, 2012

Yuko in Tokyo has been translating our website into Japanese. With the help of Navi in Western Australia, we are gearing up to launch it. Thank you, Yuko and Navi!

The Hierarchy of Heaven and Earth

Richard Lang - Thursday, November 15, 2012

A French friend is translating the huge original manuscript of The Hierarchy of Heaven and Earth by Douglas Harding into French. This is a huge book, over 600 large pages. Dominique is half-way through! Thank you, Dominique!

Video Biog. of Douglas Harding

Richard Lang - Monday, November 12, 2012

I've been working more on a video biography of Douglas Harding - a short version for Youtube. It's difficult to record here in London - planes going over every other minute, cars hooting, dogs barking... So I recorded for two nights, between 1am and 6am ! It's pretty quiet then. At 6am the planes start circling again... The film is about 30 minutes long. I've still more editing work to do. I'm hoping it will be ready to upload for mid-December -ish. But you never know!
