I would like to begin this blog entry with many thanks to those who are supporting our decision, during these unprecedented times, to close our services for the second time,
It is with heavy heart, that I have decided to shut down JātaDreads with immediate effect. Due to the rise in new infections and now more people are having to go to hospital, I feel it is my responsibility to be a part of the solution to this situation and help stop the further spread of COVID-19. Should humanity collectively act with compassion towards each other and effectively adapt to the necessary changes required to dramatically decrease the spread of the virus, then, I will consider re-opening JātaDreads.
In the meantime, my advice to you is to learn how to lock your own hair, and become self-sufficient in your quest towards self expression. Cultivating self-sufficiency, ie independent discipline, is a fundamental step that gives rise to integrity in the true essence of spiritual devotion.
We wish you all well and please act safely.
Anna-Marie and Philip
