One of my greatest mentors in the Subud community, Halstein Stralberg, died on November 6, 2022 and was memorialized in Seattle at the Subud House/Spring Street Center on Sunday, January 22, 2023. I talked on the occasion about how he was one of my two “go-to” Brothers when I had concerns in Subud (usually about other members) and often about simply dealing with what life had thrown in my lap. The video is here:

He was an extraordinary man who was happy to do Latihan Kedjiwaan (the Subud spiritual practice) and attend Subud events around the world as an international helper. His mere presence instantly changed the local community for the better. R.I.P. Halstein. Subud is not the same without you.
