Episode 10: The Translators’ Week at the Martinus Centre, 2018

The Translators’ Week, 2018.

In May 2018 Mary McGovern and The Martinus Institute organised the third Translators’ Week at the Martinus Centre, Klint, Denmark. The purpose of the week was to give the institute’s translators, language consultants and proofreaders the opportunity to attend a series of lectures on translating, to develop mutual friendship and cooperation, and to work in the peace and quiet of the centre, away from the many duties of daily life. Twenty-one people, representing 11 languages, the institute’s publishing house and the institute’s international IT service, attended.

In this episode Pernilla Rosell interviews English translator Mary McGovern about the Translators’ Week and her own experience of translating Martinus’s works. Mary provides some insight into the translation process and describes the translation group’s desire to make Martinus’s world picture available in as many languages as possible. They see the translation work as a contribution to understanding ourselves and the world around us.

This podcast was recorded by Pernilla Rosell and Mary McGovern at The Martinus Institute, Copenhagen, Denmark on 19th May 2018. Music composed and performed by Lars Palerius.

Episode 6: All of a Sudden I Saw a White Triangle. Interview with Sarah Ann Kinnear

What does it mean to you to have a spiritual experience with signs and colours that you cannot explain? How can we learn more about universal love, intuition, eternity and infinity? In the sixth episode of the Martinus Cosmology Podcast, Pernilla Rosell interviews Sarah Ann Kinnear from Pensacola, Florida, about her personal spiritual experiences and her encounter with Martinus’ cosmology, as well as her activities for promoting learning about Martinus’ works in Pensacola.

Sarah worked as a teacher and as principal for 35 years and has written a seven-volume series of children’s books entitled Little Pearl’s Reflection, the first three of which have been published (see link below), illustrated by Bodil Sebrina Christensen. Sarah tells us about the inspiration she felt when she found Martinus’ symbols and works and began studying them. She explains how some of Martinus’ cosmic analyses and symbols have inspired her in her own life and in the creation of her children’s books.

Sarah also tells us about her experience of taking part in the international summer courses at the Martinus Centre in Klint, Denmark. This podcast was recorded by Pernilla Rosell at the Martinus Centre on 12th August 2017, at the end of the summer season 2017 during Sarah’s sixth visit to the centre.
