Contribute to the Book of Debts

Is there something you owe, or are owed, that you would like to draw a line under? A sum of money, an action left undone or a word left unsaid? Or something owed to or by a third party, individual or institution?

You can enter your debt and its story - into the Book of Debts here, now. All contributions are anonymous and you can add as many debts as you like.

The Book of Debts will then be recited and burned, one volume per location, as part of the final performance in each city, in a symbolic act of absolution.

To follow what happens to the Books and their remains, enter your email address when asked and we will invite you to the tour finale in 2015.

DEBT NUMBER

Every one of us, as unique and intact members of humanity, enters this world, owing nothing to anyone. It is only then, from that very first moment of human life, that the world we have constructed historically, decides any one of us can be a debtor. Just as each and every one of our lives was a gift, we can only honour that gift, by giving to others. We are nothing of ourselves; only hen we share the significant gifts of our living experience, do we then become truly rich, together, everyone of us, bar none

OWED TO Tibetan Nation
OWED BY China

To the Tibetan nation the debt amounting to the total sum of : Freedom + Spiritual land is owed by the Chinese government which continues it's repression and concerted effort to annihilate the Tibetan culture, faith and spirit through it’s quietly aggressive program of assimilation into Chinese culture. I am grateful to those who have and continue to inspire courage, faith and belief in the path of Wisdom, Compassion and Loving kindness: His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, my grand mother Mamy.’

For all the love and support I've had over the years - to allow me to be myself, accept myself and banish the guilt. They have enabled me to fully embrace the joy of living that was made to seem so sinful by those nuns.

(I can’t even spell for how hard this is ) for the child I lost, who I never saw grow. A situation I hid from all around me. A guilt I’ve felt forever. May your assistance, life, finally be celebrated and my  mind clarified.
