Subud Voice April 2021 Word Version


I was at the Basara Youth Gathering in Central Kalimantan over New Year. In all the time I was there, I don’t think I saw anyone with a book or a magazine, but I saw everyone with a mobile phone which they consulted many times a day.

It’s time for Subud Voice to start communicating via social media… so we are looking for a young person to co-edit SUBUD VOICE on FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM, TWITTER ETC… Contact Harris at
