Summer, Solstice and Christmas

It has been a long time since the last entry and what a busy time as well....things to let go of, things that are new and have started. Not sure what happened to Spring and getting on here and writing about it, time is speeding up and as it does we need to be slowing down and enjoying nature.

Have been in the vegie patch and planting for Summer abundance, the seedlings that were little are now growing very well. We have corn, lettuce, tomatoes, eggplants, peas, strawberries, artichokes (marinated them for the first time and in a few months they will be ready to eat!!). Have also planted some berries, a few different tree fruits like goji, and also some nut trees almonds, walnuts, so it will be interesting to see how they go over the next few years. Our little orchard is coming along nicely with lots of fruit on the trees....apricots, peaches, apples, lemons, nectarines and plums. Looking forward to harvesting it all.
On another note over the last 6 months i started a women's spiritual journey and we have just had our last meeting for the year....i must say it was an amazing experience and a joy to be able to facilitate a wonderful group of very special women who are committed to their spiritual growth. We had fun, sharing, chanting, meditating and learning a lot of different things and i thank them all for their committment.
We will begin again in March 2011 for our next journey towards light and love for ourselves and others.
Also before this year ends there will be a Summer Solstice Ceremony here at the Studio and it is open to all, it is a time of honouring the abundance of summer, family, is a time of give away - giving away a part of you and then bringing in the new for the year to come. Looking at what you have bought into your life over the last 12 months and what you would like to bring in for the next 12 months,. It will be a night of fun, laughter, ceremony, chanting and sharing.
hope to see some of you here for the celebration.
There is Summer yoga starting 4th Jan. Tuesday night 6.30pm and Wed morning 5th Jan 9.30am if anyone would like to join me for 5 weeks.
Massage, Tarot readings and healings are beginning back then as well, so if you would like a session in any of these please phone to book a time.
Everyone have a great Christmas, a wonderful fun summer and a beautiful new year. Remember in times of busyness make the time to stop and smell the roses!!
love and light

winter stillness

Hi everyone,

Well i must say that it has been a long time since my last entry......i usually teach yoga on a tuesday night, however tonight everyone called in sick so that made no class which meant i had time for catch up on some things that i havent looked at for awhile.
As i sit and type this i am listening to the frogs in the back pond and am aware of the wonderful stillness that is in the air and as i walked back from the studio there was this amazing crispness in the air and a certain peacefulness that makes you stop and breathe in deeply that certain quietness.
A lot has happened over the last 6 months......have been very busy with family and not so much with work although i have run a few workshops and an Hawaiian lomilomi training which was fantastic. Have another training coming up in September, so i am in the prep stages of putting all my manuals together.

Winter has been a time of reflection on all that i do and it also is a time of shows us if we stop and take the time to be still, we are then able to acknowledge all that is in our lives and what we are grateful for.

Here at the studio a group of us gathered and celebrated winter solstice an amazing night of coming together with like minded people. A time where we are able to use the energy of the Solstice to let go and be open to the new beginnings that are coming in at the Spring equinox.
A time of meditation and contemplation on all that has gone on in our lives over the last 12 months. We all had a great time together.

Yoga has slowed a bit....however that is what the energy is in winter, time to curl up by the fire, read a book, have a cuppa and rest so that we have the energy to come back out into the busyiness of our lives in Spring and Summer.

What is happening at the Studio over the next few months is:

Sunday August 8th: Lama Tendar, a Tibetan monk is coming and doing a talk, chanting and meditation afternoon. Begins at 2pm and finishes 4pm. Cost is $20 Bookings are necessary so please phone me if you would like to join us or there is information in the store.

September: Hawaiian lomilomi training, this is a 4.5day training and you will be a certified lomilomi practitioner after this. Great to add to other healing modalities or if you are looking for a new career.

Anyway i hope i wont leave it so long next time and always drop into the store on thursdays as i am there and would love to chat or email me if interested in anything that we do here at the studio.

Take it easy and will chat soon. Remember to take time each day to be in the moment and breathe!!

love and light

Been a while since i have written and so much has been happening.....xmas has passed and it was a wonderful time spent with family and friends. We have been renovating a room here at the Studio, it once was an office and now we have created a reading room where students, clients and really anyone who visits can go and rest, read, have a cuppa or just be. We can also incorporate a tarot reading if any one wishes. It is a lovely quiet room looking out onto our cottage garden.

Also what has been going on is a lot of preserving....Rod has been preserving peaches, apricot, plums and nectarines....they are all amazing, also he has been making some wonderful jam!! We have been indulging in this a bit.

Our vegie patch and orchard has once again provided us with abundance with which we are very grateful...we have had an abundance of delicious corn, beans, lettuce, cucumbers and we are still waiting for the tomatoes to ripen, they are nearly the moment there is an abundance of green ones so once they are ripe we will be making tomato sauce, paste, and eating many with some scrumptious basil pesto all from our garden!!

Yoga is back this week after a break over jan and looking forward to getting into teaching, also coming up are a few different workshops.
Sat 20th feb is a dream board workshop where you can create your magical future.

March 20th 21st is our Goddess 2 day retreat where we will be nurturing our inner goddess and having some fun.

Also coming up later into term 2 is a Hawaiian lomilomi training this will be great!!

For more information on these workshops please email or phone....Sue on 0417 057 667 5989.8091 or you can call into the health store and check out the notice board all brochures are put there.

Anyway must go and looking after my beautiful grandson and am going to have a fun day.
