Wellbeing is once again restored. June 4, 2010

Filed under: Retreats & workshops — Admin @ 2:31 pm

The weekend was again a big hit. We had the privilege of guest speaker, Rhonda Bonham, presenting Languages of Love and relationships. Perhaps we could be credited for saving a few marriages too.

The wonderful Judy White spoiled each and every guest with a personal colour analysis. So everyone will now be glowing in their signature colours and will never look drab again.

Janet Schwartz and Rebecca Pryor pampered and informed ladies with skin type analysis and facials.

And I once again shaked and jiggled, calmed and meditated, boogied and chimmied, and generally bossed everyone around.

We know you all enjoyed yourself and hope you took home a new energy and a few new thoughts to work on in your own life. Please look after your new little pet and think of us and your mantra when you admire it each day.

If you couldn’t make it to this years weekend retreat, all of these workshops are available to you

and your friends anytime. You could arrange your own mini retreat with friends or attend one of the public workshop dates coming up this year.

Look at the ‘Retreats & workshops’ section of this site for ideas and contact me for more information.

We’d love to hear your feedback. Please leave your suggestions, ideas, or comments.


 

Is It Fair? April 21, 2010

Filed under: Words & Washing — Admin @ 10:39 am

Is it fair?

Is life fair?

Kids make sure you know about that.

It’s not fair, you’re not fair, and that wasn’t fair!!!

Justice, balance, kids see it.

And, they voice, identify, truly understand it.

Sitting at his office, he told us, if you were to be unlucky to have a cancer, you are lucky to have this one.

This one has a drug just perfect for it.

Knocks out the cancer cells,

You even get to keep your hair!

I sat by him, while the pump purred the miracle drug into his veins.

I drank the instant coffee, as the pot boiled the water, continuously, for all of us, sitting by beds, chairs, waiting for the miracle to happen.

Its years later, the miracle occurred.

Hair is still on him, growing, the bad cells are gone.

He is alive, and kicking.

Others aren’t, died, sadly, described as battles, journeys, and fights. Endless fundraisers, ribbons, badges, there’s always an event organise, or a product endorsed to support.

Did we win? I walk in the ward with him, for his check ups, like the seasons, booked in to check him as the months past.

I never really feel elated, joy, it’s gone.

For, I hear the pumps whirring; I see the pot boiling, the steam flowing from a freshly made instant cup of hope.

They are the others, obeying the instructions of chemotherapy, waiting for the beeps to free them, disband the tubes, get up and walk away.

I imagine, the pumps thrown out by smiling bald headed people. Watching like children at the smashing pieces flying off the pavements below.

I dream of walking on the bits of plastic.

My shoe crunching like an astronauts step on the bald head of the moon.

Tai Chi in the park. March 3, 2010

Filed under: Retreats & workshops,Thoughts — Admin @ 8:31 pm

December, 2009.

Some devoted Tai Chi students took on the challenge and spent their day in Queens Park, Moonee Ponds. Fine tuning skills, practicing breathing and relaxation, learning a huge amount of the form – “Beijing 24”. It was a hard days work with much reward and laughter. Well done! You deserve a nice hot bath.

8 top things we can do for our skin

1. Cleanse like a pro..

Cleansing is the most important step in your skincare routine. Remember to cleanse the entire face and neck area. Take the time to massage well so that the

cleanser can deliver the results.

2. Avoid the urge to squeeze pimples.

When we squeeze it can rupture the duct that produces oil. This in turn can cause infection and eventually scarring. The Grace Clay Mask works a treat on pimples.

3. Shun the Sugar

Remember everything you put into your body is reflected in your skin. Look after your skin from the inside out and don’t forget to drink lots of water.

4. Go Green

Everything we use on our face and body goes into our system or gets washed down the drain, so natural products make sense.

5. Know your Skin Type

To optimise your results it helps to match your cleanser and moisturiser to your skin.

6. Get the Glow

AHA’s work to subtly smooth the skin and even out irregular pigmentation. We can use our Infiniti Beauty Fluids and the Glycolic and Hydrating Mask to breathe life back into tired looking skin.

7. Scrub Up

A lot of people think they have dry skin when in actual fact what they are experiencing is an accumulation of dead cells. Using a scrub helps to whisk away the dry, dead skin cells.

8. Stress Less

Remember your skin is like a mirror – it reflects everything that’s going on within your body and mind. So try not to sweat the small stuff – you’ll be more likely to reap the rewards of a healthy complexion.
