Hi there yogis,

Just to let you know.  We now have PayPal and PayPal CREDIT on our web site which means that you can pay for your classes (and anything in the shop) by paypal.  The easiest way is to click “DONATE” which is at the bottom of the Home page, and pay the appropriate amount for your class as a once off donation, and do it each time or as a block booking..  PayPal sends me a notification of payment, and sends Jacky a monthly statement.  It is super easy.  I will put the classes on the shop when I have worked out the easiest way, but for the moment, DONATE is the easiest way.

I will have the courses and hopefully the classes in the shop, but for the time being, chat with me about what you want, and then DONATE the appropriate amount.

The Sunday morning teacher training is exceedingly popular.  I have classes now every second Sunday.  I am thinking of making it every Sunday at 10am (a two week repeat)  so that I have not got too many per class.  Plus if you miss one, you can come to the next. It will cost $20 per class and PayPal is now the easiest way.   I want it to be like a class, not a desktop of postage stamp sized people whom I can’t see.  I want to see you.  These classes are important and it has been YEARS since I had a full Teacher Training class mostly because of time constraints and distance, none of which apply on Zoom.


“Esam bhutanam prthivi rasha, prthivya apo raso-pam asadhyo rasa, osadhinam puruso rasah”    “The essence of all beings is earth.  The essence of earth is water.  The essence of water is plants. The essence of plants is the human being.”

Chandogya Upanishad

 I am working out times for herbal remedy classes, on zoom.  Anyone can join, no previous experience is needed, just a willingness to learn.    I think that Monday at 6.45 to 7.45pm would be a good time for me. What about you?   I would do a series of three classes  for $35.  You would need to download the booklet I provide from Etsy.  Once we have completed the 3 classes we can decide whether to delve deeper.  I won’t know until we start which direction the class will take.  I am hoping to help you start your own classes… we need people who can save the world, one yogi at a time.

We will start with simple herbs and weeds you can find in the garden and whilst you are out walking. The plant on the back of my new Tea Leaf Reading Cards is in fact A Tea Plant. We will talk about history and philosophy, we will learn how to forage and gather, identify,  dry them, freeze and store them, make teas, make Bach Flower remedies… maybe even read tea leaves.  Keep in mind that I am not a MEDICAL HERBALIST, so what we make will not be dangerous.  Just simple “medicine woman” stuff. The wisteria in the picture is spring on my back verandah.  When the bees have been active, this is the result.

I am looking forward to our classes aren’t you. As an aside. When Thea Sinesis (the original tea herb)  was first introduced in England it was pronounced cha or tcha from the Mandarin and Cantonese dialects spoken in Macao,  the port from which the tea was shipped.  When a Cockney housewife in London says it would be nice to have “a cup of char”, she is speaking perfectly acceptable Chinese, a holdover from the original word. There even used to be a Black Market in tea when the British introduced Tea Taxes.


I have had a few tradespeople come see me during the lock-down.  In spite of the fact that they are the lucky ones. They have a trade, a car, a community, still there is no spring in their step,  and they talk about less business, and things are hard, and getting worse…and are surprised when I say how fantastic my life is.  And it is.  I believe in ABUNDANCE and abundance is about each person’s relationship with the Universe (which you may call “God”).  

You may not know how to get out of whatever mess you are in, but the Universe does.  Believe in God or whatever you want, it doesn’t change the fact – it is designed to help you.  In the middle of eternity (or infinity) there are no limits or restrictions.  What we ask for, and think we won’t get, surprise, we won’t get. Our own perception of how things work is getting in the way of the outcome (and our “income”).  Your karma can also get in the way, and asking for negative outcomes can too.

Limitations live in our world, not in the Universe, not in God’s world.  God (or your Angels) only measures two things – SINCERITY AND GRATITUDE.  Your willingness to express Gratitude will ensure that whatever happens, even if you don’t see it as the solution to your problem (yet), it will allow the Universe the greatest flexibility  to assist you in whatever it is you desire, and ensure you will always get the very best.

It goes without saying you have to know what you want, and not keep changing your mind.  If you went into a cafe and kept changing your mind about what you wanted to eat, in the end no-one would be happy, and you may leave hungry.  The Universe is only as useful to you as you allow it to be.

You have to know what you want, make up your mind, and listen for the advice from the Universe however it comes – from dreams, synchronicities, your Angels, the TV.  Just expect it.  Maybe ask for the wisdom to let your higher self intercede.  The Universe is hugely bountiful. What you want may take a minute or so, it may take a month or a year… BUT IT WILL COME IN THE RIGHT TIME.  ASK IT, BELIEVE IT, AND TRUST IT. IT WILL COME.
