Dear Yogis,

ZOOM
MONDAY: 1pm RESTORATIVE.
TUESDAY: 7.30 to 9pm THE SUTRAS (The beginning of a journey).

CONSULTATIONS:  Be aware that I am available for health/personal/business consults on zoom or email.  Or private yoga philosophy or yoga sessions.  Please email me to chat or book yogafirst@netcon.net.au:  $85 for a session which is about an hour.

PENDULUM: NEW CHARTS, NEW COURSES ON THE WAY.  What if you approached PENDULUM WORK and used this and your tarot as a DIVINE VOICE that can direct you to a life of MIRACULOUS outcomes.  It is a very powerful question and inspired me and my students/diviners all over the world to contemplate the Divine whilst working with THE REVELATION TAROT and their pendulums and boards.  Their results have been astounding.  JOIN US.

SUNDAY TEACHER TRAINING: Sunday 10am We opened the session with words from The Gospel According to Mary Magdalen.  The students were amazed how close these words are to the Bhagavadgita, Vedic Teachings and yoga.  The Chakras, The Yamas, Illusion, Impermanence – all there. Why did you miss it?  Next week we will probably look at The Gita via the Upanishads.  But who knows?  Be there.

THE SUTRAS: Tuesdays 7.30 to 9pm.  Only one day left before we start our journey into the Sutras.  One of the students asked me am I going to do more than one per session.  Answer – there are 195 Sutras, we are not doing 195 Tuesdays.  I will try and cover all the concepts, and delve into the sutras that are more simple philosophically (none of them are simplistic – but some may be more simple than others), and appear to be more accessible and practical.

To book to either of these.  Email me to let me know you are coming (so I can send you the ZOOM ID), go to the HOME page of the web site www.yogabeautiful.com.au look on the list and decide which classes you want to come to.  To pay, click on DONATE or PAY VIA PAYPAL 

MOVIES

I don’t often speak about movies, but I totally enjoy really good, deep movies – although when I feel like a romp,  I appreciate Cher and Bob Hoskins in MERMAID or Cher and Christina Aguillera in BURLESQUE…

What prompted this is two movies.  THE WHITE CROW (Foxtel 401 or +421 on demand,  or YOU TUBE) which is the story of Rudolph Nureyev (Google him if you don’t recall the name!)  and his defection to the West,  directed and starring Ralph Fiennes.  This is an amazing movie with quite a lot of ballet. Ralph plays an amazing part of Pushkin the Ballet master.  He is still, controlled but underneath you can sense the perfection of thought, and understanding of the body melded with spirit.  A man who does without doing – very Zen.  

This is a move that moves from artistic introspection to stunning ballet, and  then to the tense situation which actually occurred as Nureyev defected and the Russians tried to stop the process. This film helps us to understand how helpless one can feel when being threatened by a Government with great power, Russia at that time, and China today.. How when faced with this negative power (I was going to say evil) you have to cut family ties, and not even think of what may happen to them,  believing they would want what is best for you no matter the cost.  Having good friends in high places is always useful – and when it counted Rudi did.

The second movie is LARS AND THE REAL GIRL.  (I emailed those students I thought might be interested – Foxtel 409 on demand or YOUTUBE).  This movie is worth recording.  Lars is a young man (probably on the spectrum), who finds it impossible to make female friends but longs to.  He lives in a very small community in the Arctic (or that’s how it seems, lots of snow, very cold).  To solve this girl problem he purchases a full size sex type doll and pretends she is real, not just in private but as he lives and works in the town. He takes her to dinner parties, to the doctor when “she isn’t feeling well” and pushes her around to the supermarket in a wheel chair. The townspeople love Lars and respond to this dilemma by playing along, and allowing him to resolve his problem in a very loving way.  There is a beautiful resolution which I won’t retell because it will spoil the movie.

EVERYONE, go to the Home Page www.yogabeautiful.com.au to discover what is happening this week.  I will put out a newsletter when I can.. it may not be every day.  Anyone who thinks I have more hours in the day than they do (as Dianna Vreeland said) “is insane”. HOWEVER,  I use what free time I do have, to be with you…..

NAMASTE – JAHNE
