Dear Yogis,

Last Saturday I didn’t go to Church because a friend lost his best horse whilst she was delivering a foal.  The foal died first and then the mum died.  A complex birth and he was upset – I spent time on the phone and chose that over Church.  Today I discover that the Church has become Tier one after a person at that particular Saturday service tested positive to Covid – had I been there I would have had to isolate.   I was blessed.  Sad the horse died though.

SCHEDULE
ZOOM:  Monday 6.30 Teacher Training (Free), Tuesday 7.30 CCP Study, Friday 6.45 Tarot/pendulum, Sunday 10am CCP
STUDIO: Monday 1pm (full), Wednesday 1pm (Full), 5.30pm (vacancy), Friday 5.30 Hatha (Vacancy)

COMPASSIONATE COMPANIONS PROJECT
I was listening to Radio National this morning and learned that there is a huge shortage of people who will work with children in all areas that impact mental health.

Maybe if you are a Compassionate Companion and this is an area that you are interested in, then there are opportunities out there for you.  You could contact your local council, G.P’s and other places which work with children.  I would contact “MABEL” if I was looking for CCP work.  They seem to have a lot of opportunities for people working in our area of expertise.  If you are a CCP Graduate with BachFlower expertise, this is a combo I think would be especially fantastic with children.

Last evening on our zoom call we were speaking of the film DEAD MAN with Johnny Depp.  This film is a classic, and shows one mans journey into life and death. Thanks to our student Kate, we have the link.

HERBS AND THE HEART

Before I had my first vax and then a week after my second I had my blood tested, just to prove to anyone out there that it doesn’t effect those markers – or it didn’t effect mine.  Everything was as it always is – fine.  However, it did effect me in another way.  After the first Vax I had periods of extreme tiredness.   This passed, and then after the second one, the same thing happened but not as extreme.  This time though I asked for a blood pressure monitor so I could see what was happening.  Yes, my blood pressure was higher (for no particular reason), and no matter what i did i couldn’t get it lower.  

 

Then I remembered HAWTHORN. The photo above  is of hawthorn in full fruit.  The leaves and buds/flowers are even better than the fruit from a therapeutic point of view..

This tree used as hedgerows and windbreaks by the early farmers is easy to find, and written about in almost every reputable herb book – English, Indian, Japanese and Chinese.   So I went out, picked the just exploding flowers, leaves and shoots, dried them,  and have been having the tea since Saturday. Result according to the hi-tech monitor is I am now back to NORMAL, after only three and half days.   Moral of this story is – go out with your bags and collect.  Now is a perfect time.  Dry them until they crackle and become tea like.  If you have a heart condition, take the tea at least three times day.

Let me know how you go with the collecting.  If you want to sample mine –  $25 for 20g plus $5 postage.  Fresh picked (wild crafted) from the MtMacedon Trees.

A LETTER FROM MERYL STREEP…..

“I no longer have patience for certain things,
not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply
because I reached a point in my life
where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me.

I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism
and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please
those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me
and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me.

I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie
or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist
anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise.

I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic
arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping.

I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world
of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid
and inflexible personalities.

In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal.
I do not get along with those who do not know how
to give a compliment or a word of encouragement.

Exaggerations bore me
and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals.
And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience.”

I will see you on the mat (or on zoom)

NAMASTE.  JAHNE

 

 

 

 

Dear Yogis,

A beautiful weekend, and all you Spring Carnival people, there is going to be  “Spring Carnival”.  I knew that the government would think of some way to resurrect The Cup.  Imagine the millions of dollars they would lose if it was cancelled, and the ongoing problems with breeders, and trainers (and countries who donate).

SCHEDULE:
STUDIO: YOGA – MONDAY 1pm (full), WEDNESDAY 1pm (full), 5.30 (one vacancy available), Friday 5.30 (full) WAIT-LIST available for each class.  We will be able to accept more students when restrictions ease.

ZOOM: Monday 6.30 Teacher Training, Tuesday 7.30 CCP, Friday 6.45 Tarot.

YOGA:  As the restrictions are gradually lifted we will be able to bring more people in to a class.  At the present moment because of size we are limited to three students and I cannot take casuals.  You have to sign up for the four consecutive sessions.  At the present only Wednesday 5.30 has vacancies.  If you would like to come any other day, maybe Friday at 1pm, then let me know and I can organise a class and see how many would like to join you.

HERBS (AND MUSHROOMS) for your health
For those of you waiting patiently, I have just been notified that the Shilajit is on its way.  It will be here maybe Thursday?  Maybe earlier?  I also have some hawthorn tea (a mild herbal tea good for the heart), which I sourced and dried myself.  When you purchase any of the other herbs this week i will add some Hawthorn tea to the package so you can give it a try.

If you are holding back with your shilajit order, please get your request in early – it sells out quickly and is hard to get at the present time.  I also have some TYOH OIL for only $27.50 for a tiny 5ml dropper bottle.  You don’t need much.  The oils are very strong and are wild sourced in Peru.

When you buy a herb or our oil, please buy two.  Why?  It is hard to source glass dropper bottles, the ingredients sometimes are hard to get due to shipping, and then Australia Post is very slow.  If you purchase ahead of time, buy two and get express post, you will be doing the absolute best and spreading postal cost across more stock, you will have a little stash, and lockdowns can come and go without making a difference to your requirements.

ART AND TAROT
I haven’t finished the “Mary Book”, I know that, and the cards are sitting on my desk, however, I have started the FUNGI TAROT/ORACLE and am amassing information for the book. Of course Magic Mushrooms will be a big part of the cards as will SUPER MUSHROOMS, the mushrooms we turn to in order to boost our health and especially the immune system.  The mycelium can even be used to feed bees in the winter months.

You will be amazed how much you can learn once you concentrate on FANTASTIC FUNGI.  Go to Netflix and watch the film, it is worthwhile.

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

 

I will see you on the mat.

NAMASTE – JAHNE

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yogis,

Another day in Camelot.  Good one day, perfect the next.   I hope it is like this for you.  

Before we start two “shout-outs”.  One to Susie McConville who is today going to hospital for an eye operation.  Personally, I would rather have a leg off than someone fiddle with my eyes no matter how many diplomas they had!  Please put Susie in your prayers and meditations.  Even if you don’t know her, the Universe does.

Another Shout-out to Vicky who is a member of our tarot group.  She came on board early in Covid, and has stayed the course.  Every week there she is – never misses a class.  “Happy Birthday Vicky – 21 Again!”

SCHEDULE:
ZOOM – FRIDAY, 6.45 TAROT. SATURDAY 2PM TAROT MAKING/ART. SUNDAY 10AM CCP
STUDIO – FRIDAY 5.30 YOGA. MONDAY 1PM YOGA. WEDNESDAY/FRIDAY 5.30 YOGA

TYOH OIL and other terpenes.  With spring sort of on our doorstep…. my students are looking at their stock of oils and mushroom powders.  Please order as soon as you can, and perhaps get two instead of one. This is be your little stock just in case there is a problem getting glass bottles (at the moment this is the case), problems getting supplies, and problems getting through the post.  Always plan to pay express post unless you don’t mind delays.  Any questions? Email me.yogafirst@netcon.net.au

 

CCP:  If you ever have considered being a “DeathDoula” a Funeral Celebrant, a Companion to those in need, then you will appreciate this SHORT course.  It is not just about being a Death-Doula, we are “Life and Death-Doulas”.  A new course will be starting shortly and we would like to see you join us.

Email yogafirst@netcon.net.au and I will send you an application/information pack.

 

TAROT:  I haven’t yet written the book to go with the ORACLE OF MARY.  I am pleased with the cards, I have finished them although I think there could be a card I need to do in order to complete the deck – this is holding up the process which will scream along once I have resolved the issue.

I am also working on a FUNGI ORACLE.  This will be black and white.  The first drawing is of a release of spores.  This makes me consider so many things including the seeding of life on earth.  Every spore released from a fungi is a potential life in the same way a sperm is… except there are millions in every release from a mushroom or fungi.  The next card I am planning is of mycelium which is a vast underground communication system.  This allows plants and trees to communicate via their root systems using the mycelium as a conduit.

Once you grasp this,  you will understand how magical and how complex this is.  Doing the drawings is most exciting, and doing the book will be even more so.  We are talking about THE FLIGHT OF THE FEATHERED SERPENT – Inter-dimensional travel, the seeding of the earth and extra-terrestrials.  Even Crick who discovered the design of DNA said that it could not have been accidental, or something that came out of chaos, it must have been designed by an extraordinary mind.  I am sure when we unpack it in its entirety we will be able to see that mind more clearly.  It will speak to us.

I will see you on the mat.

NAMASTE JAHNE
