……if you have not taken the time to listen to this GREAT BELL CHANT please do – I am sure you will love it.       Have you checked out our UTUBE channel – it’s free.  Google “Jahne Hope-Williams YouTube” and it will get you there.



Winter is coming and our classes are small, warm, and gentle.  We are still at the Home Studio,  37 Morris Road in Woodend.  Please go to click on classes. Our classes (by popular demand) are primarily RESTORATIVE YOGA  although on Mondays at 1pm we do have the “by donation” class at the Uniting Church, and the usual Hatha at 6.30 at the Studio.  It is such a fun class.  For more classes and times, please go to the web site


EXPLORING HEMP (not marijuana)

Hemp is often confused in peoples’ minds with its hallucinogenic cousin – marijuana. Hemp doesn’t contain the same chemicals, so it can never make you high.

I am writing a book on my finding, and will alert you when it is ready. Locally, in the meanwhile, go to Natures Garden in Woodend.  They are very knowledgable, and stock reputable organic brands, but there are lots out there. You are looking for oils and seeds with a very high Omega 6 reading, high protein, and a high balanced 3 and 9.

I love hemp seed milk.  One third of a cup of hulled hemp seed, 2 cups of cold water, dates or coconut sugar if you like it a little sweeter – how much is up to you.  Blend and strain.  There is hardly anything left after blending for about a minute.   If you want hemp cream (delicious) cut down on the water to get the desired consistency.



If any of you would like a tarot reading, or a healing session, then do make an appointment with me – I even work on weekends.  For a booking email:

The REVELATION TAROT is now in its 10thyear on ETSY.  I am at present waiting for scanning and then printing of the extension 13 cards, “Gates and Guardians” and “Natures Oracles”,  Apparently they will be ready on Tuesday, and I have written and bound a lovely booklet to accompany them. 

If you want a worksbook encompassing both the original dack, and the new 13, it is on the ETSY site, and ready to go….  There are also ready-to-frame cards.  See them on the You Tube Channel together with our FREE Tarot Course.  Google “Jahne Hope-Williams YouTube” and please subscribe.
