TEACHER TRAINING THIS COMING WEEKEND. DON’T FORGET PAPER AND WRITING MATERIALS. MULTI COLOURS IS HELPFUL FOR SOME. PLEASE WRITE IN DIARY. THIS MONTH, TEACHER TRAINING WILL BE FOLLOWED BY PENDULUM INFORMATION SESSION (optional – $5).
Creative exploration is a lifelong voyage of discovery where the journey itself is the goal. My sessions are designed to help you discover art making as a great nourisher of the human psyche, and to experience firsthand the potential in art for transformation, healing and insight.
Experience the joy of painting and drawing by learning to trust your intuitive self. Painting this natural, gentle way allows you to let go of the inner critic that keeps you away from your full aliveness and creativity. All you need is the desire to paint, and the courage to express yourself. No art experience necessary.
Tuesdays: 7pm to 9pm Mandala Painting on wood, $250 for 5 sessions,
Fridays at 6.30 to 8.30 “Ladies Painting Nite” $30 per session,
Saturday 9am-10am Sumii ink painting $30 per session,
All materials provided.
AT THE STUDIO
This morning I taught at the Church again. Classes are getting bigger and bigger.. One of the students came without socks – they won’t do that again. Every week the hall looks better and better as small improvements are made, but at the moment, heating is not one of those improvements. At best it is scant – but we hardy yoga folk manage. In the old days we expected yoga classes to be a bit chilly… no central heating then!
As usual we had a lunch provided to the community (not just us) by the Church and next week we have to add a new table. More and more are turning up for the lunch, as you would! The food is cooked by the lunchers when they can donate….and beautiful. Home-made pumpkin soup, veg soup, cakes of all kinds, warm fresh breads, bagels, fruit platter… . The Hare Krishna group would call it Prasadam. It is such a loving space.
When lunch is over we do a 45 minute meditation in the church. It is gorgeous to meditate in a sacred space. The very high ceilings have to be accommodated though – the acoustics are pretty challenging. I had to turn the music up, and speak louder. The whole morning was wonderful, please join us. One of our newest students said as she left “that was fantastic – I just didn’t realise how much was made available for us, and so close by… I will be here every week”. We have lots of space for lots more students, and I have some bookings for the Friday 3pm class in the Church. If you can come, you will love it. And just the right price too – by donation! Experience not necessary.
STUDIO CLASSES are filling up. Please, if you say you are coming, come. If you can’t, then please let me know. My home Studio is not huge, and I want to take as many as I can, but I can’t hold your place if you only come occasionally. If you have told me you are coming to a specific class then I hold the place for you – it could mean I turn someone away which is unfortunate if you don’t come. Of course, if you want a private class to suit your very own special timetable, I can do that, but the cost od a one-on-one is $85.
Our Tuesday night MEDITATION MANDALA painting classes are progressing fabulously well. The first session has finished, and we are booking for the next set of 5 classes for September. Although I specified the 4th September start, the present class just wants to keep going, so, they are… – if you want to come on the 28th or start on the 4th. It is up to you.
Go to www.jahnehopewilliams.com to see more, and email me to book your spot.
TUESDAYS from7pm- 9pm COST $250 for 5 classes – we are taking September bookings.
All materials will be provided. By the end of the class you will have a unique image to take home, and frame to put in your own meditation room. Maybe good enough, stunning enough to be an heirloom. No painting experience needed. If you are nimble enough to sign your own name, you can do these classes.
SUMII (ZEN YOGA) BRUSHPAINTING – “ONE BREATH ONE LINE” Fridays 12.30 and 6.30pm and Saturdays at 9am and 2.30.
This is the traditional painting on rice paper, but once the fundamentals are achieved, with a twist. On the longer Friday and Saturday afternoon classes, we will be doing it the “zen way” and painting things that can’t be painted. Love, joy, yoga, spirit, speed…etc etc. No right, no wrong, just what you can do. Your expression. We will be using traditional materials, we will be doing yoga breathing, AND A PAINTING will be the result.. Grind the ink, use the brush, paint the painting….. Sounds easy, BUT as in yoga, the foundations are everything.
THE LATEST ART SHOW – THE REVELATION TAROT.
On Sunday I put up the latest exhibition. An exhibition and sale of the original tarot cards. This cannot be repeated. If you are unable to come to the show, and would like to buy a framed card, you can, just let me know which is your favourite card and I will put it away for you – all $175 plus postage. You can come and collect it, or I can post it – although they are framed, so not inexpensive to post. Call me to register your interest: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to donate ….. please direct debit any amount to The GitaJaia Yoga Foundation, Commonwealth Bank in Woodend. 063806 10200584. Any amount will help, no matter how small.
Please come to the show, please buy a painting. It all goes to The Foundation.
Please… if you want a session, WE CAN DO. Even at a distance. We can identify additional minerals and supplements, balance your diet, test for food sensitivities…. Health, business whatever. $55 one question, $75 two questions $150 for a general life reading for people who are stuck. On the farm I never made a change without dowsing first. If you want to see if it makes a difference go see what the farm has become without the magic of dowsing – it is a dying jungle.
If you want a life reading, your house made well from underground streams or geopathic stress, or want your garden explored for sculpture, rock or major tree placement sites… I can help you.
Why Register with THE AUSTRALASIAN YOGA INSTITUTE?
It is about LINEAGE. You trained with us, you are a part of our lineage (or we are a part of yours), Registration supports this. PLEASE, PLEASE CHECK YOUR REGISTRATION. You need to be currently registered for your insurance to be valid, and you will need to supply a copy of a valid registration to be insured.

REGISTRATION – CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENT.
THIS APPLIES TO EVERYONE.
We have fallen in line with other organisations and ask people who are registered with us and wish to re-register to do at least one short course in the year as a continuing education requirement. You need to keep up. You can do one of my little courses on ETSY, or someone else’s, doesn’t have to be onerous, just something to keep you on your academic toes so to speak. Just watching a DVD won’t be enough unless you actually write a report on what you watched and why you watched it – the outcome – how it changed how you do what you do.

There are lots of books there to help you in your progress to graduation. If you do your course WITHOUT reading the hypermobility books, you will find your work being questioned.
TAROT/TAROT POUCHES/PENDULUMS…. my artwork will be available on ETSY as soon as I can load them up. Keep dropping in to check. It’s like a shop. For the best pieces, and the best deals, you need to go in every now and then and see what stock has arrived.

If you do want to speak to me personally, then email, make a time suitable for both of us, and then we can chat.
