THIS IS A REPEAT – Please. If you can, download this song. It is quite beautiful.



You can get all my class times and details from the web site if you forget. Go to and go to the page called CLASSES. Much easier than any other way. I know that many of you don’t read down as far as the class times in the newsletter. It is easier to go straight to the web rather than have to email and ask.

TUESDAYS from7pm- 9pm

COST $250 for 5 classes – or $50 per session

All materials will be provided.

By the end of the 5 classes 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.


I am still open to teaching on a Saturday morning at 9am. This is a one hour class where I will teach SUMII (Chinese/Japanese) brush painting. The cost of this class is $30. You are most welcome even if you haven’t done this before. It is also a great class for people wanting to work on their brush skills. All materials provided.



…of my art, at my studio on Sunday the 25th November between 2 and 4pm. This will be the first time in years I have held an exhibition in my studio, and it is a preview of the work in the print sets.   It will be just like a European “vernissage”. My work, a private view with nibbles and champagne. An art “happening” in the comfort of my studio. Come along, have a look at the artwork, spend time in the garden. A beautiful afternoon talking art (and yoga). If you are interested please contact me. It is a small studio, and the viewing will be by invitation.

The miniature pictured below is of a collectors edition Dior bag.  The bag itself is no Longer available except on collector sites – but you can have a painting….  I was amazed that some handbags (that look just like nice handbags to me) are $26,500 SECOND HAND.  There is months waiting time to get one of the shelf.  A wait list.  Some people like Victoria Beckam for instance have a wardrobe of them – one to match every special outfit!  Imagine what we could do at the food bank with $26,500!

You can see from the size of the image compared to the smallest brush I can buy, that these images are tiny.  Approximately 15mmx15mm,  You could buy this bag new for about $9,000, but I don’t think you can buy them other than at vintage sites now. The bag is hand painted leather, and DIOR.

When you buy a miniature you are making it possible for me to give that amount of free time at yoga and volunteering.

…….is now upon us. I put out my home-made wasp traps this week and have caught three queens a day. Three queens that didn’t find their way into my roof or walls as they did on previous years. Unlike bees, wasp queens go out searching to a place, and the workers join her. Catch the queens and you head off infestation. If we all did this, there would be less wasp problems. Go to the web site www. LAURIELURE to find out the way to make your own traps (that really work).



I write books to help you. What will you find on ETSY? YAMAS, CHAKRAS, HYPERMOBILITY, THE FIVE TIBETANS AND TEMPLATES and more. There are lots of books there to help you in your progress with yoga.      PENDULUMS/TAROT/TAROT POUCHES: All locked and loaded ready for you. Like any other store – if you want the best prices, the best items, you have to drop in often.


EMAIL/POST:  Please use the email address  for anything to do with accounts,  or the usual to get to me. If you do want to speak to me personally, then email, make a time suitable for both of us, and then we can chat.  If you do it this way, rather than just “wing it”, you can be reasonably sure I have time, and you will get my attention.  POSTAL ADDRESS is not at my home –Please address all land mail to PO Box 14, Mt.Macedon.  Vic. 3441.  Until you see a change written here in large letters, that is where it will be.
