Years ago I bought THE FLIGHT OF THE FEATHERED SERPENT – A guide to the MAYA tarot deck.  Beautifully written and illustrated it was well worth  the AUS$15 (US$8.95).  Even at that price people were aghast.  What an expense for a deck that no-one knows they said.  I was told I should have bought a Rider-Waite Tarot Deck.  Well a Rider-Waite is still about the same price, BUT, the Tarot Book I purchased (just the book) is now worth $1,300!  An investment in myself and the tarot, and I still use it and love it.   More please!


Thank you to all those wonderful studio owners who spent time holding events to raise money for the fire affected in our communities.  The firefighters and the townspeople. Some are going to make their efforts on going – once a month.  What a wonderful effort.   On the other side of the coin, I have heard some disappointing stories about the arrogant and selfish attitude of some homeowners who had their houses saved, but there will always be these people among us.  If we are ceaselessly loving with them, they could change.  We all have our journey.  Get disappointed, but don’t get angry.

In the Macedon Ranges where I live, it has rained, the temperature as I write this is about 16C, and at this moment, all is well.  I am going to work hard this year to do everything I can to make next year even safer at my house – the dowsing rods will be a great help in this.  But, In the end, it is the luck of the draw.  As I have told you – on Ash Wednesday my parents lost their house entirely, my house burned down and my cast iron stove melted into a puddle.  Guess what, my washing was still on the line and apart from a few cinder holes was perfect.  Next time,  I think I will sit under the washing on the clothes line.



Started this morning (Tuesdays and Fridays at 10.30 at The Neighbourhood House in Woodend, and was terrific.  We covered all the important things required to have a mobile body functioning well, even if standing is not something that comes easily.  Breathing, stretching, balancing, meditating.  It was a class even my usual yoga students could attend to good value.



Saturday the 1st, 8th and 15th of February from 2pm to 4pm.  The first class happened, and if you want to join the class now, having missed one you are welcome – or you can come to the next one.  We didn’t just do the tarot, I introduced the class to dowsing rods, pendulum, distance healing, and more.  I am sure they will be doing small readings for themselves and others whilst we wait for this Saturday class to roll around.   HEALING SICK HOUSES is something that can be achieved with Dowsing Rods and/or pendulum, and is a subject we will be touching on.  ENERGY SAVING around the home is another subject.  I can do this with your house, or I can teach you how to do this.



Thank you all those students who have re-registered.  We did get a couple of students who dismissed the whole idea, and that is their point of view HOWEVER, I view this as a way for you to keep contact with us, to support us, and demonstrate that you respect and are grateful for the qualifications you achieved through us.

I do have students who have gone on to found stellar schools who (like most of you) could never have done their teacher training if they had to go to a classroom situation on specific days, for a specific time.  Because we do distance (and were the first), they were able to do their training on time, on budget.  These students pretend that they did their initial training in India or the USA, and never support us.  It is not honest, and it definitely is not yoga.  It is also very disappointing.  Once they got what they wanted, they just ate their way up the food chain.  The difference between them and The Kardashians?  Not much.  A very 21st century way of looking at things perhaps.

Please support us with your registrations – we need you.  These ongoing funds allow us to offer our course at a low, low price, and support students in many  different ways.  Thank you to everyone who helps us in this way.  You do need  to properly register with us to be insured ain the right way with AON, but please know, it is not just that, not just administration – in a way it is a demonstration of love, friendship and support.  It shows you are a part of our HUGE yoga family – WE ARE YOUR LINEAGE..



Busy, busy but there is always room for you.  Please email me to book.  I am contemplating teaching couples massage (to couples).  No sex massage, but a loving, useful massage that husbands and wives can explore often and together.  I was inspired by a friend of mine, Indian, who has a time set aside every Sunday to explore this with his wife.  he looks much younger than his years, has a great skin quality (and about 4 children!!!).  When I have asked husbands and wives individually, they express insecurity about being able to massage properly, seriously,  and assist their partner in this way.  If you are interested, please let me know.



Lets travel to the past or to the future.  Just let me know when you would like to do it.  Remember you will need 2 hours.  I have started painting the things that we see and speak of.  I think they will be an interesting series of artworks.
