Nine years ago I started studying Mary Magdalen.  What a great gal.  Not a sinner, not a prostitute – a fantastic teacher, apostle, wife, and the person who organised the funding for The Jesus ministry… what could He have done without her.  Nothing nearly so well.

It is so hard to study her because the Church has needed to keep her subservient.  There are fabulous paintings of her,  even pregnant, however, I found only one important painting of her teaching.

As there were THREE Marys – Mary Magdalen, Mary the Mother of Jesus and Mary his sister (True!), I have decided to include them in the tarot, as it seems they were often together with the other women. I will keep you updates as I move along with this project. It is much bigger than I planned.



It is still raining, and goes from warm to chill.  It is beautiful weather and I am forever grateful to the Universe for looking after us in this way. I did buy the soaker hose to keep the deck wet in case of fire, and will keep on adding things to the fire conscious effort to make the house less “flammable”.



Has started, and I am so pleased.  It will take a while to get people organised.  I have been asked what does “chair” mean.  Is it a Tibetan word??? No.  It is English. Maybe I should have used a difficult other-wordly word.  Just for Romance?



The two hours we spend discovering the tarot just fly by.  I try to encourage my students to rely on their intuition rather than their MINDS, and I believe we are succeeding.  Just having 22 cards as the major arcana, and 13 minors is so much easier, and allows the reader to fly.

I am holding a second class in March.  As in the last one, we will be exploring dowsing.

HEALING SICK HOUSES (and exorcisms of sorts) 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.




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.

Please support us as we support you.

The journal pages to help you are on Etsy.  They match the to-do things I encourage you to journal every day to complete your yoga teacher training,  They can be totaled and used to compile your passport, which is s stumbling block for some students, but necessary to get better marks at the end of the course.  No Passport? No distinction!  Simple.



Busy, busy but there is always room for you.  Please email me to book.  As in the tarot – my heart, my intuition leads.  I do not do massage “by the book”.  My advice?  First, EAT THE BOOK.


PAST LIFE CONSULTATIONS: 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 do this for myself, and it helps enormously, although I am still working out what my per elephant REALLY means.

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.


MY PAST LIVES – the book has been released and is on ETSY.  This may help you to understand my journey, and anticipate one of your own.  It is interesting that more people are coming from the future in these sessions than from the past…they have come to heal and to teach.


MY DOLL BOOK:  If you would like to make easy dolls to ease your tension (or brighten up a day), this is the pattern you need.  Go to ETSY.


Watch my FREE UTUBE CHANNEL.  It is amazing how Hypermobility and the endocannabinoid system fit together.  Please watch the youtube channel, or get the hew books on ETSY.




I write books to help you in your course.  Please download them, and then please use them in answering your modules. HYPERMOBILITY – The Course…. A certificate course.  If you teach yoga, you need this.  No excuses.


MODULE DRAWINGS, DOWNLOADS.  You will notice on the bottom of every assessment there is a reminder that drawings need to be done, and in your own hand, and downloads of any kind will not be marked.  Every page needs to have your name, module number, and page number.

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.


Don’t forget to Register if you are teaching even if you have not graduated (especially if you have not graduated), insure and re-subscribe to the videos every 12 months.   Don’t leave these to the last minute.
