ATTENTION ALL WHO HAVE NOT WATCHED THIS …..This is a wonderful, wonderful GREAT BELL CHANT, by Thitch Nat Hahn.  Pay particular attention to his walking meditation. That is how I would like you all to practice.  Looks easy – but notice he is doing it on a busy sidewalk.



I am still excited about the possibilities of hemp to your practice and your life.  I know how it has affected me.  The latest change that I noticed a few days ago (wasn’t paying attention) is to my skin.  I had patches of Sebboreic Dermatitis on my body.  I had been to the doctor on a number of occasions and they suggested some high strength drugs which I wasn’t happy with, so I just put it in the “too hard basket” and apart from occasionally using a moisture cream, did nothing..  nothing changed.

Long story short – my skin problem is almost vanished.  Just one small patch left,  the size of a freckle.  The hemp is the only thing I have changed…  it is fantastic.

I have spoken with manufacturers and producers, and they reminded me that this hemp I use isn’t strong in THC.  It could just be that the high levels of omegas, protein etc is what made the difference.  Whatever it is, I am good with that. I feel fantastic, calm, grounded, ready for what is next.

Both hemp and Marijuana are considered Cannabis by genus and species, but that is where the similarity ends.  Marijuana (Cannabis Indicus) has been cultivated mostly for its recreational value although it does have medicinal usage, and decades ago hemp (Cannabis Sativa)  although not hallucinogenic,  got dumped under the same heading.  It is amazing how scared people are to use it.  They both join with and support the body’s endocannabinoid system.  You may not have heard about the ECS, but it is a major system which sits alongside the other 11 major systems.  It is the most exciting medical topic, and will now get lots of air-play.

Cannabis in all its forms was not able to be researched until they were taken off the illegal lists in most countries.  They are still regulated, but they can now be studied.   They excite me because of the way that cannabis sativa supports the ECS and its use supports and regulates hypermobility syndrome – it is complex of course.  Whilst not a magic bullet, it can help us work with and  minimise the internal symptoms.  Come to Shepparton and learn more. Or go to our YouTube channel.


MASSAGE:  I love anything hands-on, and now I have the hemp, I will be using the creams and balms in my massage consultations.  I know how they have worked with me, and I know they will work with you.  The brand name that I am working with at the present time is ROYAL HEMP.  You can google them

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.


HYPERMOBILITY (the course)

The new course is on the ETSY site.

Watch my FREE UTUBE CHANNEL.  Hypermobility, Purushatras, and so on.  There is lots there – do one video per day..  Google “Jahne Hope-Williams You Tube”.  There is everything you need to start your study.  Don’t go to google first and then give up and go to our materials. We have done the hard work for you – use it.

 There will soon be a booklet on Hemp and how it can help your students who are demonstrating Hypermobility no matter where in the body it occurs.



The “strawberries and cream” of yoga.   More Restorative (Remedial) classes.  Look at the web site for dates and times. I am building and building on this…  It is what passionately interests me as it links with hypermobility and now, HEMP.

Please check your insurance requirements – keep up to date. We have moved to AON insurance.  You will be able to insure on-line BUT you will need a current (student or graduate) Registration to prove you are a member with us to get the advantages that a big firm like AON can offer.

CPE:  To bring us in line with INTERNATIONAL requirements rather than just Australian, we will only be requiring you to do your CPE every 3 years, do it round about the same time you do your first aid which is also a 3 year requirement.
